Sometimes I need a card for an unexpected occasion and I just don't have enough time to prepare something very detailed and elaborate. Using die cuts to embellish a die cut card is a quick and easy method for resolving such a dilemma. Choose neutral colored papers (less thinking is best!), run them through the die cutting machine and adhere. Ink it up if there's time. Add a sentiment and some shimmer. Done.
I've used Bazzill cardstock in tan and brown and a piece of doodlebug design 1939 bon bon chenille cardstock to create this very simple card using mostly die cuts.
One of the last items that I purchased from QuicKutz (now operated by a company known as Lifestyle Crafts) was their Special Delivery limited edition gift set. The set contains cookie cutter dies for cards, borders and mats, labels and tabs and some exclusive shapes;
like this little bird . . .
and these flowers to layer . . .
This lovely Helen Keller quote is from a 2010 Close To My Heart Spring stamp set . . .
In just a short time, I put together this simple card ready to tuck into a gift bag for someone special . . .
Next time you have a need for a quick and simple card, consider creating a card using die cuts.
