simply, congratulations

Hi everyone,

Ever needed a last-minute card and wished you had something in your stash you could adapt for a special occasion or theme? Here's a trick: look at your left-over stash and find a group of coordinating die-cuts, pattern paper or any other like products and make it your goal to produce as many cards as possible with them. Try to keep those cards as generic as possible and when you're done put them in your stash. Then, when that last-minute request occurs you'll be ready!

That's exactly what this card is all about.

This is a very simple card but it'll work for either a man or a woman or even a teenager! I can see this being adapted for a graduation, retirement, promotion, new home, new car, etc... And by keeping the embellishments sober (no bling, no flower),  it's gender neutral.

The die-cuts are from a retired Stampin' Up! kit I had in my stash. I quite like these little asymmetrical squares. It gives this plain card a little whimsy. Check out what you have in your stash and get to it!

Have a nice stampin' day !!!
