You will need:

  • 8 1/2×11
  • Basic White card stock that has been cut length wise to measure 4 1/2 x 11. Score in half at 5 1/2.
  • Designer Series Paper (Use any you have)Iused blue.
  • Buttons of coordinating color. (I used blue)
  • Scraps of Basic White cardstock
  • Night of Navy ink or any coordinating color of ink.
  • The smile stamp from The Daisy Lane stamp set.
  • And what ever sentiment you want to use inside card


I of course folded the base card in half. On the front I adhered three strips of blue designer paper  on white base of card. I allowed margins at top, bottom and in between blue strips. I placed a blue button on right hand side of each strip. I stamped the word “Smile” on a tag.

I felt I could use this card for a variety of occasions. It can also be adapted with any color scheme.
