Hello everyone and a very Happy New Year to you all.
Can't believe this is my first post for 2013. Time flies when you're busy I guess.
I have a couple of easy cards to show you. These are made from some scraps I had in my scraps box.
They don't take a lot of work which comes in handy when you're pressed for time or making a card for someone whose Birthday you 'almost' forgot. (I won't tell if you don't. LOL)
I used cream cardstock for the base, then cut a slightly smaller mat in brown and attached a piece of chiffon ribbon before adhering it to the base. From my scraps, I selected the papers which matched, cut them into wide strips, used a Martha Stewart border punch for the edges inked them with a Bark Kaisercraft ink pad and then layered them to the front as shown.
Then cut another slightly smaller out of ivory cardstock, stamped the greeting onto it and attached that with pop dots.
The second card was made in a similar manner. I used black cardstock for the base this time and matted it in white. This time I didn't glue the mat to the base until after it had been decorated, mainly because I wasn't sure if I wanted ribbon on it or not.
I had some petal shapes in my stash so selected some complimenting colours, scrunched them up a little and glued them together to make the flower. I then glued a small pearl in the centre. And, as you've seen, I did decide to use a piece of ribbon so I was glad I hadn't glued anything to the base as yet.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
Take care and God Bless.
