Good day crafty friends! Design Team Member Jana stopping in to share a quick and easy card tutorial with you all today. I don’t know about you, but there are numerous times when I need to create a quick card at the last minute and I am usually scrambling to do so. I also don’t necessarily have time to dig out my stamps and get inky either. Well the good news is that I can now create just about any card I need with the help of the newly released “Crafters Essentials I Dies” by Kat Scrappiness. These dies have been a life saver recently and I am super excited to show you just one of the quick cards that I have whipped up using it.
To begin, I created my card base using 110lb. ReCollections White Cardstock. My card base is an A2 sized card which measures 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″. I then die cut some patterned cardstock from the ReCollections “Mermazing” Paper Book that I have as my card mat using the largest die from the Stitched Scalloped Rectagle Dies by Kat Scrappiness.
I then die cut the above piece out of some plain textured cardstock, again from the ReCollections “Mermazing” Paper Book using one of the dies from the Crafters Essentials I Dies by Kat Scrappiness.
Using some of the “cut aparts” in the ReCollections “Magic Hour” 6X6 Paper Pad, I cut out the sentiment I wanted to add to the bottom of my die cut along with another piece that I wanted to adhere to the middle of the Crafter Essential Die as my focal point. I adhered everything onto my card base using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. And of course, my card would not be complete without some beautiful sequins! I used a few sequins from the “Fluffy Clouds” Sequin Mix and pulled out some green sequins from the “Grandma’s Garden” Sequin Mix as it matched perfectly with the green color in the cardstock that I wanted to pull out.
And there you have it….. a completed card in pretty much less than ten minutes….Perfect!!! I hope that this quick and simple tutorial will help you out when you might be in a pinch for creating a card at the last minute. I have listed all of the products I used in this tutorial below.
