Want a super quick and easy card? This is the one.  This card goes together so quick.  Would be easy to make several of these in no time at all!

For this card I used the Art Gallery Bundle by Stampin UP®.  I added in the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper, Golden Garden Acetate Paper, Fine Art Ribbon and some card stock!

One of the Golden Garden Acetate pieces overlays one of the Designer Series Papers exactly and that is what I used for this card!  I love the way it puts that Gold glimmer onto the Designer Series Paper it makes it look so elegant.

Cuts and Card Base - DSP = Designer Series Paper. 

Card Base - Pool Party - 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4

Layer 1 - Fine Art Floral DSP - 4 x 5 1/4 (Before you cut match up to Layer 2)

Layer 2 - Golden Garden Designer Acetate - 4 x 5 1/4 (make sure to pick the one that matches the DSP)

Layer 3 - Pool Party - 3 x 4

Layer 4 - Basic White - 4 x 5 1/4

Step by Step Instructions:

  1. Layer 1 - Set aside until you finish Layers 2 & 3. 
  2. Layer 2 - You will cut out words from Layer 3 before adhering this piece to Layer 1. 
  3. Layer 3 - Apply Adhesive sheets to back side then using the Floral Gallery Dies and the Word die cut out the words.  
  4. Now lay Layer 2 onto Layer 1 lining Up (DO NOT AHDERE YET).  Apply the words as shown.
  5. Now turn to back side of Layer 2 and apply Liquid glue behind the words to help hide the adhesive.  I also place Mini glue dots behind where the ribbon will lay.
  6. Adhere Layer 2 to Layer 1.
  7. Wrap ribbon around bottom about 3/8" from bottom edge. 
  8. Adhere both layers to card front as shown. 
  9. Tie a bow and using Mini glue dots adhere to the middle of the ribbon. 
  10. Layer 4 - Stamp flower image in lower right hand corner using Flirty Flamingo Ink. 
  11. Then using Black Memento ink stamp the sentiment.
  12. Adhere to the inside of the card!


Talk about easy and quick.  The best part is the Acetate paper really gives this card an amazing finish!  Looks so professional!  Hope you like the card!  Don't forget to leave me a comment below!  Remember just click on the name under mine on the list to move along the Blog Hop!
