Cupcakes and Words

Sometimes, simple is the way to go.  Actually for me, that's ALWAYS the way to go.  I like to make cards and LOTS of them in the short amount of time that I have to craft, so the cards need to be quick and easy.  What's more simple than sentiments in the background and a colored focal point?  I hope you like these card ideas as much as I do!

I stamped and colored my cupcakes with some alcohol markers.  Based on the coloring, I chose cardstock that coordinated with the cupcakes for the background panels.  Taking the sentiment, I placed it in my stamping platform and stamped it in a coordinating ink.  I moved the cardstock panel up (or down) within the stamping platform a few grid lines each time to make an evenly spaced sentiment column.  In my case, I moved my panel 2 1/2 grid lines up or down.  

Then the rest is just assembly!  I heat embossed a smaller sentiment on black cardstock to add a sub-sentiment to the card.  This can be a great layout for so many of your cards. 

I'd love to see your version of my cards!  Tag me on Instagram @katedeignancards
