Q is for Quick

Welcome to my ABC Card Series! Throughout this series I’ll be sharing a variety of cards for every occasion from A to Z! Often I need a Quick card last minute before I head out the door! I have several card designs I use when I’m in this situation.  Here’s a quick & easy one to make for any occasion.

Stampin' Up! Quick & Easy corner fold card idea for any occasion - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Choose a piece of DSP and coordinating cardstock. Grab a sentiment stamp for the occasion and cut your paper to these measurements:

  • Card Base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
  • Whisper White Layer to stamp sentiment: 5 1/4 x 4
  • DSP Layer: 5 1/4 x 4  *Fold corner so it is below the sentiment and burnish with bone folder.

Now how easy is that?! Just adhere the layers and let the DSP shine. It showcases both sides of the DSP !  You can quickly add a punched flower or use the Circle Punches (or Layering Framelits) to cut an image from Designer Series Paper. Pop it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals and you’re done! I hope you will go through your stash and grab a piece of DSP to give this design a try!

Here’s what often happens at my house.  My husband, son, or daughter ask for a card they need at the last minute. Sound familiar?? Just last week (late in the evening) the night before my daughter flew to Las Vegas (with her Georgia Tech Bridge Club to compete in a tournament), she asked if I could make her some cards for 3 of her teammates who would be celebrating their birthday while in Vegas.  Of course I said yes! (I always say yes even if it means I won’t sleep that night! LOL) I am always thrilled that they want my handmade cards. (I just wish they gave me a little more notice.) For this occasion it was actually an easy project as I was thinking Las Vegas, Bridge Club, cards, 21…Oh yes! I had a quick & easy idea for that! I put her to work.  While she die cut, I stamped and assembled. Here’s the cards we made.

Great way to use an old deck of cards and she loved them! We actually made 5 cards in 20 minutes.  That has to be a new record for me! How long does it usually take you to make a card? Leave a comment below.  I’d love to hear from you!
