Big Shot is excellent for quick, clean and simple cards!

Sizzix Big Shot Die-Cutting MachineIf you have a Sizzix Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, you have an excellent tool that will allow you to quick as a rabbit crank out a quick, clean and simple card that is, frankly, adorable!

Despite how incredibly simple my handmade card is, I believe you’re going to love it.  For two reasons, the first is because it is attractive, the second because you’ll see just how easy it was to make.

The Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes are perfect for a quick, clean and simple card.  They’re white, so you’ve got cleaned covered.  Add to it quick because they are already cut to size and scored for you.  Gotta love that.  To make it fancy dancy, get out your Big Shot and Honeycomb Embossing Folder, which just happens to be 25% off through August 25.  :)

Wanting the front of the card embossed only, I slid the note card over the narrower side of the Honeycomb Embossing Folder.

 The embossing folders are too long to go through the Big Shot along the longest side.  The note card had to fold underneath the Honeycomb Embossing Folder.  I hoped folding it over would not pull it too far from the fold for good coverage.

Look how well it did!

 Finishing my quick, clean and simple card was, well, quick.  Stamped “FOR YOU’ in Tuxedo Black Memento ink in one of the honeycombs. Added some flowers made the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and attached with a Mini Glue Dot.  In the center of each punched flower is a small Basic Pearl Jewel colored with a black Sharpie Marker.  Done!

Seriously, it took no time at all to make.  And that includes decided on the final design.  With that already done for you, it will take you less than 2 minutes to make this handmade card.  But, only if you have a Big Shot Die-Cut Machine.

Comment left by Linda from Nevada about a previous Stampin’ Up! Catalog Ribbon/Paper Share:

Just received my 2012 Paper/Ribbon Share from Shelly and have only one thing to say: F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S-! It’s even better than last year’s offering! LOVE LOVE LOVE how organized everything is. There’s no guesswork and no wondering what the ribbon colors are or what the name of a particular collection of designer paper is. Everything is clearly labeled and wonderfully packaged. THANKS AGAIN, Shelly, for offering another spectacular share!
