Make it Quicker!!

Every now and then I want to make a card that is very simple to do. I am aware that not everyone who stops by here is a professional card maker!! And what would it take to be one??? I don't know, I'm certainly not one!!! But I do know that not everyone liked lots of layers, knows or wants to do some of the techniques. SO I like to make cards that don't take a lot of time or effort to do. And personally, I like to find these myself now and then. It's a nice break from lots of layers or cards that take lots of time.

This card didn't take much time at all. I would have to say the cutting of the card stock took the most time here. I kept the colors simple and you know, you can't go wrong with red, black and white now can you???

I wanted to use this dear friend image. I've looked at it MANY times in the set and moved on to something else but every time I saw it I knew that someday I would be using it. Well, today is that someday!!!!

I stamped the image with black Staz-on. I like how it makes the image very bold. Yes it is more difficult to remove from your stamp but it's SO worth it.

I ran my white and black card stock through a Cuttlebug folder, the paisley one and I cut them to fit the card layout.

I was thrilled because I got to use the new striped ribbon too!!! I bought this ribbon with Christmas in mind and it's nice when I can use it for other things as well!!

SO if you're looking for a quick and simple card to do, this is the one. It's the perfect layout for that.

Thank you SO much for dropping by,

Wonderful! Thanks for reminding me to use my CB embossing folders more often; it makes the card! Simple, easy AND striking!

Love the card, Wanda!! The striped ribbon looks like the old Real Red Striped grosgrain, though, not the 'candy cane' stripe in the holiday mini (which looks wider and more even stripes'.

Am I wrong about this? I don't have the new yet, so I'm wondering.
