Make an easy card!

This is a super easy card, a tiny bit of stamping but mostly just some cutting. The new Sophia paper has a cool pattern in it that already has some words that will work beautifully for your card. Cut your paper as follows:

White daisy cardstock - 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 for card base (fold in half)
Hollyhock cardstock - 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 for card front
White daisy cardstock - 4 by 5 1/4
Goldrush cardstock - 3 1/2 by 4 3/4
Pear cardstock - 3 1/4 by 4 1/2
Patterned paper - 3 by 3 3/4
Blush cardstock - 1/2 by 5 1/4
Distress everything with hollyhock ink

Cut the pattern paper apart but keep the words intact so that they still make sense on your card. Cut it in 1 1/4 inch strips. Glue all papers in order of size finishing up with the pattern paper spreading it a 1/4 inch apart from each other.

Glue blush cardstock strip 1 1/2 inches up from bottom of card.

Stamp any saying (I used Thinking of you from Say it in Style) on the right hand side of the blush cardstock strip in hollyhock ink. Add three brads to the left hand side of strip. Glue entire card front to card base and you're done in no time flat. This is one of the cards I'll be teaching at my class on Sunday, March 6th from 2-4:30 in Stevensville. You can make as many cards of your choice (I have a variety) as you can in 2 hours for just $10. Click on the paypal link below to sign up and I'll send you my address and more info on the class.
