Today, we are featuring quick and easy cards! Quick and easy doesn't have to mean plain or boring. Sometimes the quickest creations can turn out to be one of your best!! I decided to do a watercolour background along with a custom sentiment using alphabet dies.

This card measures approximately 5 X 3.5 inches. Only because that was the size of my watercolour paper! I quickly laid down some watercolour paint in blues and greens. As that was drying, I die cut all the letters I needed to spell "Fa la la" out of white cardstock as well as white craft foam. I used both the Lowercase Fun Dies and Upper Case Fun Dies. l used liquid glue to adhere them together. After the paint was dry, I decided to add some gold splatters using gold Perfect Pearls mixed with a bit of water.

To bring in more of the gold, I heat embossed a sentiment from the Christmas Wishes Stamp Set and fussy cut around it. The watercolour panel was glued directly to the card base. The letters were adhered with liquid glue while the fussy cut sentiment was popped up on a small piece of craft foam...I wanted to keep the heights even!

The card was truly easy and quick to make, not to mention FUN!! I hope you found a little inspiration here today!!
