Quick and Easy Handmade Card

If you’re a cardmaker, you probably love to have a design for quick and easy handmade cards.  The more complex ones can be very enticing, but you may not have the time to make one when you need it.  Here’s a card you can put together in a jiffy!

Quick and easy all occasions handmade card with Butterfly Basics Bundle from Stampin' Up!

If you’re like me, you enjoy having handmade cards around that you can use for whatever occasion comes up“Sending Wishes Your Way” will cover most any occasion, and you can add a more specific sentiment to the inside of the card.  This card is such an easy design, you could make several of them in one sitting once you have all your supplies and tools together!

I used Blackberry Bliss card stock for the card base and the large butterfly, with the same color ink for the sentiment.  The background is done with Pool Party Ink on Whisper White card stock with the Work of Art stamp set.  I did a quick video showing how it was made:

You can see another card made with the same background in this post:  Big Day Birthday Card.

The Butterflies are both cut with the Butterflies Thinlits Dies that are a real favorite from the 2015 Occasions Catalog.  The smaller image is from the Butterfly Basics stamp set and is stamped in Lost Lagoon Ink, then cut with one of the Thinlits.  I tried stamping it with Pool Party first, but it didn’t give enough contrast with the background.

The stamp set and Framelits are bundled together for a 15% savings over purchasing them separately.

Here are two videos with tips for using the Butterflies Thinlits. Since two of the Thinlits are so intricate, getting your card stock out of the dies can be challenging. A bit of wax paper makes it a cinch!
