Hello crafty friends,

I have two cards to share with you today.  Make sure you read and scroll down to find an easy to print card tutorial.

I love using card sketches.  Card sketches make creating easier and make efficient use of your crafty time.  The following cards are super easy to do and don’t require many supplies. I created a feminine birthday card and a masculine birthday card using the same card sketch.  The designer series paper “does all the work” on these cards.  If you’re reading this blog post, I’m sure you have a hefty pretty paper supply in your stash.  Let’s use them!

Use up your pretty papers to make easy and beautiful cards.

Here’s another version of the same card sketch.  The first card has the card fold on the top and the following card has the fold on the left side.  Same design and card measurements, just flipped the card orientation.

You can keep the card simple and just follow the card sketch or you can add any embellishment that you’d like.  The card sketch is purely for inspiration.
