Enjoy Simple Pleasures ... A 15 Minute Project

Pin It

Happy Friday, everyone!

Today's "15 Minute" project was created in a flash using die cuts and an easy-to-color image from Hero Arts.

I stamped my image on Xerox 110# card stock, then colored it with Koh-I-Noor pencils, blending with Gamsol.

I matted the stamped image using black dimensionals on dark brown card stock cut with a Large Rectangle Die. I also die cut two brackets from the Cuttlebug "Olivia" alphabet set and used my slit punch to create a scalloped edge.

Finally, I applied two antique copper metal photo corners; to keep them from floppin' around on my card, I clipped the prongs off and glued them down to my card front.

Easy-peasy and ready to serve in just 15 Minutes!

Thanks so much for sharing part of your day with me; have a great weekend!

This is terrific...I cannot believe it only took 15 minutes! Of course, if my office was clean, maybe I would have to spend less time on the hunt for things! Love the metal hardware on your corners! Have a good Friday chickadee!
