Carolina Girl (Cely)
Each year I make my World Travelor SIL formal embossed cards with just her name on the card for business.  But, then I throw in those silly, quick cards like below.  The first is simply black and white with just accents on the princess crown.   The second, is colored with copics and just Xerox - ed ten times.  The third is what you make when you drop ink on the card and you don't want to waste the image....haha  I used the adorable Scarlette Cafe from Bugaboo Stamps.

Coloring = 10 minutes, copying and printing a batch of 15 cards = 2 minutes, embossing = 5 minutes and glitter pen on crown took 2 minutes, folding the cards and putting my name on back = 3 minutes.  Start to finish....22 minutes  You may say, "well, that looks like a 22 minute production of 15 cards", but there are those days that "this is all you need" and someone will enjoy it no matter WHAT it looks like...haha

Black and White, with gold glimmer on crown..all cards are embossed.

Colored one, scanned and ran 10 through the printer

This is how you make a card when you drop ink on it and don't want to waste the image.
PS  I merged a public .png princess crown image to Scarlette's head.

    LOL! You are SO funny! 1st - LOVE the first black & white card. I would never have thought that would look so good un-colored. And I would NEVER say that looks like 22 minutes worth. They are all fabulous! OMG, I'm still laughing.
