Cards - Birthday, Cards - General, Cards - Get Well and Sympathy, Flash Cards by Connie

Flash Card Eleanor

I have been following a great blog for a while now by a lady called Connie Stewart and she does these clever cards called Flash Cards. The pieces come in two sizes Flash Card and Flash Card 2.0 and the idea is you have a whole lot precut and then you can pull them out to make quick easy cards! She explains it a whole lot better than me so you should check out her You tube video here to learn more. She is of course using  US A4 size card so our measurements for NZ/AUS are a little different. I got busy in the recent school holidays and cut a whole heap of pieces from full A4 sheets and with my scrap stash. I am storing the Card bases and both sets of Flash Card pieces in a shoe box.


Heres one I made using Flash Card 2.0 pieces and of course Everything Eleanor. I also used the Scallop Tag Topper Punch to shape the tops of the two pieces then added some ribbon. The flower stem makes a great line or grid background. Quick, easy and cute!
