Winter Olympics 2014

There is something about the Olympics that is so incredibly exciting.  From the opening ceremonies to closing, we love tuning in to see the events and meet the athletes.  NBC does a great job introducing the favorites to win -- telling us where they are from and their struggles and triumphs to get to the Olympics. You can't help but cheer for the athlete you were just introduced to! We spent the weekend at home with our family watching the Olympics and cheering for Team USA!

Today we are sharing a card made by a design team member, Jennifer Holmes, of PSA Essentials.  Do you create your own cards?  This one is actually quite simple.  

To create this card, Jennifer used: 
  • White, red, and striped card stock 
  • Small letter stamps to spell - Team USA  (found at Michael's or JoAnn's)
  • Cheerleader Stamp from Smirk Many Moods by PSA Essentials 
  • 1.5" hole punch, 1.75" hole punch 

Jennifer stamped the cheerleader stamp from Smirk Many Moods, an interchangeable Peel & Stick stamp set by PSA Essentials.  (You can use these stamps on an acrylic block or with the PSA Stamper.)  Then she colored it up to bring it to life.  She stamped "Team USA" very carefully in blue and red ink.  Next, she punched out with the 1.5" punch and framed it in the 1.75" punched out red card stock. 

After she adhered it to a 5 x 7 striped vertical card.  That's it!  You can apply these same directions and change up the stamps, colors, and occasions.  It really is that simple to make your own card. 

More Than Paper has recently added a "Crafter's Corner" and we are adding products all the time.  We currently have a large selection of twine, glassine/treat bags, inks, Stickers by the Dozen, Quick Card Stickers, and Monthly Memory Stickers
