Quick Cards Tutorial

Good day my dear ones!
Making cards and any paper project is such a joy to my life especially if I have the opportunity to share it. This month (as usual) I was looking for ideas to make cards (in a hurry!). So after making 10 cards as quick as I could I ended up with these and decided to share a short tutorial. It doesn't matter how much I like to make cards that take me forever, lol! The ones you just can't stop adding embellishments...I always need cards I can make quickly and give away with a bit of my heart in it. This month I made 10 of these and sent them to 10 wonderful people in my life.
I know many wonderful people, if I start with 10 at a time maybe someday they will all receive a card from me.

Ready, set, go!! Make 10 cards....I divided my steps in 10 minutes here and there until all completed. I have little ones so I've learned to use my time wisely and make projects a little bit at a time.

Materials
Cardstock (Very Vanilla)
Designer Series Paper of your choice
Big Shot and Elegant Bird Bigz Die (or die cut of choice)
Embossing Folder (Vintage Wallpaper)
Adhesive of choice (2-way glue pen, Stampin dimensionals)
Sentiment of choice (Friendly Phrases)
Ink of choice (SU Early Expresso)
Punch of choice (SU Extra-Large Oval)
Jewels (SU Rhinestones Basics Jewels)
 

Step 1: Die Cut your Elegant birds out of your preferred designer series paper.
With the Big Shot I cut several at the sam time.
Step 2: Cut your CS to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and fold in half as shown.

Step 3: Glue your birds to the front of your cards.

Step 4: Emboss the front of the card with your EF of choice.


Step 5: Stamp your sentiment of choice 10 times in a coordinating piece of CS and punch.
(optional) I also punch extra ovals from a different color of CS to mat my sentiment.

Step 6: Glue your ovals mats to the sentiment as shown.

Step 7: Adhere your sentiment with stampin dimensionals
for added interest and accent with a bit of bling (rhinestones).
Place in cute envelopes and share!
