2-Minutes to Finish (2M2F) – Sweet Special Day

Jul 12, 2017 | Birthday Cards, Congratulations Cards | 9 comments

Welcome to the July Pals Blog Hop! We’ve got a real Pattern Party going on here! I’m featuring the Petal Party DSP stack for a sweet special day card.

All of today’s hoppers are featuring projects using their favorite Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper and coordinating embellishments. After all, color coordination is a Stampin’ Up! strength.

Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.


For the Pals Blog Hop, July 2017. Featuring, Better Together stamp set, Petal Party DSP, Glitter Enamel Dots. For more details and a video to make this card in 2-3 minutes, click through to the post. #pmretreat #stampinup #note #specialdaycard #handstamped

A lot of what I share here, and the cards I make for my classes usually have quite a few steps, and are often “wow” cards. BUT, there’s always a need for that quick and simple card that you can put together in just a few minutes, but that still looks clean and polished (and not rushed).

Today I have a new video series – 2 Minutes to Finish. The goal is to create a card in 2-3 minutes that has a nice, professional look, but that doesn’t take any time at all! Let’s check out today’s video!

How about that? Here’s some more tips to make this card a success!

  • The Petal Party DSP stack has 12 sheets with a corner floral design that would work perfect for this example.
  • Just swap out the sentiment and you’ll have a pile of different cards for all sorts of occasions
  • Not only can you swap out the sentiment, but change out the ribbon for a totally different, but just as easy look!
