It’s almost that time of year and who has a list of cards to make a mile long and not enough time to make them? I think I can hear a lot of you agree that this you! Well these are the type of card for you, quick and easy note cards. I decided to make these live on my Instagram page yesterday, which is something I have been trying out as a new regular feature – going live over on my Instagram once a month on the second Monday (please note – November there will be no video) – it’s fun to try new things sometimes!
Picking up a few basic supplies and trying out a smaller card size using the note cards, you can whip up these easy note cards in a flash!
the finished quick and easy note cards
Here is a look at the five finished cards! Don’t they look fun? So textured and beautiful when you see the colours all together! Here is a look at the finished colour scheme….
I have a few tips when it comes to making quick and easy note cards…
my top tips for making quick note cards…
- Pick your theme, select your products and have a plan first.
- Grab something for texture (i.e. a twine, an embossing folder, thread etc…), a paper, an embellishment, a sentiment and something to use as your focal point when trying to decide on a design.
- Batch process – once you have your plan and have decided on how you note card will look. Make one note card first and create our finished card as your ‘master plan’. Now batch process. Make each step in batches. i.e. Emboss the background for all the cards. Stamp the sentiment for all the cards. This makes the process a lot quicker!
- Don’t feel like you have to make them all exactly the same. Make simple but small changes like I have on these samples by changing the background colours.
I created this card live on my Instagram and have shown how I created each of the cards but also batch processed some of the steps. This will show you how I went about creating these so you can get some tips.
