Quick & Easy Card!

Project Design ©Sharon M. Reinhart
I thought I would share this quick and easy card with you today. It was actually created for some friends who have just become Grandparents. How exciting! Keep in mind that just because something is quick and easy does not mean it is not effective or themed to the recipient. This card is a congratulatory card for the safe arrival of our friends first grandchild - yes, a grandson, you guessed it. The materials used here were; a checkerboard embossing folder (believe Cuttlebug) a quilted heart Jesse James button, sheer brown ribbon, printed and solid cardstocks, Memories midnight blue ink and Colorbox Fluid Chalk ink by Clearsnap in Chestnut Roan color, stamp (Michael's bins) and some adhesive metal embellishments.
The inspiration began with the button which has a quilted effect on it. The button was not quite the right color so I applied some midnight blue ink to it and tied on a bit of sheer brown ribbon. The quilt or checkerboard effect was continued with the pressure embossed checkerboard on the vertical solid panel and that same shape was also repeated with the three square metallic embellishments.
Now if you are not in the market for a congratulatory card for a Grandson, switch up the colors for a Granddaughter or possibly a wedding or even a graduation card -- a heart embellishment works well for any of these special moments.
Creatively Yours,
