Smile Handmade Card

This smiles card was a fun card to make. Of course, this is no news to you though because every card is fun to make.


The yellow cardstock is from StampinUp! that was purchased years ago. The thickness of StampinUp! paper makes a super sturdy card.

Polka dot cardstock was layered on top of the plain cardstock. At the bottom of the card, a striped gray cardstock from DCWV pastel patterns mat stack was used.

Random cardstock was used for the flower.

Pin Me!

StampinUp! has a stamp collection called Colorful Seasons. I used this for the salutation. But actually only the word smile was used instead of the whole salutation of “You Make Me Smile”. Gray ink was used. A label punch cut out the label for the smiles card.

Yellow gems were placed on the label with the salutation Smile. They were also put on the four corners of the striped gray paper. A light yellow gem was used for the center of the flower.

Inside of the Card

The message was written out using the Cricut Explore Air. I designed it in Cricut Design Space with Cricut's Font Adobe Devanegar.

By using the Cricut Explore Air and Design Space, I was able to use the Candy Corn Cricut pen to write out the message on light gray cardstock. The font was from Cricut Design Space called Adobe Devanegar. It was attached to the inside of the card.

Deep Red makes a stamp called Daises This was used for the flowers. The ink used was Memento black and colored with Prismacolor pencils. Then they were fussy cut out to give a more 3D effect.

Matching Envelope

With the card comes a matching envelope.
