Finding yourself in a time crunch for a card? Don’t panic! We’ve got you covered with a quick card idea that is perfect for last-minute crafting.
The beauty of this card design is its simplicity and versatility. You can easily mass produce a stack of cards in a short amount of time. Whether you need a birthday card, a thank-you note, or a congratulations card, you’ll always be prepared with these quick and elegant creations. These first cards are made with the One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Series Paper and the Horse and Sleigh Bundle.
The Adhesive Backed Snowflakes are the only embellishment used.
There is space between the three strips of Designer Series Paper for the sentiment. I love the sentiment “Sending warmth your way” but these cards could easily be sympathy cards, birthday cards and more. Great for masculine cards too.
Isn’t this One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Series Paper stunning? Summer is when I like to make “winter” cards. When the real winter comes, I’m ready for it be over – lol!
This could be called a Scrap Card too – since all you need is a 3″ x 3″ piece of Designer Series Paper. I like to gather an assortment and then have fun mixing and matching the other colors of cardstock.
Grab some 3″ squares of Designer Series Paper and cardstock, and let’s get started!
Supplies to Make an Easy Card Layout
Take any 3″ square of Designer Series Paper and cut it into three 1″ strips.
Attach this to the basic white cardstock leaving room for your sentiment.
After adding your sentiment, layer this on the colored cardstock and then on the card front.
How easy is that?
6 x 6 One Sheet Wonder
This is a great layout for a 6″ x 6″ One Sheet Wonder. Cut one piece into four 3″ squares and you will be making four cards in no time! These cards were created with the Masterfully Made Designer Series Paper and Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst cardstock. The sentiment is from the Super Cool stamp set.
Cut any of your 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Papers into 6″ x 6″ and use for this.
More Card Samples with This Simple Layout
This birthday card is gorgeous in blue using the Countryside Inn Designer Series Paper with Night of Navy and Boho Blue cardstock. The sentiment if from the Beautiful Balloons stamp set. I plan to make a bunch of these to have on hand.
This “You’ve got the biggest heart” sentiment from the Happy Labels stamp set is perfect for this Delightfully Eclectic Designer Series Paper with all the hearts. (Tim just loves this sentiment because it reminds him of the movie – “A Man Called Otto”. Did you see it? We loved it.)
