Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home Card

All this week I’m sharing simple cards using the Heart & Home Suite.

I decided to go with a monochromatic card with a pop of red for this months’ Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme “Love“.

Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home Simple Card

My card today starts off with Thick Basic White cardstock.

I then used the Scalloped Contours Dies and cut out a label in Basic White cardstock.
