Birthday rush

On Monday night we we were celebrating my nephew's birthday.  He's been saving up for an iPad so it was easy to get him a present this year as all he wanted was cash.  Of course I didn't want to just hand it to him as my husband suggested, so I ducked into the craft room and whipped up a quick card.  I only had about 15 mins and this is what I came up with.

We tucked down the flap of the blue envelope to rest lightly under the button so you could tell it was meant to be opened.  It was super quick to do - thanks to the Bigz Scallop Envelope Die & Lattice embossing folder for the big shot.  The rest was some very quick glueing and coordinated punches.

While I love long and complicated projects, sometimes all you have time for is speedy craft.  Limited time doesn't mean you have to compromise on quality and style.  You just need the right tools and a little inspiration.

I'll be back with more inspiration posts soon.  To share with you how some everyday items and events inspire me with craft.

Thanks for stopping by.
