Quick Cards...

It should take less than 20 minutes to make this card and by changing the sentiment it could be used for a whole range of occasions.
1) Start with a card blank, apply double sided tape around the edges. 2) Remove the backing from the tape and carefully line up the corners of your card blank to the corners of the patterned paper and smooth in place. 3) Use a craft knife to carefully trim around the card, use the edges of the card blank as a guide. 4) Fix a large bloom in the centre of the card using double sided tape. 5) Punch a flower from patterned paper, ink and slightly curl the edges and fix a jewelled
brad in the centre. Use a foam dot to raise the small flower slightly.

6) Stamp a sentiment onto card stock ensuring there is a space between each letter, then trim around each individual letter and ink the edges.

7) Arrange the letters on your card and only when you are happy with their placement attach with glue.

You could also make this card as a birthday card, get well soon, thank you or a party invitation.
I'm really looking forward to seeing the cards that you make so please leave a link in the comments box.

Simple but effective! I like to make cars like this, using blooms I've bought for next to nothing from charity shops.
Thanks for sharing !

Those chipboard letters I came up with Beyond, He and Boy, those Qs could come in useful for a Ps & Qs page. Use your Q for scrapbook Queen?
