Lately I’ve needed cards for various reasons and have found myself scrambling to make something. This is a little ridiculous when you look at the amount of card making stuff I have, enough stuff that if I were to never buy anything but adhesive for the next 3 years I would not run out of supplies.
So I went through my paper stash and started with a basic layout, cutting the background paper to 4 x 5 1/4, and a white and coordinated card stock in small rectangles. I cut a bunch of these pieces so I could make a few card as time presented itself.
This is my basic layout, nothing really complex or earth shattering but I figured it was a good foundation that I could add a few bits too to jazz them up.
For me, this simplifies the process and allows me to add more detail as I want. For some cards, I trimmed the focal pieces down. I also tried to create 2 of the same card.
Here’s what I created with this basic layout.
