Quick & Easy Card Layout!

Hi Friends! Today I'm sharing a very easy card layout, but it's one of my favourites. When I need to make a card in a hurry, or if I need to make a lot of cards in one swoop, I always seem to go to this layout. No matter what colours and stamps used, the cards look terrific! 

  • Whisper White: 8 ½” x 5 ½” , ½” x 4 ¼”
  • Petal Pink: 5 ¼” x 1 ¼”
  • Crumb Cake: 5 ¼” x 1 ¼”
  • Balmy Blue: 5 ¼” x 1 ¼”

  1. Fold 8 ½” x 5 ½” Whisper White card stock to create base.
  2. Ink coral image with Petal Pink and stamp randomly over Petal Pink card stock.
  3. Ink sandollar image with Crumb Cake and stamp randomly over Crumb Cake card stock.
  4. Ink seahorse image with Balmy Blue and stamp randomly over Balmy Blue card stock.
  5. Glue stamped card stock strips onto front of card, leaving a slight gap in between each piece.
  6. Cut a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock that measures 4 1/4" x 1" and stamp sentiment with Crumb Cake ink. Adhere to the front of card.
This is the design that I used for last night's Mystery Stamping Hour too - which was a TON of fun! Thanks to everyone who joined in - I hope you had a great time and I am already looking forward to our next "Mystery Stamping Hour"! 

Here are a couple more samples, using the same card layout:

For this card, I used the "Sailing Home" stamp set, Balmy Blue ink pad and card stock, as well as the 1 1/2" circle punch for the sentiment.

Colours used were Crumb Cake, Petal Pink and Old Olive. I used the beautiful new "Ornate Style" stamp set for the background. The sentiment is from the "Country Home" stamp set, which I cut using the Everyday Label Punch.
