Super-quick cards

Do you like to make cards and usually enjoy the (sometimes slow) creative process, but at times wish you could whip out a card in 10 minutes or less? You know, you're about to run errands and would like to mail a birthday card, but you're pressed for time and need it done FAST. Well, i've found that Designer Series Paper is the way to go in situations like these. It really takes the guesswork out of color choices, and if you fill most of the card front with DSP, you don't need to do much stamping.

Here are a few examples. You might notice that they are very similar in color scheme. That's because i used the SAME sheet of DSP; since it's double-sided, it was very easy to just flip it over to create a different look without coming up with a whole new layout. Any time i can cut out a few design desisions, it always saves time.

Both of these cards were made awhile ago, so they use several items which are now retired. But they can still give you the idea of how to make super-quick cards! They each took me about 5-10 minutes to make, start to finish.
