Who doesn’t want to make a really cute card in 5 minutes???? Well that is exactly what I set out to do when I designed this card. I used Cryogen White Text weight and created the pattern twice…one for the outside and one for the inside of the card. As most know I am definitely a Clean and Simple designer and this design is about as clean and simple as you can get :).
All I did was take one of my favorite stamp sets…Deep Red Grunge Border stamp set and stamped one of the larger borders in several different colored Momento Luxe inks and then stamped some of the bare spots with one of the smaller Grunge Border stamps also with various colors of the Momento Luxe inks. The longest time any of this took was drying the Luxe ink since it is a mixed media ink which is formulated to dry slower.
Then I simply add white twine, cut out the Happy Birthday label and then added the mat to Grapesicle PopTones 100#….added the inside mat and stamped a Birthday wish and wallah all done….and right inside the 5 minute time I was going for….and I think it is as cute as can be…T he card actually looks cuter in real life but you get a good idea….so if you ever only have 5 minutes to make a card just get out some border stamps and stamp them in ccoordinating colors and all is good to go!
