5 Easy Cards Using Carly's Download

You want fast, colorful, fun, and easy?
Well, I've got all that today.
And NO sequins or gems!

Used a free downloadable template from Carlytee Minner. You can find it here. Super simple -- download the template, print on cardstock, trim, score, and add your stamping or other items. You will use one piece of cardstock for one card, but for me it was more than worth it. 

This uses a floral stamp from Penny Black, which I ink blended in pale blue.

Added some color with a stamp from Pinkfresh Studio Abstract Builder and some dots from a My Favorite Things set.  Purple is not my go to color, but I'm stretching! 

Borrowed Carly's design here. She stamped a cascade of pretty flowers down the card from Everyday Doodles. I substituted butterflies. (This is my favorite of the bunch.)

Stamped a small heart in 3 different colors. Sweet. 

The simplest -- ran two shades of Altenew ink cubes over the sentiment.

Thanks to Carly for providing the starting point and the ideas for decorating these cards. If you aren't familiar with Carly, check out her IG feed and her blog. They are chock full of colorful clever cards.
