If you need a quick and cheerful card to make for someone who might be feeling a little down, this one is it! It uses some scraps I had laying around (which I bet you have too) so it goes together in a jif! Really!
Whoever you send it to will love it!
Isn’t this fun?
All the elements work together really well, but I think it’s the paper that steals this show! Bright and cheerful hearts and dots…there is no way you can go wrong with that!
It’s from the new Pattern Party Designer Series Paper pack. Fabulous bright-toned patterns and designs all with a black and white design on the reverse. I know it was one of the first things I needed from the new catalogue.
Pattern Party DSP?
But the question is, where the heck IS it?
It’s not in with the other DSP on pages 130-134. That’s because it’s a host reward gift. I think this has to be one of the first times I’ve seen patterned paper as a host reward. And it’s quite a reward!
Here are all of the wonderful designs you get in the package.
48, yes four-eight, pieces of 12″x12″ paper! You’ll find all kinds of ways to use up the whole package…or share it with a friend.
But how do you get it? With a $200 single order or with a bunch of friends placing orders over $200, it’s yours for only $24…that’s only 50 cents a sheet! What a super deal!

Quick and Cheerful Card to Make
This card is even better close up.
I mentioned I made it with scraps. How’d I do that?
Every time I cut out dies, I will run additional items through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. I can never have enough circles in Basic White and use them lots. So the funky circle was in my stash. And so was the larger Real Red one. So all I had to do was pull them out, stamp on the white one and add them to my card.
You might also have some extra cut dies hanging around…use them up for a quick and cheerful card to make like this.
Here are all the measurements, supplies and steps to help you.
Cuttin’ It Up!
- patterned paper – 4″ x 5 1/4″
- Basic Black cardstock – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
- Whisper White cardstock – large scrap
- Real Red cardstock – large scrap
- white crinkle seam binding ribbon – about 18″
Let’s Make It!
1.Fold card and crisp up fold line with your bone folder.
2. Wrap ribbon around the width of the patterned paper and tie in a bow on the left hand side. Adhere patterned paper to Basic Black card.
2. Stamp greeting from the Peaceful Moments stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto large scrap of Basic White. Zip through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine with the circular die from Painted Labels.
3. Die cut larger circle (2 7/8″ diameter) from scrap of Real Red cardstock. Glue sentiment circle on top then add dimensionals to the back of red circle.
4. Attach to right side of card over top of ribbon.
There you go! A quick and cheerful card that’s ready to pop in an envelope!
You might even want to decorate the flap of the envelope with one of my ideas in this video. Or take a peek at the envelope in this post which uses paper from this fantastic Pattern Party package too!
Now It’s Your Turn!
Take a walk through your stash of patterned paper to find a bright and cheery piece. There are so many varieties, I bet you have one that’s perfect. Then find some circle dies that will add some punch and a strip of ribbon and you’re off to the races! 🤗

How Many Will You Make?
This design is so easy and quick to make up – especially if you have scraps – you’ll want to make a bunch. And with so many different styles of paper, by my calculations, you could make two hundred and eighty-eight cards using this layout!
Wow that’s a lot!
Whether you only need one, a few or 288, this quick and cheerful card to make is one you’ll love to quickly get in the mail so someone special will beam a smile when they open it!
