Our 5 Minute Monday card for today is definitely quick and easy, and can be created with a wide variation of designer papers.
( 2 variations below )
All links to products have been highlighted through the post for your convenience, or simply click on the pictures.
Just a few simple cuts of the designer series paper, a quick flip of 2 sections of the designer paper, add a quick & easy focal point and you have a great card!
I started with a 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 card base.
Scored at 4 1/4
The designer paper from the Brights 6x6 paper in the Highland Heather, cut at 4 x 5 1/4. This year has a new version, just as lovely.
Then I cut this paper vertically at 1 1/2, turned and cut again at 1 1/2. This will give you 4 sections of paper altogether.
Turn 2 of the sections over to the opposite side of the paper. The matching papers should be diagonal from each other.
Attach them to your card front leaving a tiny spacing between each.
Next, I used the Medium Daisy Punch and punched out 6 daisies in total. 3 for each flower.
Attach the daisies together to form the 3D flower.
Attach them in desired position on the card front using dimensionals.
I die cut a few leaf sections from the Willow Dies.
You can use any greenery die cuts you have.
Just tuck those around the daisies with some liquid glue.
I used Glossy Dots for the purple on the center of the flowers, and just added a small one to the card front to give me a group of three.
Go To Greetings is my Favorite Greeting stamp set at the moment! I used it to stamp "thinking of you" on a scrap of Basic White for the greeting, and just attached it on the bottom right corner of the card front.
Check out the Go to Greetings stamp set 👇
Perfect stamp set that gives us the most common greetings in so many different fonts.
It's without a doubt, my "go to" for greetings!
Of course we have have a few more examples of this card layout to show how versatile it can be with any focal point.
This card uses the Happy Forest Friends designer paper.
With the cute little bear from the Happier than Happy stamp set as the focal point. A simple Thanks from the same stamp set for the greeting.
This card used a simple black and white series of designer paper, paired with the Roses cut from the Hues of Happiness designer paper for the image. Again, using the "Go To Greetings" stamp set for the greeting.
