We all have those moments when time is short, but the desire to craft something special is strong. Today, you’ll learn how to whip up stunning greeting cards in no time, using the versatile and stylish Something Fancy Stamp Set and Fully Flowering Ephemera Pack.

I chose a bold color for my card base – it really stands out and sets the stage for the beautiful floral image I chose from the Fully Flowering Ephemera Pack. To step it up just a bit, I embossed the background using the Distressed Tile 3D Embossing Folder.

The Fully Flowering Ephemera Pack is perfect for helping your creativity bloom easily and quickly. The laser-cut floral elements give you the look of hand-colored die-cut pieces in a hurry, without any of the work! Just remove them from the sheet and adhere to your card base and voila!

And finally, I finished up this easy card with some simple embellishments, using the Shy Shamrock resin dots, which added just the right touch without taking up too much time. And there you have it — a quick and easy greeting card that’s perfect for any occasion.

A Tip from Barb

This card is only categorized as a Worker Bee card because of the Distressed Tile Embossing Folder I used on the background. If you’d like to make this card even faster, remove the Embossing Folder and replace the look with a “crumpled” paper look.

To do this, take the Basic White mat, lightly spritz it with water, and crumble it in your hands until it’s well crumpled. Carefully smooth it back out and adhere to the card base. It’s an awesome look with very little work!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope you are inspired to make simple handmade cards for friends this week!  If you’d like more detailed directions on how to make this card, feel free to email me. Give this papercrafting tutorial a try 🙂  Check back soon for more card making ideas!
