Simple-to-make card...

 This card was super simple to create; the floral pattern die did all the work! I simply chose a deep rose-colored paper with a subtle pattern and cut it to the size of my card front. Then I placed my die at a diagonal across this piece and and ran it through my Big Shot.

The design is so intricate that I used spray adhesive to glue it down. Spray adhesive doesn't give you any time to maneuver your paper so you have to be vey sure of its placement before pressing it to the card front.

I've only added a stamped sentiment and a few sequins for embellishment. The inside is blank so I can write a personal note to the recipient.

See? Easy peasy, but I think it looks great.

I've been busily making Christmas cards to sell at the thrift store. I'll share a few of them with you in my next few posts.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

The intricate die makes a beautiful card. Easy enough to make quick cards but fancy enough it looks like you spent a long time. Anyone would treasure receiving your card.

Oh how pretty - and you say simple, it does not look simple. I usually keep my inside blank until I decide who I am going to send it to and for what occasion. Getting ready to do a "little" baking - not going to do a lot, friends and neighbors have been generous this year in cookies, bread, and candy. I'll make a couple of my usual standbys. We didn't have our cookie at church this year so I was in no hurry to bake.

That is a very pretty die, and I like your finished card. So nice of you to make so many cards for the thrift store. Can't wait to see some of them.
