DIY 5 Minute Card - the Secret

Yes, REALLY! This means YOU can create this lovely card in 5 minutes--actually less but let's say you do it on Monday and you're not up to 100% speed for the week yet!

So isn't this a great card? Here's my secret--I used Project Life 7-12-16 Project Life DIY Card
remember that Project Life by Stampin'Up! is the memory keeping system that uses these awesome pocketed pages with the pre-printed cards you can slip in next to your pics and complete your album in no time. 

So today I saw the unopened box on my shelf and had to peek inside to see what was in's the PL Hello Lovely Card Collection and the accessory kit. The accessory pack comes with a small stamp set too! 7-12-16 Project Life Hello Lovely

Here's a pic of the large cards--you also get small and square can't really get a good look but you get the idea--there are 100 cards in the kit plus tons of goodies in the accessory pack--and it all fits in this wonderful divided box:

So here's how I created my 5 minute (but looks like a million bucks) card--see the supply list following the directions to purchase your supplies to create this little beauty:

1. Cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock 8 1/2 X 5 1/2, score the long side at 4 1/4 (cardbase)

2. Find the 4 X 6 PL card with the dogwood pattern and cut it to 5 1/5 X 2 (you will have enough from this one card to create 2 greeting cards plus a small piece to use as decoration for another card or tag. Adhere this to the bottom front of the card using multipurpose liquid glue.

3. Stamp the Thank You (substitute any greeting you need) (from One Big Meaning stamp set) in Expresso Classic Ink above the designer paper.

4. Cut a 6 1/2" piece of Delightful Dijon mini-striped ribbon and adhere to the top of the designer paper (card) using Tear & Tape (#138995)--the ribbon will wrap around the sides of the front.

5. Cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock 4 X 5 1/4 and adhere this to the underside of the card front to hide the ribbon ends.

Now I thought I was finished but I was looking at the accessory pack and found these 2 wooden leaf stems that just matched the leaves in the designer card--so, take 2 of those and adhere them on either side of the greeting using liquid our card is completed! 7-12-16 Project Life Hello Lovely Card PLUS
