"Always believe" 15 minute CAS (and elegant!) inspirational card

Hello Crafty Friends!

There are many reasons why I adore Quietfire Design stamps and dies.  Today's project is an example of one of those reasons: the elegant stamps and dies can make the simplest of cards stunning.

The focal point of the card front is the inspirational stamp, Always believe:
Always Believe - Mounted
The below instructions can be used with many Quietfire Design stamps.  In a jam to get a card out quickly?  Follow the instructions below to create a card that the recipient will love!

Card instructions:

  1. Create a 4.25 x 5.5 top fold card using ivory card stock.
  2. Cut patterned paper smaller than card front.  Use black archival ink to stamp quote onto patterned paper.  Mount to card front.
  3. Die cut frame using ivory card stock.  Mount to card front.  (I added a slight bend to the die cut to add some dimension.)
  4. Create bow and mount to top of frame.
  5. Done!

So easy!  And what elegant results!  Imagine doing this for your Christmas cards.  Pick your stamp and patterned paper, then create a stack of holiday cards in a flash.
Thank you for stopping by!
Have a happy, crafty day.
Big Hugs,
Kathy Jo
