Hello everyone! Yesterday was a typical rainy spring day here in Oregon, but I took advantage of the “inside day” to do some Make Ahead Cards. That’s what I call cards that I don’t create individually for a particular person and they are usually Quick & Easy.
Each of these cards took less than 20 minutes to make and they all use Sizzix Springtime Paper Pad.
The 4″x6″ pad has 36 (multiple of each design) decorated tear-out pages and can be glued directly to a card front or matted first and then decorated. The watercolor look is beautiful and so versatile!
This next card has lots of sparkle!
I like to store my Make Ahead Cards in a Card & Craft Organizer, by category so they are easy to find when I want to send a Thank You card or (gasp) I have forgotten to make a Birthday Card for a friend! We’ve all been there, right?
Want a great gift idea? Make a supply of cards to fill the box and give to a non-card making friend. They will love having special cards on hand to send to family and friends.
That’s all for today. Remember to leave some time in your busy schedule to make something pretty. Happy crafting!
