Here's some beautiful papers from Paper Temptress today. It's a quick and cute card that can be made quick and when finished it looks very elegant and store bought. These fun vase die cuts come from Die-Versions. The embossing done on the second layer is a 6x6" folder from Crafter's companion. I left the sentiment off the card for now as I am not sure what I will use it for, but a sweet and simple sentiment in the bottom right corner will be just the perfect touch to finish off this card and make it perfect for almost any occasion.
The base of the card is often referred to as lunch bag or kraft paper. Here's the different kinds you can get at Paper Temptress. I am using the Craft 100 on this card, but I also love the brown bag one. The white cardstock I used here is Neenah Solar white classic crest. I cut it to fit the card width and then used a tear to create the edges . The beautiful shimmery red cardstock is Vermillion Sparkle. The gorgeous die cuts are done with Mica/Metallic cardstock called Gold.
Hope this inspires you to create some quick and cute cards that you can set aside so you will have some cards for those occasions when you realize you need a card RIGHT NOW....this sweet card would be a great thank you, happy birthday, thinking of you, get well soon, or other theme that you can grab and write a quick note for that friend and pop in the mail.
