Simple to Stepped Up Card in Less Than a Minute!

So the other day I shared this project and promised you a transformation. And here it is – a simple to stepped up card in literally less than a minute! And for PENNIES!

Take a look:

This simple to stepped up card was transformed using just a touch of bling - check it out!

Yes, that is the same exact card I shared the other day and that card was definitely skewed more toward a guy. Today I added just five tiny rhinestones and a snippet of blinged out baker's twine to add just enough sparkle to give it a whole different feel.

And yes, this is an under a minute upgrade – pop the rhinestones on there randomly and make your bow with the 10 Second Bow Maker and you are seriously out of the stash drawer with a whole new card in seconds.

This simple to stepped up card went from guy to girl with just a touch of bling - come see!

Now, if you are followers of my blog you know that I tend more toward the clean and simple side of things. This card, as simple as it may still be, has been stepped up just a skoshe. And just as I like to simplify some of those gorgeous, intricate projects I see, simple cards can easily be stepped up by adding more layers, additional die cuts, more embellishments, etc. This particular project offers just a starting point, a taste, of how to create your own simple to stepped up card modifications. Besides, can you REALLY ever go wrong with some bling?
