10 Minute Cards

April 5, 2012

It has been far to long since I pulled out my card making supplies.  Over the weekend I had three occasions I need to just that for. I have noticed that I like to take a basic layout for a card design and stick with it for a while.  Sometimes I find a card I like and modify the design to fit my needs.  This one I came up with on my own.  It’s very simple, but all three cards turned out very cute.  The card base is 5 1/2 by 4 3/4 inches.  I stamped my sentiment in the bottom right hand corner.  I used a strip of 1 1/2 inch by 5 inch paper to embellish two of my cards and embellished one with some pre-printed tape.  The other embellishments vary by card. I am a Stampin’ up girl through and through.  So all my inks, stamps, paper, and ribbon are from them.  You will be able to tell when you read this and I talk in Stampin Up colors.  Honestly, I wish the rest of the world would too.
