Card Making With Simple Stories & Studio Calico

Posted by Tyra Babington
Check out a few creative cards using beautiful collections from Studio Calico and Simple Stories.

Simple Stories I AM Collection

These cards were created using elements from Simple Stories I AM Collection, including SNAP! 3x4 Cards, Chipboard Frames and the 6x6 paper pad. I've said it many times and I'll say it again: I love using elements from collections as they remove the frustration of coordinating different elements, making card making super easy!

Studio Calico Print Shop Collection

Studio Calico's Print Shop Collection features 18 different patterns with colors that cover the rainbow! The possibilities are endless with this fresh offering. Here I used stamps, also from Studio Calico and a classic circle metal die to create card with a beautiful color contrast and a lot of movement.

Tip: For layering, I typically cut card "panels" from patterned paper sized to 4.25 x 5.5, 4 x 5 and 3.5 by 3.5 inches. I layer and slightly rotate each panel to give my card a lot of movement and contrast. Go ahead and give it a try!

I hope I have inspired you to get creating! Thanks so much for stopping by!
