Creating Quick Cards

While I love making lots of intricate cards and home decor items, sometimes I just don't have the time.  So when I need to create a card in a hurry, I grab my Crafter's Companion Moorhead Luxury Card Collection.  This card kit has everything you need to make a gorgeous three-dimensional card in no time at all.  

It includes gold-foiled die-cut toppers, sentiments, and borders, all which coordinate perfectly with the matching printed and gold-accented card stock.

I was able to create this card using only the Moorhead card kit and adhesive in under five minutes!

I simply punched out the pre-printed die cuts and used Crafter's Companion Double Sided Adhesive Foam Squares to layer the pieces together.  The raised foam creates the fabulous three-dimensional effect.

I cut one of the matching card stock papers to 6 x 8 inches and folded it in half to create a 4 x 6 inch card.  I saved the other half of the card stock which had the same little boy with his puppy for later use.

You can see the gold-embossed border all the bottom of my card.

Then I glued on my layered little boy image, as well as the matching Happy Birthday Sentiment, also included in the Moorhead Luxury card collection.  In just a few minutes I was able to create a wonderful birthday card for a friend!

Have you purchased and used one of these amazing kits?  We'd love to have you share the cards you've made with it on our Facebook page.

Happy crafting!
