Today’s quick and easy card idea is endlessly versatile!
We love a good quick and easy card idea, especially one that is super versatile and can be used for any occasion. Jamie is sharing one today that we can see being the perfect jumping off point for any motif and any sentiment and we are loving her little touches. Let’s get into the making!
Jamie started by using our Quilted Stitch Pierced Cover die to cut a piece of white card stock. She then used dies from from our Nested Rectangle Stitch Die Set to cut a piece of gold glitter paper to create a frame and cut her pierced cover panel to fit inside her frame. She then adhered the two together. PRO TIP: You can certainly cut the gold glitter to a panel but when you cut the center out to make the frame, you get more mileage from your specialty papers.
Then Jamie stamped her sentiment from our Floral Embrace set in the center of her die cut element with VersaFine Onyx Black ink and then heat embossed it with clear powder
Next, stamp the sentiment from the Floral Embrace Set, in the center of the frame with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and emboss it with clear embossing powder. PRO TIP: Adding clear powder over a colored ink, especially dark ones, gives it gloss and more visual impact.
Then Jamie stamped the large flower from our Floral Embrace set twice. She stamped the first flower with Posey Color Fuse Ink and then sponged the edges with Scarlet Color Fuse Ink, both from Set #4. The second flower she stamped with Lavender Color Fuse Ink and then sponged the edges with Lavender Color Fuse Ink from Set#6. She then did the leaves similarly in Mist and Clover Color Fuse Inks from Set #10.
NOTE: This set is currently out of stock – it seems to FLY out of here – but it’s on order and you can click the button on the store site to be notified when it is back on the shelves.
Jamie then cut out her images and arranged them on her card front with each flower on an opposite corner. She adhered them with varying thicknesses of dimension foam tape to add some height, tucking her her leaves and adhering them with liquid glue flat to accentuate the depth.
She then adhered her die cut piece to a card sized panel of white card stock and then popped the whole thing onto a purple top folding card base.
All her tiny touches – the pierced background, the gold frame, the shaded flowers – come together on Jamie’s card so such sweet simplicity. Here is what she used to make this card:
You can use any textural background and any larger floral element on this basic design for a quick and easy card idea and always have something that is totally send worthy! Grab what Jamie used or shop your stash and use this idea forever!
