Card in a Hurry!

Sometimes you need a card in hurry!  You’ve forgotten it’s someone’s special day, or a friend really needs encouragement.  Whatever the situation, let me show you how to create a 15 min card!

I first chose my papers – I used Paper Rose Autumn Bouquet.  My collection is the 6 x 6 size.  Included on one of the sheets is a sheet of different sentiments that can be cut out.  I chose one of these sentiments for my card.


I chose one of the flowered border pieces of paper from the collection, a mossy green to layer behind it, a Kraft A2 size card base and my sentiment.  I first cut the green card stock to go on the card base.  The green was cut to 3 1/2″ x 5 1/2″.

I centered this lengthwise on my card base and adhered it.  I next added my flower layer that is 3″x 5 1/2″.

I centered my sentiment up on the top mid-way between the green card stock and the flowered paper and adhered it with foam tape.  I added some autumnal colored gems from Picket Fence Studio called Autumn Leaves.  And that finished my card!

We all seem to get caught sometimes!  I hope this inspires you to pick up some paper collections that have a variety of papers and cut aparts on hand to make quick and easy cards!
