I have a quick post for you! Ok, so nothing is ever too quick with me, but this one has to be! :D
First of all I want to make sure everyone knows about the Design Team Call for Paper Makeup Stamps! The team and I are so excited to put out this call to add to our family!
We are looking for a some Full Time Paper Makeup Artists as well as some guest designer spots.
Check out THIS POST to read all about the call!
Next I want to show you a very easy to make 3 minute card!
This was created for a Make N Take at Funkie Munkie Scraps and i hadnt had a chance to show
it here on my blog yet.
For Make n Take night, the ladies paid $5 and got to do 5 crafts. We we didnt want to time or product on any 1 project. This idea is also great to keep in mind when you are mass producing cards!
Here is my 3 minute card...
I keep everything simple and to get the most out of the 12x12 sheet of patterned paper, i
cut the 12x12 paper into 4x12 inch strips. Then i cut down the strips to create 4 x 5.25 rectangles. This gave me 6 card fronts from 1 sheet of 12x12 paper.
Next came the sentiment. I let each cropper stamp the sentiment on some white neenah cardstock and then we punched it out using one of the Marvy Giga punches. Um...i think i need those at home. Man they were so fast to use! The bonus of using a punch is that you dont have to worry about stamping the sentiment straight. :D
The stamp used one of the sentiments from the new Faith, Hope, Love set
Now i do like a lot of layers on a card, but in the case of less is more, i like to still to do something to help the layers I do have stand out. So i sponged all the edges with a matching ink color (in this case, rose red from Stampin Up) :)
To add a little embellishment to the card we used some stripped grosgrain ribbon and a few pearls from Kaisercraft.
And that's my 3 minute card!
Have a wonderful day everyone!
