Quick and Simple Creative Card

Today I'd like to share a simple and quick card featuring ColorBox® Creative Cards and ColorBox® Spritzers.

I've always love to create simple and quick cards using ColorBox® Creative Cards. There are 5 preprinted cards (5 1/2" x 4 1/4" folded) and 5 blank envelopes in each pack. Usually, you can simply decorate the preprinted cards by spraying or stamping over the design then layering embellishments onto dry card.

To create my card, I use two Creative Cards CityScape - one is the card base and another one is for coloring and fussy cutting the preprinted images.

To color the blue sky on the card base, I mix the Spritzers and water, then apply the mixture on the card with a pen brush.  I use the same method to color the images on the second Creative Card.

After both cards are dry, I fussy cut the colored images on the second card, and adhere them on the card base using Foam Square to add dimension. Some beautiful die cut embellishments from Fancy Pants Meology Collection were attached to finish off this card.

I hope you like my card and are inspired to create using these fun ColorBox® Creative Cards and ColorBox® Spritzers. Check Clearsnap blog for more inspiration. Happy crafting!
