Hello Stampin’ Friends,
Let me begin by saying “Thank You” for the get well comments and e-mails. Still not feeling up to par, but nothing makes me feel happy than to share one of my card creations with you.
We all have days when we’re not at the top of our game but have to make a card …. here’s my suggestion for you today. Project Life! A scrapbooking revolution… It helps busy people (so basically all of us) document life using photos and journaling in a quick, simple, and fabulous way.
BUT WAIT … We’re making cards! That’s what I love about project life, not only does it make scrapbooking easy, you can pull a card together in a matter of minutes! Let me show you …
I began with the “Everyday Adventure” Card Collection from Project Life. I then chose a couple pieces I liked. The background was made to fit a 4 x 6 photo sleeve so I just trimmed it down to 5-3/4″ … now it fits perfectly onto my card base of Basic Black, and the left over piece will go inside! No waste … gotta love that!
I wanted my greeting to be a bit smaller so I wouldn’t hide the background, so I trimmed that down to 3-1/2″ x 2-1/2″. To make it easy …. it’s a 1/4″ off all 4 sides 🙂
Because I wanted to bring the black color in from the base of my card, I cut a 3-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ piece of Basic Black cardstock. I didn’t want to mat the greeting, just give it a pop of black behind it to emphasize the Bermuda Bay color, which is our focal point.
Just for fun … I wrote the “there” in with the Journal Pen. If you don’t want to write something, you could leave it blank or stamp it with any number of our wonderful greeting sets. I finished it off by popping it up with our Stampin’ Dimensionals!
This card took me less than 5 minutes to put together … another 5 to choose from the many cute cards in the pack.
So simple, when your just not “feeling up to it” or you’re desperate for a card … and haven’t we all been there?! With just a few simple cuts and your favorite adhesive … your done! Problem solved.
Thank you for stopping back today!
Have a marvelous day ~
