Quick, clean and simple (CAS) card

This is such a quick and simple card that took 5 minutes to make.

I then punched out the label shape from one corner, and used a paper piercer and template to pierce around the recess.

I used this frame to stamp the sentiment  through onto the card itself.

I mounted the card on foam pads to give a slight raise, and then stamped and punched the teensy butterfly to stick to the corner. A few bits of sparkle, and job done.

 A really quick and easy go-to design for last minute "I forgot it was *insert name here*'s birthday/anniversary/job interview" card - just change the sentiment, and off you go!

I don't make many cards so mine are usually 'oh no, I've forgotten xxxx's birthday'. So this CAS style is perfect for me. I shall give it a go and see if mine looks as fab as yours!
