Quick & Easy Cards with Lori

So, we're getting closer to Christmas here - who else needs some quick & easy cards?  Ecstasy Crafts to the rescue!  Some of my favorite images are "Gorjuss Girls", and Cutters Creek carries a beautiful sheet of "Winter Friend" images to make two cards.  Best of all, they are currently on sale for 15% off - but you better hurry, there are only 4 left in stock as I type this!  Of course, if those are all gone, there are lots of other awesome choices from Ecstasy Crafts available; just have a look around.

Here are the two cards I made, keeping it simple:

Using a white 5"x7" card base, I assembled my EC image.  Then I used a pin clip to hold my "title" like a sign, and added a little bow of Doodle Twine to it.  I added some black organdy ribbon beneath the image, then layered on some ribbon printed with a sentiment from my stash.  I colored over a few little details in the image using a Copic Atyou Spica glitter pen in Black for a tiny bit of bling, but it doesn't show well in the photo.

Again I chose a 5"x7" white card base and layered my image onto it.  I repeated the layered ribbon and added an accent made of white & black paper flowers and a blue plastic flower, held together with a black brad center.  I again posted my "title card" in a pin clip and tied it with some Doodle Twine.  This time, I highlighted some areas of the image using a Sakura Jelly Roll Stardust pen in clear.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my quick Gorjuss Girls!  I have a more time-intensive, stamped and colored image over on my personal blog today if you'd like to check it out.
