Quick and Easy Cards

Do you have a drawer or box full of “stuff” that you don’t use, but you also don’t want to get rid of any of it either? I actually have several…one of which is a drawer of stickers, rub-ons and other embellishments.

     Thank goodness CAS-ual Fridays has a challenge to create a Clean and Simple (CAS) project that doesn’t use stamps—I’m assuming I can’t use any of my “digital” stamps either. Check out the challenge here.

    So I went through the above mentioned drawer to see what I could come up with. And, since it's also a CAS challenge, this is what I put together. Very basic compared to other cards I do, but cute nonetheless.

I had a lot of fun putting this card together.  It’s amazing how easy a card can be when all the elements are basically done for you. And, there was nothing to clean up--I really liked that part. Hmmm…I may have to open that drawer a little more often.

Items used:
  Die-Cuts: Spellbinders Lacey Circles and Classic Scalloped Circles Small
  Sentiment: Cloud9 Design Clear Epoxy Stickers
  Pastel Dots: heidi grace designs Borders Rub-ons
  Flower: Greenbrier (yes, it’s from Dollar Tree)
  Cardstock: White, Lilac and Metallic Violet

Helpful Hint:

SRM Stickers is sponsoring the above challenge. If you like to make cards but don't want to buy a slew of ink pads and stamps, check them out by clicking on their name. They have many sayings, images, etc., that "melt" into the paper (not like the vinyl letters we used to use years ago).


  1. Lovely card! I like all the various die cuts layered to one focal point.
