Another DIY 5 minute card
Thoughtful Branches Bundle - Stampin'Up!

Last DIY 5 minute card....maybe!!

Ok, I know this is the 4th card...but I had to show you what I did with the bitty cards in the accessory kit that complements the Project Life by Stampin' Up! Hello Lovely kit. The PL kits have cards and accessories you can use to decorate the pocketed pages to quickly create your memory albums. If you've been following the last 2 weeks you've seen several greeting cards created with these same PL cards...today I was checking out the accessory pack for the Hello Lovely kit and found these awesome 2 X 2 cards...I thought, ohhh yeah, I know what I can do with thees....check it out 7-22-16 PL card

And yes, it did only take my 5 minutes again--so little work and such an awesome result. As with all (or at least most) cards just substitute your greeting for whatever your need is at the time. In fact, sometimes I just create the card and leave the greeting until I need a card and stamp it then.

I'm going to give you the step by step directions and then give you the supply list for today's card so you can purchase your supplies to re-create this card.

1. Cut the card base from thick Whisper White cardstock 4 1/4 X 11, score the long side at 5 1/2.

2. Cut Pool Party carstock at 4 1/8 X 4 1/8; adhere the three 2 X 2 PL cards (Hello Lovely Accessory Pack) using multipurpose liquid glue. Adhere this unit to the card front using liquid glue--see the picture for placement.

3. Punch a butterfly (using Elegant Butterfly punch) from Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper, pull the wings back and together and adhere the butterfly tummy to the area without a PL card using a glue dot. Adhere 3 small rhinestones around the butterfly.

4. Cut an 15" piece of Pool Party3/8" Stitched ribbon around the bottom of the card front and tie in a knot. You may want to secure the knot to the card with a glue dot.

Your card is completed! Send me a picture of your creation--I'd love to see what you are doing with these awesome cards!
