Some quick cards...

Here are two more "quick" cards from the April card class at the Scrapbook Factory Shop - and both can be made in around ten minutes...

"Thoughtful..."



CS is Bazzil White Linen, layered with brown hued scrapbooking paper, then overlaid with blue CS, which has been embossed with ProvoCraft's Floral Fantasy embossing folder, to halfway up the card. The edges of the blue cs have been coloured using the Brilliance Cocoa Bean ink, as was the Hero Arts stamp. I had fun making the ink "bleed" into the blue layer. A brown ribbon is added to separate the two halves.

"Adorable..."



CS is Bazzil White Linen, layered with black CS, the overlaid with white CS, which is also embossed to halfway up the card. This time I used the Divine Swirls embossing folder. Brilliance Silver ink is used to edge the embossed layer. Black ribbon separates the embossing from the stamped Hero Arts word.

Both cards are A6 in size.
