5 minute card

Here's a super fast card idea for when you need to:
a) get a card made quick!
b) use up some scraps of paper
c) feel like you did something with your crafty time. Sometimes, that's just the way it is. :)

First, gather your materials. You will need:
-patterned paper
-gem or pearl

Minute 1
Cut your cardstock to the size you want your card. I cut my card stock to 8-1/2 inches x 5-1/2 inches. Fold in half to make card.

Minute 2
Punch out your patterned paper. I used a square punch , then rounded two opposite corners with a corner rounder punch. Cut additional strip of patterned paper.

Minute 3
Stamp sentiment on card.

Minute 4
Adhere the punched papers.

Minute 5
Adhere paper strip & pearl.


Have you done any super fast projects lately? I have to admit, I'm not into long, really detailed projects. Quick & simple are my favourite!

I'm off to the semi annual flea market tomorrow!! I'm super pumped!! Look how many exclamation points I'm using! :)

Happy Friday! 
Enjoy your weekend! (more exclamation points... sheesh, talk about overkill.)

  1. I've already 'scraplifted' from this card!  Love it! You must have used the big corner rounder punch....

  2. I love your blog.  Just sayin'.
