card making: simple 4th of July cards

Today I wanted to share a type of card you don’t often see from me: 2 minute cards. While I adore stamping, color mediums, detailed techniques… sometimes I have leftover die cuts or stickers and just want something quick.

So, I grabbed some white cardstock and set a few things down.

I did end up grabbing a rhinestone star and a bit of trim for one – but just really simple design wise + no fancy layers or anything. Directly onto a card and go.

If you’re looking for these die cuts¬† – has them (affiliate link used) they’re by Pink Paislee part of the Sweet Freedom line.¬† This just felt like the perfect cards to make for today.

I hope you have a wonderful day – and to those in the USA – happy 4th of July! We’ll be relaxing quietly here and prepping for some camping next week…

  14. Thank you as always! I really love these”quickies” because as I clean off my workspace I tend to have a pile of pieces, random pieces and I try to use everything! Actually I would love at some point a formulas class for using up the random pieces in productive ways…just a thought! Hugs!
