10 Minute Card

I'm sure my children think I can just whip up a card in five minutes without any trouble at all.  On the weekend my daughter wanted a birthday card with purple (her friends favourite colour) and not too flowery. Oh and she was leaving in 15 minutes did I have anything suitable.

So this card is from the level 1 Hostess set - Birthday Bakery. I used my versamark pen and inked a couple of the cakes from the long stamp and then embossed with white embossing powder.

I just punched them out with the 1 1/4 " square punch and them punched a few of the in colours with the 1 3/8" square punch to place behind them. I used Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade and Pear Pizzazz (cute names aren't they). Then I layered it on some Poppy Parade ribbon, Wild Wasabi card and them Poppy Parade card.

The Happy Birthday is from the teeny Tiny Sentiments which I punched out with the window punch and then the new Modern Label punch. SU punches make it so quick and easy to make a card in a hurry.


  1. I'd wondered what the Versamark pen could be used for - thanks for shedding some light! Not a bad card at all for a 10 minute job!

  2. It actually looks even betterin reality. Thise square punches are really useful,aren't they!
