10-Minute Cards


It's no secret that I have plenty of Project Life cards, though thankfully I've been able to split apart the core kits I've bought. I've always used them in a variety of ways, and now I can add card making to that list. I was amazed at how quickly these cards came together because I'm not a speedy paper crafter, often needing to move the elements around, and then around some more.


For the first card, I used cards from the Azure kit and a sheet from a Studio Calico 4"x6" paper pad. The scrap from the yellow card provided enough paper to punch a couple of butterflies, and then I wrapped and wound some thread for texture. I have sticker sheets that I struggle to use, but found they provided the perfect way to add a sentiment.


The second card was made with the Coral kit and a sheet from another SC 4"x6" paper pad. The simple embellishments are made up of a Freckled Fawn metal heart and washi tape, mist, and thread.

Simple, colorful greetings to hopefully brighten up someone's day!
