The Five Minute Card

OK, so most of you that follow me know that I tend to make things that take some time, but TIME IS NOT ALWAYS MY FRIEND . . . so I am finding as my kids’ schedule is starting to kick into high gear with school, activities and just life.

I love making cards for people, and the thought of running out and buying a card because time is running out is just plain sacrilegious! I find myself breaking out into cold sweats when I am holding a “manufactured” card at the checkout counter.

Well, I just found some pretty amazing products at Michales the other day that changed my world in the scope of being able to make a card that is cute, trendy and heartfelt totally on the fly!  GOODBYE over priced Hallmark cards and Hello to Mambi Cards, by Me & My Big Ideas!

I seriously made this card in about FIVE minutes! All I did was pick a pre-cut and scored card from the Mambi card stack, cut down a piece of paper scrap for a layer and wrapped a piece of ribbon around the middle and set it with my ATG.

I then punched out a circle on another piece of scrap I had on hand and inked the edges and secured it with my ATG.

Finally I added the pre-made embellishments from Recollections I found on clearance and called it done!

I have a feeling you may be seeing more of these fun and quick cards!

Thanks for sharing a piece of “cards on the fly” pie with me.
