Ten Minute Card!

Thought I would share this quick card that uses a die cut frame (Sizzix).  It can be put together in 10 minutes or less.  Firstly die cut the frame, then stamp an image onto the frame multiple times.  In order to get the color variation, ink the stamp and press image onto frame and then stamp a second time without re inking.  Sometimes referrd to as a second generation image.  Continue until frame is covered.  Adhere frame to card front.  Stamp an additional image and fussy cut around.  Adhere this image to bottom right with 3D foam tape, dimensionals (many products with a variety of names)  I personally like using the Scotch Foam Mounting tape by 3M, I find it isn't as thick as some of the others and often makes it easier to mail.  Stamp a greeting on a panel of card stock and apply ink to the edges.  Adhere this piece with 3D foam as well.  If you want to take this card to the next level (not a ten minute card)  pierce holes around the center of the flower and stitch beads on.  Alternatively, skip the piercing and glue the beads on if desired.  Hope you enjoy this simple yet attractive card.
Creatively Yours,
