Fifteen Minutes or Less Cards

Hi everyone! I’m back with two super quick cards I created! I know if you have been following me for any length of time you know I am the keeper of all paper scraps from my projects and you also know that I generally have several unfinished projects laying around. Since I have Eileen Hull’s newest diecuts, Foilio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits, I thought I would use the flowers from the set to finish these cards. I also used a few others diecuts by Eileen that are retired and some that can still be purchased. This is what I had laying around in my craftroom waiting to be finished.

I started with the kraft and black diamond cardstock, it was a piece of 6″x6″ cardstock that I folded in half to create a 3″x6″ card base, which I had already used scraps of patterned cardstock and a tiny piece of a lace diecut to decorate the front. That’s where I stopped on that card because at the time I really wasn’t sure how I wanted to finish it? I cut out a label from Eileen’s Kitchen Labels Thinlits (retired) and added the Hello diecut that I had leftover from a previous project and adhered to the front of the card.

I cut out two of the leaf sprigs and two of the flowers from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits. I shaped the flowers with a Stylus, glued under the hello sentiment and added a flatback pearl to the center of the flower.

The second card I had cut from the Needle Book Diecut (retired). I folded it and added an assortment of patterned cardstock to the front. I had one of the “fringe” flowers (Sweet Treats for You Set Diecuts) leftover from a previous project and cut out several more flowers and leaf sprigs from the Folio Page Set, shaped and adhered to the front of the card.

Also from my stash I had this mini cupcake image that I added with the flowers for something fun.

Do you think you could make these cards in less than 15 minutes ? Or maybe even 10 minutes? Let me know in the comments below.
