Thanks A Bunch


Do you ever make 10 minutes cards?  It's a fun process and I've got to admit it's been too long since I made such quick cards.  Want to play along?  It's the June Flourishes Release Week Challenge and details can be found here.

I found a piece of patterned paper which I had already cut the sides with a chevron die.  It was perfect, I trimmed the length to fit my standard sized card, and stamped the flowers from Flourishes "With Gratitude" set.  The stamped image looked sort of flat, and so I added some colours with Prismacolor pencils to bring out the flowers.  No fancy shading, just really quick bits of colouring.  I punched some holes along the edges of the patterned paper using a screwpunch, and adhered the patterned paper to a piece of embossed cardstock.  The sentiment piece was a section of the patterned paper which I had trimmed off.  To finish off the card, I added a little button with twine, and the card is done!

Thanks for visiting today.

This is so sweet Kary - such a quick card and yet it looks like a million dollars.

Very pretty! I like that you stamped on the dp itself and fun designed edge. Thanks for playing in Flourisehs Gimme 10 challenge this week.

Your card looks so sophisticated Kary! I love the lacy embossed half, and all the color and design on the opposite half! Beautiful design and balance!

I'm not sure I can make anything in ten minutes! :D The subtly-coloured flowers on the patterned paper are beautiful.

If this card is done in ten minutes, it is beautifully done.
