All I have to do is dream, and this card just makes itself. I love it when that happens! It was “quick & easy” with minimal supplies, which you’ll find at the bottom of this post.

Chase Your Dreams

Not to deviate from the subject, but I have to tell you, I was singing “dream, dream, dream,” while making this card. Do you remember the Everly Brothers’ song, “All I Have To Do Is Dream?” It was recorded in 1958. Thanks to U-Tube, here they are singing their hit song, and you too can sing along.

Back to card making. I began by looking through my new Stampin’ Up sets for a circle. Suddenly, the detailed circle in the Chase Your Dreams die set jumped out at me. So, I cut three of these beautiful circles down the middle of Thick Whisper White cardstock.

Next, a selection of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (the lightest one) was adhered to the back, so it’s peeking through the cut-outs in the circles. Then, I adhered this to a Thick Whisper White card base. 

Are you wondering how I got the idea of three, dreamy, circles? Check out this week’s CAS(E) this sketch.

The word “dream” is another die in the Chase Your Dreams die set. Wanting it to blend, and be dream-like, I used the same Wood Textures DSP. The word has three layers of cardstock for thickness, giving dimension. And, that’s it for the card.

I decorated the envelope flap with the Simple Stripes embossing folder, so it’s ready to send.

Thanks for stopping by, and allowing me to reminisce a bit. Now, get your supplies to make this easy, dreamy card!
