How to make a quick card - my favourite GO TO designs

Ok, so as you can see from the last time I posted, I have not been posting regularly. Life simply got away from me and I haven't had a chance to write. I have made cards for friends and family as needed as per usual. But when I'm running around and need a quick card, here is one of my go to designs.

One simply layout - I'm all about ribbons as a backdrop whether it is a wide, transparent ribbon or a thin cute ribbon with some design to it. Then I add some sort of 3D object, whether it's a paint chip that I've stamped on (those are simply fabulous and the Ralph Lauren metallics don't have any printing on the coloured side so they're ready to go!) or a piece of vellum. Throw some stickles on as needed, or a pearl/bead element and you're done! Fast, quick, and easy! Give it a try!

What are some of your simple quick card ideas?
