Incredibly quick cards!

With time running out to get cards in the mail,  I had to make some super quick ones.  There's a few on my card-list that I don't mind sending minimalistic cards to, meaning I don't feel guilty.  I just want to send them something to let them know I'm thinking of them and since they don't know the extent to which I typically make cards, they have no expectations and these simple cards will be fine.

I printed off some of the great free vintage images from Magic Moonlight. and layered them on American Crafts cardstock (American Crafts is truly one of my favorite cardstocks).  I was thrilled to see that my Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather papers went perfectly with the prints.  I love Cosmo Crickets mini decks.  Since I didn't do any additional embellishing and didn't stitch on them *gasp* I was able to make all four cards in a matter of minutes! I kept them a standard 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 size (a size I very seldom make) and they are ready to mail easily!

It took me a lot longer to take and edit the pictures and write this post than it did to make all four cards.  So are you thinking of a few people you might like to send a card to that you forgot or maybe you need some cards to include with a gift?  Hop over to Magic Moonlight - I noticed a lot of great new posts this week!  Adorable pictures! Print some images, cut some paper, glue together!  Done!
