Fast & Fabulous Friday - Ampersands and More

Hello Dear Friends

At the 20-card class I held last Saturday, the ladies, quite literally, had 20 different cards to make in one day.  You can understand that some of these cards needed to be fast.  Really fast.  But fabulous nonetheless.  

So I CASEd this card and I have to tell you - it is really quick to make but boy does it ever pack a punch!

Quite literally - you emboss the Gold Foil with the Ampersand embossing folder and glue it to your card.  Add strips of washi tape and gold sequins, a single stamped Thank You and a Gold Bakers Twine bow and she's done.  Finished.  Complete.

I think it took me longer to type this than it did to make the card!!!

And in case you are wondering.....for the ends of the sequin trim and adhering that little Bakers twine bow...glue dots are your friend!   :)

So there you have it.  Fast.  Fabulous.   Trendy and terrific too!

And if you want a less elegant but equally Fast and Fabulous card (arguably even faster!) using this same Ampersand embossing folder, check this out:

I sponged Gold Encore Ink lightly over the embossed image - can you see the shimmer?  Add a few words from Fabulous Phrases and some Retro-Fresh Washi Tape and once again....a really cute card, done in a flash!

I love that Stampin' Up! offers me so many coordinating products that I can use to create fantastic cards!!

Hope you all have a chance in the coming days to create something Fabulous!  

Try this's Super Quick.  
Super Fabulous.  And Super Easy. 

Ok then......

Well would you look at that!   You just created a Fast and Fabulous work of art -  right there on your face - for everyone to see!

Have a wonderful weekend and God Bless you all!    ~Cynthia     <><
