Two Quick, Easy and Beautiful Cards

If you fancy making some easy and beautiful cards, there is no better place to visit for the supplies than our store!
Today, our Crew member, Kelli Cool shares two cards she made using variety of CCB products.


Birthday Card

I wanted to try out watercoloring with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and thought I’d make a card out of it!

Materials used for this card:
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – DragonflyOlive VineCaper Green and Tattered Leather
Canvas Corp Mixed Media Origins – Mini Art Garden Flowers
7gypsies Lace Trimmings Assortment
Canvas Corp Burlap Sheet
Paint Brush, Palette, Glue
Typewriter to write your sentiment

First, spread out the Glimmer Mists into a paint palette.

With a wet brush, paint your flower with your chosen colors. To get darker colors in a certain area, paint with the color straight and let it dry. Then with a brush wet with water, spread out the color along the edges.

Next, take your burlap and trim down to your card size- mine was approximately 4.25″x5.5″. Then glue down the burlap, then lace, then flower. I typed up the sentiment on my typewriter; you could try handwriting yours.


Mother’s Day Card


I was so inspired by the new Compose Your Life collection and wanted to make a card immediately! I love the colors and the flowers.

I’ve created a Mother’s Day card for the upcoming holiday but you can add any other sentiment to it that fits the occasion you are getting ready for.

Products used for this card:
Canvas Corp Compose Your Life 12×12 Paper – Red Flower Pieces and Beautiful Life

Canvas Corp Colored Burlap: Hunter
Clear Sequins, Glue
Paper cutter, scissors

First, fussy cut out the shapes you wish to put on your card.
I chose a random assortment so I was sure to have enough to mix and match. The key to fussy cutting is move the paper, not your scissors.

Next, I cut the background down to the size of my card- roughly 4.25″ x 5.5″

Then, I cut a green burlap strip that matched the green from the leaves I cut out previously.

Then, super easy, just assemble the card!
Again, I created the sentiment on a typewriter but you can do the same on a computer.

I hope my easy card have inspired you to visit the CCB shop and stock up onsite handy card making supplies!

Happy paper crafting!

    Both cards are vibrant and beautiful and reinforce the reason why I like floral cards. The second is my favourite though. Just something about that neutral floral background and the pop of colour from the watercoloured floral shapes that draws me in. Thanks for sharing and inspiring.
