Okay, on to today's cards. These are SUPER simple cards featuring the Spring Fever Simply Scrappin' kit in the Occasions Mini.
What did I tell you? Super simple, right? But fun and something I'd be happy to receive. What about you?
I started with my Daffodil Delight card base. I trimmed about a 1/2" off one side and then used my Scallop Trim Border punch on that shortened side. I then backed it with a piece of Whisper White. The banner is one of the border stickers from the kit - cut down to fit. I dressed it up with some of the smallest sized Paper Daisies and a Basic Pearl Jewel accent. To colour the paper daisies (they come in white only) I simply placed them on my ink pad (I think I used Blushing Bride but I can't remember now - oops!) and used my tweezers to push them into the pad until they were saturated with colour. Allow them to dry thoroughly before trying to glue them to the card OR the pearls to them!!
A simple sentiment (this one is from my absolute favourite stamp set from Sale-a-Bration - Elementary Elegance) stamped in Chocolate chip and your card is finished.
Next up, an Easter inspired card.
I started with a base of Daffodil Delight again but this time I made a 5" square card. I layered a piece of the patterned paper from the Spring Fever Simply Scrappin' kit over top. Then a 3" circle of the Melon Mambo textured card stock from the kit which I cut out using my 3" Circle Originals Die and my Big Shot. The rest of the card is made up of various stickers from the kit simply layered on top of each other in a pleasing manner.
The middle one I popped up with Dimensionals for some added interest.
There you are. Two cards which took me probably 15 minutes to make ... total!! Sometimes it's not so much the level of detail or the amount of product you put onto the card but the act of actually sending or giving a card that matters. So having an arsenal of quick and easy cards to pull out when the occasion calls for it is priceless!
