Quick and Easy Cards!

What's better than making a card that is so quick and easy your coffee will still be hot when you're finished? And will be playing along with Watercolor Wednesday's Anything Goes challenge!

Two cards!

That's right, friends! Two quick and easy cards! Shelli Gardner, Stampin' Up's CEO,  inspired this easy and beautiful project.

Right: Simple card
Left: Slightly more embellished

Of course, you can always take more time on your project to make it more complex, but when you need a fast project that will look great no matter how simple, this is a great idea!

I used the new Botanical Garden DSP and cut 2 panels at 4 x 5 1/4, then diagonally down the center of each. Next, you flip a panel between the 2 cards to have 2 different DSP triangles on each. What won't work is only cutting one panel diagonally and then flipping the DSP, you'll need 2 otherwise they won't piece back like they are supposed to. It blew my mind for a little bit before I cut the second sheet. (It was a duh moment on my part.) After that is all sorted out, then you can embellish. Again, you can keep it simple or add a little more for that extra 'wow'!

Don't you just LOVE the Botanical Gardens set? It is just SO pretty. And the dies....OMG! Right!? haha.
