Another Fifteen Minute Card

Hello everyone, it's time for another epic blog post over on the Chocolate Baroque Design Team Blog, featuring cards made by the Design Team, that take fifteen minutes or less to create. This monthly feature shows how the lovely stamps from Chocolate Baroque can be used to create simple cards in a flash, as well as the more elaborate cards often produced for the Design Team Blog. We want to share quick ideas for beginners, or for those of you who need cards in a hurry. Maybe you want to make a batch card for Christmas, a wedding, or perhaps you need ideas for a craft stall even, that do not take hours to create.

I have made a simple little card as part of the blog post, using a gelli plate to create a background. I brayered two colours of Distress Ink onto a smaller gelli plate, (the 3" x 5" plate), and then pressed some bubble wrap onto the plate to create a pattern. I stamped the gelli plate onto a white card blank, like a stamp.

I stamped the bird from the Spring Fairy Collection stamp set onto the background, adding some coloured detail with Polychromos pencils. Finally, I added a sentiment from the Words of Wisdom stamp set.

Changing the words on this card could make it suitable for so many occasions, both masculine and feminine. It was a really quick card to make, and I hope that it has given you a few ideas to make some cards of your own. Do check out the rest of the blog post on the Design Team Blog, and see the fabulous projects from my Design Team mates.

Thanks for stopping by, xx

Sweet card, love the colours and the fab gelli background! Great colouring with your pencils!

Your layout always gives me pause for thought & this is no exception. The font of the sentiment is accented by the circular spirals of the bubble wrap background (just look at those 's' shapes) & the way the sentiment is placed higher than the background creates balance which I'd not have thought of for I'd have aligned the top of the sentiment with the image panel thus losing the arresting impact of the sentiment's darker weight against the softness of the image panel. The little pearls are the perfect accent cleverly matched in colour with the image panel. I think that's why I love the CAS style so - there's more than meets the eye when they're successfully designed.
