Monday: Simple & Sweet

Sometimes you just need a card... FAST! It doesn't need to look like a million bucks (or that you spent a million hours on it)... it just needs to look nice and be simple and sweet. Today we're starting a blog feature that I hope to continue weekly: Monday: Simple & Sweet. Pretty self-explanatory, but to sum it up, we'll be featuring a simple and sweet card (or project) weekly on Monday with the list of supplies so you can make one, too!
Today's card uses only one stamp set and a small amount of supplies. The polka dot embossed background is optional and a plain piece of cardstock can be used instead for a card that still looks great! Here's our Simple & Sweet card for Monday this week.

1. Fold a 5.5" x 4.25" piece of Bermuda Bay CS in half to form card base. Round all corners. Set aside.

2. OPTIONAL: If desired, place a 3.75" x 5" piece of Very Vanilla CS in PERFECT POLKA DOTS TEXTURED IMPRESSIONS DIE and send through Sizzix Big Shot. Round all corners and attach to Bermuda Bay card front with SNAIL adhesive.

3. Stamp flower image from Wow Flowers stamp set on Very Vanilla CS in Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, and Pretty in Pink classic ink. Stamp round happy birthday image from Wow Flowers stamp set in Bermuda Bay on Very Vanilla CS. Punch out stamped images with 1-1/4" circle punch.

4. Punch out 1 Curly Label out of each: Chocolate Chip CS, Bermuda Bay CS, Pretty in Pink CS, and Old Olive CS. Attach Curly Label punched shapes to card front in a square pattern with SNAIL adhesive. Attach stamped and punched circles to corresponding colored curly labels with Stampin' Dimensionals.

5. Tie a small piece of 1/4" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain ribbon into a knot. Trim ends and attach to card front with a mini glue dot.

Simple and sweet, right? =)
