I 'Promise' these Cards are Easy to Make!

I love quick cards. I also really like using pre-printed sentiments when I can. While many of you may chose to use the pieces from the Enhancements Cut Apart 12x12 sheets on your layouts and in your pocket scrapbooking, know they also make great sentiments for cards. Using the Promise Collection, I will show you how easy this is.
For each of these, I cut some kraft cardstock down to 8.5" x 11", then cut that in half lengthwise for two 4.25" x 5.5" cards.
I then layered a piece of slightly smaller paper or two, and layered the journaling card cut from the Enhancements Cut Apart on top. 
To add more interest, I also included various May Arts ribbons to each cards, and then added little elements like sequins or enamel dots using Xyron Adhesive Dots
Additional shaped die cuts like this one (it's actually a Kiwi Lane bracket template) can also make more interest. If you cover certain parts, those shapes might also look like other shapes, such as this bracket now taking on the shape of an egg.

Authentique: Promise Collection 12x12 papers, Enhancements
Additonal Supplies: May Arts ribbons, Teresa Collins sequins and enamel dots, Kiwi Lane Design Templates (Sweetheart), Xyron Adhesive Solutions Dots, American Crafts kraft cardstock
