Steppin It UP in a Hurry Blog Hop

I don't know about you but I always find myself without a card, when I need it in a hurry.  All of the sudden I find out it is somone's birthday, or a need a sympathy card to take to someone who has lost a loved on or just need to let someone know how much I appreciate them.  Often I find myself putting it off making the card until I have the time to do some grand design and then it is too late.  Much to a Stampers dismay, the design of the card is important but what is written on the inside means so much more to the recipient.

Another thing I do is hoard designer series paper.  Especially when I know I can no longer get that particular design.   I gotta start using it...right?

Here are a couple of thank you cards that I did in a hurry, because I didn't want to let the moment pass.
 This is a basic design of a strip of paper, some bakers twine and a thank you stamp.

 The next cards are added upon with several scored lines surrounding the strip of paper.

The cards are then accented with some basic pearls.  They don't pop as much in the photo, but they really add some elegance to the card.

I love how simple, but how elegant your cards look <3 What a great way get the splash of DSP color, in a way that allows you to make many multiples of your designs! Thanks for sharing :-)

Such a pretty and fresh design. It's amazing how adding the embossed lines gives it such a finished look and so simple. Great technique! Pretty DSP. I'm the same way right now with hoarding that Tasty Treats DSP. Must have it!

Love both your cards - the added detail of the lines really adds something!
