While many of us love to add layer after layer of paper and embellishments to our projects, sometimes life just doesn't slow down enough to be able to devote a lot of time to crafting. Still, giving a handmade card over a store bought one is almost always preferred.
Ruby Rock-It understands how quickly life can move and offers a whole line of pre-cut, scored, embossed card bases with envelopes, called Imprints. Awesome, right? Such time-savers they are.
Here are the Imprints that I chose for today's cards:
If you're like me, you couldn't imagine tossing your scraps, and you've got quite an assortment of them in your stash just begging to be used on a project.
I pulled some scraps that I had saved after my last Kinda Krafty project and laid them out on my table.
I grabbed a couple of my favorite punches and punched out a handful of shapes from the scraps.
For my first card, I glued 7 of the punched butterflies directly onto the Imprints card base. I adhered the "Good Job" sentiment, which was cut from the Kinda Crafty Chatterbox cardstock, using a foam square for dimension. Then I pulled some pearls from a Bella! Bling Borderlines pack and glued one to each butterfly.
For my second card (hey! challenge yourself to make your cards in pairs or sets- you'll be glad to have the extra cards in your stash), I glued the larger butterfly directly to the Imprints card base, added a little pearl, and then used foam squares to adhere the smaller butterflies in a whimsical fashion. I added a sentiment again cut from the Chatterbox cardstock sheet and called it complete.
So quick and easy but still handmade!
