I’m sharing three simple handmade cards today all using the same card layout, also known as a card sketch. This one sketch, paired with different stamp sets and designer papers, will change the look on every greeting card layout you create!

While this greeting card layout may seem complicated it’s not. One piece of cardstock is cut at any angle and adhered to the card base using Dimensionals.

Greeting Card Layout – Idea #1

The new Sweet Ice Cream Bundle (stamp set + coordinating punch) create yummy cards and scrapbook pages. The Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch punches out both the cone and the scoop. Create a template and keep it with your stamp case for easy alignment. All the tips are shared in today’s video!

This greeting card layout will melt your heart with sweet ice cream cone in hues of blues and greens

Look at the texture in these photopolymer stamps! Add stamped sprinkles or sequins to any color/flavor of your choice. The coordinating Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper is packed with color and some of the images fit the punch, too.

I love the punches ice cream and cone on this greeting card layout

Greeting Card Layout – Idea #2

The Kangaroo & Company Bundle has a die that creates a slit in the kangaroo pouch to hold a secret message. There’s a tab die that allows you to add hearts, flowers and gift packages.

What does this greeting card layout need? A die cut Kangaroo with hearts flowing from her pouch

I colored the image using the Stampin’ Blends alcohol-based markers and used a mixture of sequins and rhinestones for some shimmer. It’s a “love” card like no other!

The 'love you much' greeting on this card is perfect for baby card or Valentine's Day card

Greeting Card Layout – Idea #3

Wondering how this popular shark ‘theme’ text can apply to your handmade cards? Watch the video to see the inside message!

This adorable bundle includes dies that accessorize the shark to make it masculine or feminine. And don’t forget the baby shark! These images will be a hit at birthday parties and baby showers!

I took this greeting card layout and made a shark card perfect for any kid or kid-at-heart!

No coloring needed! The solid coordinating images allow you to fill the shark’s body with ease. Photopolymer stamps are clearing insuring perfect alignment!
