Quick Love Card


 I made this card after being inspired by a sketch and a challenge to use leftover scraps to make a card in less than ten minutes. I usually fuss over things, but this one was done in about 6 minutes. All I did was cut the SU! reversible designer paper into 4 pieces and adhere the die-cut pieces I found in my stash! The letter "I" was cut with a Quickutz ( I have a little box of them as they cut 2 letters (caps and lower case) at a time, while the word "Love" was previously made (and never used) with a PTI die and some red glitter paper. The word "You" is from a SSS "Love You" die set that I also found in my snippet box, so I made a quick card that I may just keep for the hubby for valentine's day.

I'll enter this into the following challenges:



Thanks for stopping by and I always appreciate your comments. Take care of each other and have a pleasant weekend!

Carol

Well, it just goes to show that sometimes we fuss too much! I'm like that too and so the speed challenge is a real challenge for me. It's also amazing what wonders lurk in our snippet boxes. This one is a real beauty. Thanks so much for joining in with our ten minute scrap challenge at As You See It.
