an easy layout - revisited

Happy Friday everyone!!! I'm excited today...I plan on just relaxing this weekend and having no pressure to do anything or be anywhere...sigh, perfect! Hopefully that happens ;)   It is my birthday, I deserve a little peace, right?

Today I want to share another version of Wednesday's card. I mentioned that you can really change up that layout while still keeping it fairly simply and fast to put together. Again, this one took just over 10 minutes to create.
I started with an A2 card base in black then layered on a red panel and then more black that I had dry embossed. for my focal panel I stamped DeNami's Cherry Blossom Garland on a white panel and colored with Copics. I layered it on a red panel that I edge punched and added some black twine before popping it up with foam tape on the card base. Again, easy peasy and quick to make in a hurry. Since I didn't add a sentiment to the front and kept the colors classic, this card can be used for just about any occasion. 

Well that's it for me today. I'm off to go find something yummy to munch on and tell my hubby that I'm on "stay-cation" for the whole weekend and that he better decide where his dinners are coming from because I'm not even cooking! ;) Have a great weekend and I'll see ya right back here on Monday!


  1. Good for you Tina!! Yes, you deserve a weekend off, even from cooking! Happy Birthday my friend!! I love your card, the color combo always works and it so elegant. I love the stamped blossom too, so pretty and colored so pretty. Have a fantastic weekend!! Hugs, Brenda

  2. Beautiful card! It is one of my favorite stamps and used with black and red it became very bold and elegant! Have a great birthday weekend! Hope it's filled with fun and surprises!
