Super Fast Cards!
Hello and happy New Year! I am so happy to be able to share another crafty little creation with you before my Christmas break comes to an end. Tomorrow, I will once again be waking to my alarm clock and heading back to school. Part of me is glad to be getting back to a routine, but most of me would really like to have a few more days to relax!
Over the weekend, I was attempting to clean and reorganize my crafting area to make creating a little bit easier to squeeze into my schedule. I managed to get a lot of things put in their proper places, but I have a whole basket of 'need to go through' that still needs a home. I also came across some ideas I had jotted down from things I had seen on pinterest. One was using the embossing as the focal point of the card. Well, I had more than enough embossing folders to try out, so cleaning was put on hold so I could make a few cards! I also used more of the kraft paper that has been setting on the table for who knows how long. The cards came together so easy that I managed to make some for different occasions-even Christmas!!
I ran the kraft layer through the embossing folder, then rubbed the white craft ink pad over the surface. A layer of kraft framed my sentiment strip and all of that went on the card base. Super easy and super fast!
I can't say I made a lot of progress on my organizing, but I do have a few more cards in my stash. Plus, I put away my supplies after I used them, so maybe this is a new way to motivate me to not only clean up, but also use my supplies!! Sounds good to me!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to be a little more active on here now that things are settling down from the holidays. Have a marvelous week!!
