Grunge Circle Card

Here’s another card that you can make with no special supplies. You don’t even need a circle punch if you have the patience to trace around a nickel or a quarter 18 times and cut them out 🙂

Otherwise, what I used for this card was Ranger Distress Ink and flowers with a brad. That’s it!


Easy Card That Uses One Shape!

If you’re in a hurry, this is the card for you (and don’t try to make it sideways if you want the squares straight lol!) :).  Grab your favorite shape punch and a sticker and you’ll be all set! I used squares for this one, but try triangles, circles, hearts, leaves or whatever you happen to have on your craft shelf.

The white card is 5″ x 5″, so I punched 8 squares from pink cardstock and grabbed a square sticker. The sticker was very thin so I put it on a piece of cardstock and cut it out. I also used zots to pop up every other square, a teensy flower that I put a jewel in the center, and some Ranger Stickles Glitter Glue to embellish the sticker a little bit. That’s about it!

And the winner is….

Do you have some vintage pins laying around? If not, you can get them so many places for next to nothing. Check out yard sales, Goodwills and other second-hand shops, also flea markets and antique stores. They usually cost next to nothing! Even if you wouldn’t always wear them in today’s fashions, they make the most lovely accents for cards!

For this card, all you need is your card, Graphic 45 scrapbooking paper for the background on your card, some satin ribbon, zots and a vintage pin, and you’re all set!
