Keep it Simple Sunday

Today's tip: Use rub-ons to create a custom card in under 15 minutes!
For the past few months, I've been hoarding a huge draw full of rub-ons...I love these things yet I can not bring myself to use them. That is one down side to rub-ons; when they're gone, they're gone! It's not like a rubber stamp that can be used over and over. That said, I am never disappointed with the finished product when using them! Today's card was super-duper easy! I used a SU! punch to add a scalloped edge to the front of the cream card base and then added one rub-on (also from SU!) to the bottom, right above the scallop. I love this lower case font combined with the swirls and tiny flowers. Since I knew it would be close to impossible for me to leave a card without a small hint of color, I used a butterfly rub-on on a circle, cut with Nestibilities, layered on top of a deep orange scalloped circle. The circle was attached to the card front with dimensional tape. A few tiny rhinestones from Taylored Expressions added the perfect bling accent!
Now that's what I call simple...
