Heather H.’s Quick & Easy Card Ideas
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Good morning! Heather H. here this morning to share a few quick 10-minute or less cards that I made the other day! When making a card that is quick and easy, I love to make multiples of them—especially when they work perfectly for a card that is often needed, such as a birthday, thank you, or in this case, encouragement!

Once you have a layout you like, it is easy to make a few, and change the look up slightly. For these, I started with a sentiment I loved, and added some florals around the outside to highlight the focal point of the sentiment.

I love the sentiment building options in Papertrey Ink’s Inspired: Hope Mini Stamp set; there are so many possibilities. I stamped them simple in black on my cardstock, and left them lined up on my Mini MISTI to use again for my other cards. I then layered the florals from Fresh Bouquet around it. While there are more options for layering, I chose to stick with just the outline and one color to fill in each image. These worked SOOO easily together, which is part of why I was able to create these quickly.

For the first card, I used a stitched rectangle die to cut the panel, then mounted it on a colored card base. The rest of the cards I stamped directly on a top-folded card base to make them one layered. I made two more of the white version, and then did one on a kraft paper card base. I love the variety you can get this way—same exact ink colors and a totally different feel and look to the same card.

Thanks so much for dropping by today! Have a wonderful day!

Heather
