5 Minutes or Less.. One quick card for you!

Sometimes you just need a really quick card, don’t you?  This card took much less than 5 minutes to create and features retired Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper.  The design is simple enough that any Designer Series Paper and color combo could easily be substituted to create a wonderful card quite quickly!

Cutting Directions:

Very Vanilla Card Stock 5 1/2” x 8 1/2” scored at 4 1/4” to create fold-over, 1 1/4” x 5 1/4” to punch and create scallop edge, and scrap for stamping and punching oval all sentiment.

DSP: 3 1/4” x 5 1/4”  Real Red:  1 1/4” x 5 1/4” to punch and create scallop edge ‘shadow’

3/4” Real Red Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon:  appx. 5 3/4”


  • Fold Very Vanilla Cardstock on scored line, use bone folder to crease.
  • Apply snail adhesive to reverse side of DSP… (a little in each corner, and a spot in the middle will do), affix to the top section of the fold over (be sure to position the crease at the top of the card)
  • use scallop edge punch to punch the very vanilla and real red narrow strips of cardstock.
  • Layer scalloped strips so the real red piece creates a shadow effect.
  • wrap 5 3/4” piece of grosgrain around the scalloped cardstock layer
  • affix to lower edge of card.
  • Stamp Oval All greeting with Real Red Classic Ink on scrap of Very Vanilla Cardstock
  • Punch out greeting with Scallop Edge Punch
  • Turn upside down and place two stampin’ dimensionals on the back of the greeting.  Press fingernail into paper of the dimensional, and it will easily be removed.
  • Position/affix on right lower edge of card.
  • Woo Hoo.. You’re done!!

I’ll be back tomorrow with another quick n easy, 5 minutes or less card for you!
