Here are some Really Fast Cards – with the Happy to Be Friends stamp set (C1605)…(and this set comes in French & Spanish!
You really can’t get any faster than these cards – unless maybe you just fold a piece of paper, draw a picture & write a sentiment (but they won’t look near as cute!)
This first card uses one of the pocket scrapbooking cards from the Hello Lovely paper packet, a bit of Blush Shimmer Ribbon, Gold Glitter Gems, the Gold Shimmer Brush, Happy to be Friends stamp set and Sorbet ink.
Trim ¾” from the bottom of the 4 X 6 pocket card. Adhere to the front of the card base, stamp the sentiment in the center. Add a bow towards the top and the Gold Glitter Gems below the sentiment. A bit of gold shimmer on the flowers finishes it all off.
The next card we have is great for using up scraps or zip strips. Add some gold foil tape, a square of white daisy, a square of fern and some Fern & sorbet inks.
Start by cutting 3 strips ¼ X 8 ½” – cut these in half (1/4 X 4 ¼”). Cut a single piece ½ X 4 1/4” – Next center the 1/2” strip (with the card in a horizontal position). Then add the 1/4” strips in pairs working out from the center. Next run 2 strips of the gold foil tape across the lower portion of the card. Stamp the sentiment on the White Daisy square, layer with the fern square – and layer on top of the strips.
And you are…. Done! What’s your go to for quick and easy cards?
