Not only can you make this beautiful quick and easy handmade card in mere minutes, it’s got a cost savings secret you will LOVE!

What if we told you that you could make 24 of these stunners for about $2 each? TRUE! Our very own Kittie Carcciolo shared this knockout of a quick and easy handmade card on her blog and we just had to share it here. She used our Delightful Dahlia 6×6 Paper Pad and our Delightful Dahlia Die Set, which cuts out the dahlia and leaf elements from the 12 sheets in the pad adorned with nothing but these spectacular, beautiful, colorful blossoms.

You can get all of Kittie’s tips and tricks in her blog post but we wanted to share just a couple of things we love about this card. First, we just love the way Kittie used different thicknesses of dimensional adhesive – in this case foam tape – to build up all the different layers to create lots of textural depth and shadows.

Second, Kittie very very slightly shaped some of her leaves to create even more shadows and dimension and those tiny touches bring these gorgeous blooms even more to life.

Third, we can’t think of an easier or more cost effective way to make cards! The Paper Pad and coordinating die together are less than $30. Use a layered die set and sentiments you already have and you can make 24 cards for $1.25 each plus whatever card stock you use from your stash for the base and layers. Then, for each additional set of cards you make with an additional paper pad, the price per card drops to less then $0.35 (plus the card base and layers). And since the cards made with this beautiful theme can be used for just about any occasion, this is a fantastic deal!

No one will believe this is such a quick and easy handmade card and will be completely dazzled by how rich and detailed they are. A quick spin through your die cutting machine, a teeny bit of stamping and some sticking things down in layers and this card will be ready to go and no one will be the wiser that you didn’t spend hours stamping and fussy cutting!
