2 More Quick and Easy Card Directions, oh yeah, also a Winner is Announced!

Directions for Card 2

This card uses the exact same supplies as the previous post.
1. Cut lemon cardstock 5 1/4in x 4in and adhere centered on card base.
Card 2 Something Fierce
2. Cut dot paper 4 3/4in x 3 1/2in then cut on the diagonal. Adhere them centered on the lemon with space between them.
3. Cut a strip of raspberry cardstock 4 1/4in x 3/8in. Use the xxx border to die cut. Adhere 1 1/2in from the bottom.
4. Die cut 1 1/2 circle stamp hello and adhere on the strip. I did 1/4in from side and bottom of dot paper.
Just a note: I think next time I'll change the triangles to 2 different papers, I'm making several at a time anyways.

Directions for Card 3

On this card I used retired butterfly set and sentiment stamp. I like to use a little old mixed in when I can. You could use any shape you want or CTMH Butterfly Friendship Stamp and Thin Cuts is very similar. Otherwise this card uses the same supplies as card 1.
1. Cut raspberry cardstock 5 1/4in x 4in and adhere centered on card base.
2. Cut dot paper 5 1/2in x 2in and adhere 1/4in from left edge of raspberry.
3. Die cut 2 1/2 inch circle and stamp a sentiment. Adhere 1/4in from bottom of raspberry. Adhere your 2 shapes semi-random depending on their size and for this I used foam squares.

Hello Card

The holiday threw me off and I missed posting this on Monday. It's Monday in work week time.

It's time for the directions to make this quick and easy card!

I used:

CTMH Something Fierce Paper PacketCTMH January Stamp of the Month, 2019

Cut and Assemble:

You can probably just look at the card and know how to make it. For those that like detailed directions, here's what I did.
1. Cut 2in x 5 1/2in of both the dot paper and the blue wash paper.
2. Adhere the dots to the top of the card base with the base laid horizontal, then adhere the blue to the bottom.
3. Cut 1/2in x 5 1/2 in of the lemon cardstock and adhere over the gap between the 2 prints.
4. Cut a scallop border from the willow cardstock and adhere to the top of the lemon strip.
5. Cut a 2in x 3in raspberry cardstock and dovetail one end. Cut 1 3/4 x 2 3/4 from the pink stripe paper and dovetail it also. Adhere the pink stripe on the raspberry cardstock.
6. Use the 1 1/2in circle die to make a lemon circle.
7. Stamp hello and add stars on the circle. I also added a star in the bottom corner on the front and inside of the card.
8. Adhere circle to dovetail and adhere that to card. I used foam tape for that.

This card is easy to mass produce if you need a lot of them. The stamp set has a lot of sentiments so it would be easy to use this design for other occasions.

Please leave a comment and tell me if you like this card. Also share if you try the design. Come back Wednesday for directions to another quick and easy card and to find out who is the prize winner from this weekends Blog Hop.

Happy crafting, Karen
