Quick and Easy Cards

Hello!

I have two cards today!  That's because they were so quick and easy to do, I was actually able to make them in half the time that it normally takes me to make one!  The wedding card was definitely done in under ten minutes and the birthday card, maybe just a tiny bit over ten minutes, only because of the embossing. 

Both cards are Paper Smooches.  A little explanation probably required for the birthday card!  It is for my work BFF.  We have worked together for ten years, and I don't know what I would do without her.  She is AWESOME!  We support each other, we laugh together and we also like to tease each other!  She hates it, HATES it whenever I use words that I am FAR too old to be using, so of course, I use them all them time around her!  "Adorbs" is her all-time most-hated!  Well, that meant I would stamp it as many times as I could on her card!  I giggled the whole time I was making he card!

And onto the cards...

The birthday card:


The inside of the birthday card (because she hates "totes" almost as much!):


And the wedding card:


It was really nice to be able to whip these up in little time!

Hope you're having a TOTES awesome day!!!

  2. LOVE both of them! I like how you used the sentiment to make it as a background for the card. I am sure your BFF will like it a lot :)

  3. Your BFF will laugh her head off with this multiple 'adorbs' stamped background card! I'm with her: adorbs and totes are kind of annoying, but as you've so aptly showcased here, they do have a purpose (sometimes..). Yes, she will love this, and all the more because you made it especially her! The signature Shannon-heart will win her over completely! Wedding card: darling, sweet, delightful (another signature heart!!)! Ten minutes for each = impressive! I'd need 10 times as many minutes (and likely waste 10 sheets of paper, too!). FABULOUS cards!! Counting down hours to departure...excited for you!!

  5. TOTES ADORBS! (I must live under a rock because this is honestly the first time I hae heard about these words!!!)

    Fabulously sweet creations! Love the little heart that you colored white in the sentiment. Great fussy cut cake too! Awesome job lining up all the "adorbs" words. I can just about hear you giggling away to yourself as you were stamping this card! You DH probably thought you were losing it!

  10. This was so fun, Shannon! Both your cards are fabulous, but I adorbs what you made for your friend! Oh, and wait. What? We aren't supposed to use certain words when we get to a certain age?! You mean like around 80 years old, right?!!

  16. I just love fast cards! Both cards turned out fantastic, but I just love your adorbs card... mainly because of the story. Heehee. I just love fun 'evil' cards like that.
