Quick and easy

I'm not sure about all of you but sometimes I just want to make a quick and easy card.  I think that these fit the bill as it only took me 15 minutes to make all three yesterday afternoon. They all follow the same theme, but are a little different - as you can see from the photos below.

All the cards were made from Whisper White card stock.

The trees were punched out of scraps of Old Olive, Garden Green and Always Artichoke card stock. I used the small tree from the Merry Minis Punch Pack.

The greeting comes from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments (was known as Teeny Tiny Wishes) stamp set and this was stamped using Old Olive.

The scoring on all of the cards was done with the help of my Simply Scored Scoring Tool.

The card in the photo above and below has some Lucky Limeade Bakers Twine wrapped around it and there is also a Basic Rhinestone above the middle tree. You will see from the photo below that the trees were added using cut down Dimensionals and the Old Olive matt was also added using Dimensionals.

The second card differs as I scored both above and below the trees. Although the trees were added using dimensionals the Old Olive matt was adhered directly onto the Whisper White card stock. I also stamped the greeting in the middle of the card rather than to the right.

The third card is very similar to the second as it is scored both below and above the trees. But, this time the trees are adhered directly to the matt and the matt is then adhered to the base card using Dimensionals. There is also a Basic Rhinestone too.

These cards are a great way of using up your scrap card stock - I even used three different shades of green for the trees. There are two more punches to play with in the pack so check back in a few days to see what else I have come up with.
