Gypsy Sisters - Easy Cards...Step by Step

Good morning! The rain is pouring down here, so I can't take any decent photos of my layouts to show you. I created these cards for the Kaisercraft Blog, so I thought I'd pop this little step by step on here for anyone interested in some quick and easy cards...


Choose the paper range you want to use (I chose Gypsy Sisters) Once you’ve decided how many cards you want to make, cut out an appropriate number of flourishes from the paper, (1 for each card). Stamp a corresponding number of flowers with an ink to match the papers, and make some rolled flowers (remember that tutorial I did?) to match. (If you dont want your card to be too bulky, just stamp 2 flowers for each card instead.)

Now…cut (and ink) your papers to these sizes…

10cm x 14.5cm…..7cm x 9cm…..6cm x 6cm…..9cm x 2cm…..2cm x 2cm…..5cm x 2cm (this is to make 1 card, so cut more of each size depending on how many cards you are making) You should end up with a little pile that looks like this…


Now for the easy part - putting them together. Grab a pack of blank cards and envelopes, or you could fold your own cards, then just follow these quick and easy steps and you’ll have them put together in no time…






How easy is that? Now here's a close up of one of the flowers just for fun...cos I love them so much!


I've got Emily home with me today so I can dose her up on lots of antibiotics, so I am planning to have a crafty day with my girl. Hope you have a great day!
