Hi Stampers. Happy PPA day. Here I am the night before the post goes live rushing to get my card made, the PPA blog post up, and my blog post too. Just call me “Last Minute Lisa”… I threw this card together so fast, it was almost funny. I made the card and took the photo and thought to myself, “I really should spend more time on this” and then I stopped my self and thought. Sometimes a minute is all we have. I show new and exciting techniques all the time. Those are fun, too. But, sometimes you are just in a hurry ready to rush out the door and you need a quick card. This one fits the bill perfectly!
I have to confess, I already had the card base cut and I had the sentiment cut and layered from some other cards I was making in bulk on Saturday. These are the cards I was working on Saturday so you get the idea of what I had lying around. (Note: I will be doing a post on cards like those later.)
Anyway, back to today’s card… I grabbed the card base I already had cut and folded (11″ x 4.25″ scored at 5.5″), reached into my stash for a piece of basic grey card stock it was already 2.5″ wide and I just cut the length to 5.5″. I wrapped reached for my Whisper White organza ribbon and cut a piece approximately 6.5″ long, wrapped it around the card stock and adhered it to the card base. I picked up the Oh Happy Day circle I already had done and popped a few dimensionals on it pressed that to my card and it was done. (Note: The Oh, Happy Day stamp from Starburst Sayings was stamped onto Whisper White card stock using Strawberry Slush ink then cut out with the matching strarburst framelit. A circle framelit was used to cut out a circle of Strawberry Slush card stock just slightly larger than the starburst framelit to layer behind it.)
I tell ya, it may have been a record. Sure, given a little more time and thought, I could jazz it up. But, hey for a quick and easy card – I kinda like how it came out.
