Your Shortcut to Quick Cardmaking

Hi everyone! It's Jen here, and I'm here to share a quick and easy way to create stunning cards using our range of A2 Card Fronts. If you're like me and sometimes need a fast but fabulous card, or find yourself in a creative rut, these card fronts are a game changer. In this post, I'll show you how to use them to make two super quick and beautiful cards. 

Quick Cards Made Easy!

When you're short on time or are stuck in a creative rut, why not try out the Fabulously Glossy or Fabulous Foiling A2 card fronts. I'm still struggling to find my flow after a long period of illness but also wanted to make some cards. So I grabbed some card fronts, a few other items and ended up making two cards! 

 Thank you for Being a Great Friend



      1. Create an A2 card base using teal cardstock. Select an A2 card front from the "Where Sun Meets Land" collection and trim it to 5 1/4 inches by 4 inches. Adhere the trimmed card front directly to the teal card base.

      2. Die cut the word "hello" three times: once in white, once in black, and once in teal cardstock. Stagger the die cuts so that each color is visible, creating a double shadow effect.

      3. Stamp a sentiment from the "Friendship Matters" stamp set using black ink on smooth white cardstock. Die cut the stamped sentiment. Add both the "hello" die cut and the stamped sentiment to the front of your card design.

      4. Embellish the tree on the card front with plenty of blue gems from the "Speed of Light" gem mix.

      This card took about 15 minutes due to adding so many gems, but as you can see, we didn't need to do much in order to have a beautiful project made. Your card is now ready to share with a friend!

       Happy Birthday Full Front Shaker Card


        1. Select a panel from Birthday Bash card fronts. These are actually toner-friendly card fronts, but in this tutorial, we are using them as patterned paper!

        2. Die cut a shaker sheet with the A2 full front shaker die, or trim it if you don't have the die. Using double-sided tape, adhere three sides of the shaker sheet to the back of the card front. This creates a pocket you can add your shaker elements into.

        3. Before adding shaker elements, die cut "happy birthday" in both white and black, then adhere to create a shadow. Use strong adhesive on the back of the words, wait until tacky, and then stick them on the front of the acetate. Hold down to ensure the words are secure.

        4. Add in all your shaker elements. Here I've used a sequin mix from the Glamorous Embellishment Jar, as well as the All About the Purples Sequin Mix.

        5. Seal the last side of your shaker sheet on the back to complete your card and then mount it onto an A2 card base.

        This card looks amazing, it's interactive and has lots of texture, but the best part? It took about 7 minutes to create!
