Quick and Easy Handmade Card Featuring Pattern Play Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. While playing with some stamps out on the craft table this weekend, I thought well maybe we should continue making cards using the Playing with Patterns Suite (AC pp. 100-102). I am not certain if this card qualifies for Simple Stamping status as it uses the coordinating Playful Alphabet Dies, but it was super easy and quick to put together.

The card base is a side fold A2 (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, cut in half at 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in Crushed Curry cardstock. The mat is a pretty pattern sheet from the Playing with Patterns 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper (cut 4" x 5 1/4" in a landscape format). I used the Playful Alphabet Dies for the "HBD" initials -- which for those of you unsure, this is an abbreviation used in social media for Happy Birthday!! I cut a set of "HBD" from a scrap of Calypso Coral and inlaid to create this fun element.

My sentiment is from the Pattern Play Stamp Set and I popped up the two small inset words to add some detail. I also added two 1/4" strips of coordinating cardstock to create sections.

We will be using the Pattern Play SS to make a couple of cards at the February workshop (Sat. Feb. 20). It will be a Facebook Live this month. As always I recommend purchasing the coordinating dies, Playful Alphabet, to take advantage of the 10% discount pricing, however, I will not be using the dies during our virtual workshop to prevent excluding those crafty fans that do not have a die cut machine yet -- but you really should consider purchasing the new Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine (there is even a mini version!).

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!  I hope my project has inspired your creativity. Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.
