Hello friends, it is Teresa today sharing a quick and easy card with you. I must confess that I love creating clean and simple cards but I find the “quick” part a bit of a challenge. I truly enjoy the process of creating and tend to get lost in my little world of mismatched pieces, papers, stamps, dies and embellishments. With that being said, my leftover box is the first place I reach when I need a card quickly.
For today’s card, I settled on a bright fuchsia bloom quickly (grin), some mismatched leaves, and a white plain tag die cut. What I love most about pulling together a card like this is that the leaves and flower are not from the same set or same company. This makes for an interesting look.
I reached for a polka-dotted stencil and added white embossing paste to my card base without worry of it being perfect which I think adds to the personality of my card. I adhered the flower and leaves to the tag, added glitter glue to the flower, a white twine bow, and then popped it up on my card base. The sentiment is a sticker which helps to make the process simple and easy.
I hope my process of creating a quick card helps you the next time you need a card in a hurry.
