Cards On Sunday - Quick, Easy, Clean & Simple

The card I wanted to share this week is simple in design and very easy to make but looks fab and is a great way to use up left over scraps and sticker embellishments.

This card is made from an old Basic Grey line "Wisteria" which was full of pretty pale lilacs, blues and greens.



Cut two square pieces out of one patterned paper and two squares the same size from another coordinating pattern. The size of your squares will be determined by the size of your card blank. You will want to leave 1/8th inch gap between the edge of the card and your patterned paper and a 1/8th inch gap between each paper square.

Ink the edges of your patterned paper squares.

It really does make a difference.

Honestly.

Give it a try...

Please?!

Arrange the squares on the card in a grid style leaving an equal gap between the pieces and the edge of the card. Start by lining it up along the spine, if necessary you can trim a little from the outer edges but obviously not from the spine!

Stamp a greeting in the lower right hand corner.

Finish off with a sticker in the centre overlapping all four squares. I also added a layered element to this card by adding a flower, raised on a pop dot and with a gem in the middle.

Below is another quick card I made with offcuts and scraps from the Wisteria line and a little strip of border stickers.

  1. Those cards are so pretty. Totally agree about the inked edges, especially on quite simple and effective designs like these.
