Quick and Easy Dream Big Card

Who doesn’t love to make a quick and easy card now and then? As much as I LOVE to create multilayered, super-embellished, texture-rich cards, I must admit that sometimes a card, like this Quick and Easy Dream Big card, is just what the doctor ordered. It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

This week the talented Anne Marie is hosting our monthly color challenge. What an awesome challenge she has for us: Black, White and a “Pop” of color! Don’t you love it! I am so excited to see what YOU create this week.

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

If you haven’t discovered by now, Memories & More cards are one of the best things to have in your “I Need A Card Quick” First Aid Kit! I am a little embarrassed to confess that today’s card was created in a matter of minutes. However, it still has many of the design features I LOVE in a card. The Crosshatch embossing folder provides texture. It has layers.  (Don’t you adore the Perennial Postage die cut?)  And for good measure, it is embellished with a bow and rhinestones. It doesn’t get any easier!

  1. I love that you featured the Memories and More card on your card, Ann! They are so beautiful and I love how your card came together so quickly and looks like a million bucks. The little rhinestones are the prefect touch. Thanks for rocking my challenge this week!

  2. Joanne James - The Crafty Owl

    I don’t think that you should be embarrassed Ann – Memories & More cards are so useful and I love that they make great quick cards, that as you’ve shown here with a few extra touches can be quickly upscaled too. Loving those butterflies against the black and white too!

  3. Ann, those butterflies are the perfect pop of color and I love the way you used the gingham ribbon to add just another layer of fabulous texture. It was -35 in Rochester… oh.. yeah… and I didn’t have to deal with it 🙂

  4. What an easy way to make a stellar card! Love those brightly colored butterflies…especially since we are looking at an all-white landscape today (finally!)!! Very pretty for sure.

  5. That is a very happy card – I like that!

  6. Such a fun, bright card!! I love the Memories and More cards! I don’t have this pack yet but it is on the list. I cannot image living in -21 weather. Hope you all bundle up on potty walks!!

  7. Cute card! I’m dreaming of warmer weather! It’s -21. The wind has died down to 10 mph.
    Nueve would need a fur parka to go out.
