Card Ideas

Written and Created by PaperCraftCentral Susan

Are you looking for new card ideas? On this page I will add all the recent card projects I have developed for my regular classes being held each month.

Many of the cards featured on this page are made by people who attended my classes, using kits and instructions I provided for them.

You may find a way to get a free card kit or two on this page, so if that interests you, do read on!

Floral Essence Card Ideas


One of the first cards I designed in the new Stampin' Up! year was the Floral Essence card pictured above. It's an off-centre gate fold card.

Inside it can look like this:

We did not have the Leaf Punch (item 144667) at the time so we fussy cut the few leaves on the card, or just stamped them straight onto the cardstock.

If you like this card and would enjoy having a kit to make it, purchase the Floral Essence bundle (item number 151055) from me at my SusanSalutations online store and contact me to request your kit.

I'll check your order and send you a kit to help you get started making projects with your new stamp set and punch.

Here's another way you could make a card with this bundle, created in class by Shirley Tait:

Good Morning Magnolia Card Ideas


This lovely stamp set really caught my eye, especially after I saw a card created by Eva Doblias. I tweaked her card idea a little, especially with the colours I used, and created this card:

Aren't the flowers and leaves gorgeous?

I also made use of an embossing folder that is now retired on this card, but I think the Magnolia Embossing Folder (item no 149579) would look nice in the background there too. 

Here's how the inside of the card could look, and the envelope as well:

Decorating the inside of your card and adding an image to the envelope as well really makes your card ideas stand out.

I think Shelli Gardner's (co-founder and Board Member of Stampin' Up!) philosophy of never sending a naked envelope out into the world has stuck with me! Lol!
