Detailed Simplicity

Do you ever watch professional card makers on YouTube and have crafter’s envy? Most times, I do. I love their endless supply of inks, stamps, dies and paper!

Now while I do have an impressive craft stash, I love making cards using minimum supplies. I buy alot of sentiment sheets found in scrapbooking paper collections and for easy storage, I cut those sentiments up and store them in little tin containers.

Method: Using just one sentiment per card and personalised inked backgrounds, I created a few cards. I used a few stencils and coordinating distress inks for my backgrounds. I matted each sentiment with cardstock. Each of the following cards took me about 5 – 7 mins each – so it is a great quick and easy make!


If you want to start card making, I hope that you do not feel intimidated for not having the latest craft supplies. Simple cards are beautiful too.

Thank you for reading. Until next time, learn new things and if you can be anything, choose to be a kind human being.

Yours in paper crafting,

The Girl with a Tape Runner
