Quick Card Layout with Multiple Variations!

Check out my quick card layout with 5 card variations in 3 different color schemes!

Then, create beautiful cards with whatever stamps you have on hand! For most of my cards, I’ve used the Forever Blossoms Stamp Set to create some all-purpose cards, but I played around with several other focal pieces too. In the end, I made a bunch of different variations making this a super versatile quick card layout that I love!

Plus, if you receive free card kits from me, most of the work is done for you because you’ll receive all the parts and pieces to make this card in a neat little package! There are more details about my FREE Card Kit Program later in this post.

For my first and original card, I used a piece of designer paper for my focal piece.

The colored card stock pieces are Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay.

The big blossom image from the Forever Blossoms Stamp Set was stamped directly onto a piece of Artistry Blooms designer series paper and colored in with Blends Alcohol Markers. For this focal piece I used the light Night of Navy marker in the center of the flower and the light and dark Balmy Blue blends for the rest of the flowers and buds. The leaves were colored with the light and dark Bermuda Bay Blends Alcohol markers.

I’ve also used my Wink of Stella brush on my flowers although it’s hard to see in this photo.

For this next card, the focal piece is made with a piece of Whisper White card stock.

The colored layers are Granny Apple Green and Garden Green.

Now as promised I made several variations of this quick card layout and for these next few I used some different stamps.

This next card was made with the Life Is Beautiful Stamp Set plus I’ve used a piece of the Artistry Blooms designer paper. I just love the subtle ombre-like background this designer paper adds to my focal piece. Plus, there’s some lovely texture in it as well!

Have you seen the Dragonfly Garden suite of products yet?
