What if I told you that you can make an easy DIY card in minutes and that it would look fabulous? One thing I love about today’s method is that you can use whatever scrapbook or designer series paper you have on hand.
One paper I highly recommend is the ‘Hello, Irresistible’ designer series paper. It’s amazing with great colors and patterns. You can only find this paper on my website — it’s an online-only exclusive offer. You’ll also see the stamp set and craft dies that coordinate with this paper and you can purchase them separately or as a bundle.
To top off my easy DIY card and make it look extra fabulous I used the ‘Loose Frosted Dots’. You can simply add them with a little liquid glue or a mini glue dot but they add those really nice finishing touches to your card.
I know you’ll use this card layout over and over making it perfect as today’s Mystery Monday card. Make a birthday card, a thank you card, a masculine card—-whatever your heart desires and matches the stamped greeting you want to use.

Beautiful card, but … There’s always a “but”, right? So, but: in the Netherlands, this color combo would be used for a sympathy card! This Monday morning, I struggled with the instructions in the 1st clue. Now I know why. There was nothing about landscape or portrait, so I decided to make a landscape card and cut my DSP accordingly. It didn’t make sense. So, after Norway, I’ll just make the colors match in my DSP choices 😉
