So here are my "Quick Cards". I call these "Cheater Cards" because I used images from a Melissa Frances 12x12 page of
vintage Christmas advertising labels I had been hoarding for about two years. I saw the cute tag that Darlene used on one of her projects and thought this would be a perfect time to break that hoarding habit! Since Jennifer's challenge was to make a quick set of cards, these were perfect. Once I got the basic design, I just made an assembly line and put them all together! They all use the same background stamp (Leaves Backgrounder #3, from CHF) on the same card stock (Kraft), same color combos (Bravo Burgundy, Always Artichoke and Creamy Caramel), same ink and same sentiment set (Flourishes' Holiday Greetings). I added some lace & ribbon from my stash as well as embellished each design with a Gelly Roll pen. Now all I have to do is add an inside sentiment! (If you'd like to get a better view, click on the photo for a close-up). I hope this inspires you to make some quick cards too!
Thanks for visiting! Remember--tomorrow is Color Throwdown Challenge, AND I will be offering some blog candy to celebrate my 50,000 hits! BE THERE!
