Fast Friday Card :: Miss You

TEE GEE EYE EFF! I am looking forward to tomorrow morning when I can sleep in! Saturday sleep-ins are the best! Anyway, today I have a fast card to share with you. Although there is lots of background stamping to create patterns, it is a clean and simple layout and a quick card to pull together in a jiffy. So, thank ya'll (I have a southern accent from my time living in NC) for stopping by and enjoy your weekend! Now, here's how you can make one too...in a jiffy, that is!

  1. Trim navy cardstock to create an A2 card base.
  2. Stamp grid pattern on card front.
  3. On cream cardstock, stamp text background pattern.
  4. Ink the edges of cream cardstock.
  5. Stamp bird and sentiment.
  6. Adhere cardstock to card center at an angle.
  7. Add mini clothespin.

Stamps :: Papertrey Ink - background basics (text), bird watching additions, mega mixed messages; Cornish Heritage Farms - distressed grid
Paper :: Papertrey Ink - enchanted evening, vintage cream
Ink :: Papertrey Ink - enchanted evening; Stampin' Up! - chocolate chip; Ranger - antique linen
Embellishments :: Nice Package - mini clothespin

OK, this is terrible, but I have to tell you...in your Supplies list for this adorable card you have nicepackage.com. Well, curious about how much the tiny clothes pins cost, I went to that site. Lo and behold, they are not selling tiny clothes pins...(check it out and then fix it--fast. Ha!)
