Simple Joys from a Club Stamp Kit

Club Stamp is a delightful club. It ships in that sweet flat rate envelope provided by the US Postal Service and contains the perfect parcel of goods. (Stamps, papers, embellies!)

I spent a little time with the Trees kit and created fourteen greeting cards with some extra details. You'll begin by preparing the 12-pack of 8.5x11 papers with only four different formulas.

1. Score the 8.5x11 Dark Green, Light Green, Beige and White Prints vertically at 4.25". Cut horizontally at 5.5". Fold each 5.5x8.5 horizontally at 4.25".

2. Trim the 8.5x11 Gold Foil Handmade, Dark Green, Light Green, Beige and White Prints horizontally at 5.5". Cut one 5.5x8.5 horizontally at 7.5 and 4". Trim the 4x5.5 horizontally at 5.25". Cut the 3.5x5.5 horizontally at 4.75". Score and fold the remaining 5.5x8.5 horizontally at 4.25".

3. Tear away the four outside edges of each 8.5x11 White Text Prints. Using the artwork as your guide, tear along the remaining inside edges to create four art panels with torn edges.

4. Trim one 8.5x11 Gold Foil Handmade vertically at 8 and 4". Cut each 4x11 horizontally at 10.5 and 5.25". Trim the .5x11 horizontally at 10.5 and 5.25".

The whole process will leave you with a bunch of card bases, panels, and narrow strips ranging from 1/2 to 1". Nest the panels onto the card bases, interchanging colors as you go. Incorporate the remaining narrow strips with stamped sentiments, or simply use as anchoring elements on the finished cards.

Check out how the cards turned out!

Four simple double-panel notecards.

The narrow handmade paper strips and leaf-shaped brads finish things off.
Use just one or three equally spaced brads as an accent.
The narrow strips are all usable elements!
