DMC - Crikey that was quick!

I'm not usually good at quick cards - because I kind of like taking time over making a card, not hours and hours but I'd happily spend an hour playing about with ideas and putting a card together. But as the challenge is to make a quick card I figured if I was going to be quick I would be quick. This card from picking out bits to make it to putting it together took literally 10mins.


The papers are freebie ones from this months Crafts Beautiful, those were on my desk and already co-ordinated (tip #1 for quick cards find papers that are already co-ordinated!) the card size was dictated by a pink envelope I had that went with the paper. I tore out two squares of the papers, layered them up and cut the happy birthday bit out of another of the papers and used it as a greeting/boardery bit. The embellie is made from a plastic flower I had on my desk hanging around and I just added the glitter Thickers, those I'd just got through the post so those were hanging around my desk too. The buttons are out of my button sweetie jar, I just fished out ones that went with the papers. Glued it all together, bit of doodling around the edges and it's done! The slowest bit was getting those glitter Thickers off the sheet , I've not had those ones before they're a nightmare! It's annoying because the foam ones are a dream to use so I was assuming these would be the same but nope.

So anyway there we go super quick card. And like I said my top tip is defo find papers that match already and stick with them for picking out your embellies and you can't go wrong. :-)
