In keeping with the Melon Mambo theme of the other two Strength & Hope cards, here is a very simple card that features the new postage stamp punch ($15.95). The "H hope" stamp fits very nicely inside, as do all the stamps from the Pretty Postage stamp set ($8.95 for clear mount, $11.95 for wood mount) on page 66 of the current Idea Book & Catalog.
Three quick stamps of the H in Pretty in Pink then one in Melon Mambo and then all you have to do is punch them out and adhere them to the Basic Gray cardstock. I popped the Melon Mambo one off using a dimensional to give it added emphasis.
Mounting the layer onto a Melon Mambo layer, adding a Whisper White taffeta ribbon and mounting on a Pretty in Pink card finished the card. Adding up the time it takes to complete this card, I'd say it can be done in 5 minutes or less, including cutting the cardstock. Maybe even three!
I've shown my Strength & Hope cards in pink variations because it's a set that benefits breast cancer research and because I have three friends who are breast cancer survivors. But you could easily change the color to give a card to someone undergoing treatment for another kind of cancer or to someone going through some difficult circumstances. A card in the mail really can make someone feel better...and isn't that the goal?!
