Welcome to Make In Minutes Monday Card! Believe it or not, you can make this card and matching envelope in mere minutes with just stamps, ink, and paper. Today, I'm using a stamp set that I originally overlooked from the 2020 Stampin' Seasonal (August-December) Catalog. It's called Ornamental Envelopes. As the week rolls along I'll demonstrate some more elaborate cards and envelopes made with the Ornamental Envelopes Bundle, but for today, let's make a super simple card.
Make In Minutes Ornamental Envelopes Card
Cut a 4-1/4" x 11" Thick Whisper White Card Base. Score at 5-1/2".
Using Mint Macaron Ink stamp the leaf swag (Ornamental Envelopes stamps) on both your card and envelope.
Next, stamp flowers as shown using Bumblebee Ink.
Finish your card stamping "I Can't Thank You Enough" (So Sentimental stamps) using Tuxedo Black Ink. Done!
See Card Supply List Below.

Yes, this is meant to be a holiday stamp set, but I think you find that it can be so much more.
Welcome to Make in Minutes Monday! Today, I'll show you how to make a Miss You Card in minutes. It's super simple the Plush Poinsettia and Plaid Tidings Designer Papers do most of the heavy lifting.
How to Make a Card In Minutes
Cut a 4-1/4" x 11" Thick Whisper White card base and score at 5-1/2".
Then cut two pieces of designer paper 4-3/4" x 3-1/2". I use Plush Poinsettia and Plaid Tidings paper. The Plaid Tidings paper has 48 sheets of yummy plaids in each package and the Plush Poinsettia all I can say is Wow! This flocked paper with its gorgeous designs is fairly transparent allowing the pretty plaid to peek through and dazzle us.
I stamped my Miss You sentiment with a stamp from the Blooms in Blossom stamp set and Blackberry Blis Ink onto Melon Mambo cardstock. Then, I simply trimmed around my sentiment.
My little heart house accent piece was cut with the Home Together Dies. That's it! Your card is complete!

The final step for making today's card is to punch a maple leaf, an oak leaf and an acorn from the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Paper using the Autumn Punch Pack. Adhere your punched leaves and acorn and you are done! I just love that the punches are sized to punch images from this gorgeous designer paper!
Make in Minutes Beautiful Autumn Card Directions
Cut Thick Very Vanilla Card Base 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", then score at 4-1/4". To make this card even easier purchase the Very Vanilla Notecards and Envelopes and skip the cutting and scoring. Note: Notecards are slightly smaller (5" x 3-1/2"), but they will work for making this card.
You have two options for stamping your "thank you" and "Have a beautiful day". You can simply stamp your sentiments with a clear block. This takes a bit more skill to line up your images and get an evenly stamped image every time. Your second option is to use the Stamparatus to stamp your sentiments. The Stamparatus stamp positioning tool helps you stamp perfect, crisp impressions every time. You can also use your Stamparatus for Hinge Stamping. Notice that I stamped the "thank you" 3 times and I only have to line up my stamp once. To stamp the second and third "thank you", I simply moved my stamp plate down to the next hinge and stamped. Watch the video below to learn Basic Stamping Techniques Using the Stamparatus.
The "Thank You" was stamped using Mint Macaron ink and the "Have a beautiful day" was stamped using Cajun Craze ink. I chose these two colors because they matched my Guilded Autumn Designer Paper.
