Once again, we are taking turns hosting a quick and easy card kit that we make up on that day. Here is the card I designed for last week.
The cards have to be able to be assembled and made in about 20 minutes. That does not leave time for colouring an image so we usually keep them to diecuts, embellies,and sentiments. I wanted to try out my never before used Memory Box Small Circle Burst Die, so looked to Pinterest for some inspiration. I liked Melly Moo's card and here is my take on it. I did not have any stamps to make the green dots on the inside of the circular diecut hole, so I had to improvise.
I used a 5 inch square snippet of white card to diecut the Circle Burst. I stamped the Inkadinkadoo Best Wishes sentiment on the cut away circle shape and then adhered it to a slightly larger circle that I cut from a snippet of green card.I slid that under the first row of holes and then mounted that newly assembled square onto a larger snippet of pink card. I used pop dots to lift it forward and give some depth.
I added a glittery K & Co flower and tucked some Memory box leafy branches underneath. I didn't have enough of the green left for the branches so I just cut them from left over white card scraplings, and inked them with an Ingvild Bolme inker. How I love her inker product...never smears and dries in an instant! The little holder design fits my hands so well.
The wooden bird is from Dollarama...I so love that store! I bought a package of the birds thinking I would bleach the green dye off and take them back to woodgrain. I may still do that, but the original green stain looked fine with this card.
Since the front sentiment is ambiguous, I have not finished the inside of this card. It could be for a retirement, a birthday, or...
In spite of being quick and easy, I think it makes a nice card and plan to make up half a dozen more this week. Will have to use different flowers as they were in an assorted kit, each one a little different than the other. I have some Hello stamps that might fit the circle as well. Will try to show a desk shot of them all finished up on a later post.
I am submitting this card to the following challenges;
