5-Minute Card ft. BAF Begonia


Beautiful cards don’t always take a lot of time!

It’s been a while since I tackled a 5-minute card, but after doing so many recently that take some time or special technique, I thought I should take a step back and make something simple, but beautiful! What better way than to show you how versatile the Altenew Build-a-Flower sets can be if you just scale back the layers!

Cutting back

The key to a gorgeous 5-minute card is “keep it simple”. As you can see, there’s no diecutting, no layers, no coloring — just ink and paper. In this case, I kept it super monochromatic by sticking to only one ink color and a soft gray cardstock. But, a gorgeous one-layer card can be tough to achieve! It’s not enough to just stamp an image or two, slap on a sentiment and call it good. It seems that simple cards take more planning to make an impact.

Since the complexity of physical layers are absent, we have to create visual interest in another way. For this card, I achieved that by masking. If I wanted to add more depth, I could have come in with a graphite pencil and added shading to make the flowers pop, but I really wanted to leave it as simple as I could.
