Krafty Squares Quick & Easy Cards

Click HERE to join the current giveaway.

I was going through a small stash of cards that I have and I found some cards that I made back in May.  You can find out all about them by clicking here.  Though they are square and smaller than an A2 sized card, I think they are cute.  More importantly, they provided the perfect inspiration for today's cards.  I made 5 cards and they went together very quickly.


Here are the supplies and tools I used to get started:
Paper trimmer and Martha Stewart Scoreboard
Hero Arts "All Occasion Messages" stamp set
"Blossom Soup" 6X6 paper pad from Jillibean Soup
Kraft Cardstock (base)
Memnto Tuxedo Black ink
3 Girl JAM - Aqua Splash and Dress White
White - Sakura Gelly Roll pen
ATG

To begin: Cut an 8.5" X 11" piece of Kraft cardstock in half and score to form a 4.25" X 5.5" card base.  Cut 1.5" squares from several different papers.  Adhere them along the top and bottom of the card as shown above.


Using the Memento Tuxedo Black ink, stamp your sentiment in between the 2 rows of squares if desired.  You may also decide you would prefer to stamp your sentiment inside of the card instead.  Using your white pen, draw stitch marks around the outer edge of the card.


If desired, add a ribbon bow between the 2 rows.  I used 3 Girl JAM Aqua Splash and Dress White.  I secured the knot in the bow with a rolled glue dot to insure a secure placement.

I think this card would work well when you needed to mass produce a large number of cards quickly.  They are simple and yet remain pretty.  Thanks for stopping by today.  Remember to take some time to enjoy the little things.

I am entering this card in the 3 Girl JAM "Kraft with Ribbon" challenge. Come and play along.
