Have A Great Day

Think a simple black stamped image is boring? Designer Sharon Callis proves that it doesn’t have to be! It’s all about the background here when Sharon stamped her Mini stamp on a funky yellow pattern from Authentique’s Blissful collection. The pattern and bold color, contrasted with the black graphic, bring a fun retro vibe to this greeting!

With its gray and yellow color scheme, and the car graphic, this card would be great to send to a man – but is still fine for a woman with retro taste, too. The sentiment can be adapted with a note inside when sending it to fit a special day like a birthday, as well as just being for everyday. It’s always a great idea to have some flexible, general purpose cards like this tucked away in your card stash so you are never left without a card for an occasion.

Supplies | Patterned Paper: Authentique Paper 6×6 pad (Blissful). Stamp: docrafts (Nostalgia Classic Cars by John Byars). Ink: Tsukineko StazOn (Jet Black). Ribbon: unknown. Adhesive: Xyron (Mega Runner).
