Hi crafty friends! How about a set of simple & easy cards for you today? Sometimes there’s just no time to create intricate or multi-step cards, so I thought it would be useful to share how you can still make them look nice in minutes.
These note cards are smaller in size, measuring only 4×4″ square. The main focus is the big layered flowers in the center. I used two cut files (#271164, #271166) here, but any shape would work. You could use hearts, geometric shapes, stars, etc. – as long as you create a nesting form of the image, you can easily reproduce these cards. The other tip is to alternate the colors of the layers to give it more interest and accentuate the layering effect. The gorgeous Auburn Lane collection has lots of patterns and colors that work really well for this.
For the first card, I used both A and B side of the same patterned paper. I opted for a dark background for the panel which I layered with more patterned paper and light pink colored cardstock. I distressed the edges before adhering it down, just to give it something extra. A puffy sticker sentiment and enamel dots finished the card.
The second card is exactly the same, I just used a different shape for the layered image and once again I alternated patterned papers. The only difference here is that I added some fussy cut leaves behind the flower and rub-on hearts around it. Same distressed edges and also layers of patterned paper to form the panel.
Card making doesn’t have to be difficult or complicated. Although I enjoy spending time creating cards that are a bit more special, I’m all for fast and easy techniques that come in handy when time is limited. Thank you for stopping by! Have a lovely day!
