30 Minute Color Block Cards

This one is so fast to assemble that it probably should be called a 3 minute card.  I had a dozen of them completed in under an hour and that included the time it took to select the papers and sentiment stamp!

I like the way they turned out.  Quick, simple and pretty! They'll be great stationary for OWH soldiers.

All the papers came from a DCWV Latte matstack of 4.5 x 6.5" papers.

The base is A2 size, the mat is 4.5 x 3.25" and the individual rectangles are 2 x 1.375".

Linda, this is a great way t use up scraps too! I often go through my scrap paper pieces and cut different box and rectangle sizes, then put them in a container. Then there they are waiting for you. These are very pretty. Thanks for sharing the sizes and your talent! Tami

Thank you, Tambo!

I was on the phone with Okieladybug while looking at a card on her blog. She provided me with the dimensions of the cuts she used and it sure speeds things up when you don't have to figure them out! lol!

Great idea for cards! I think you're right about them being good for OWH.
