The Mod Squad Challenge this week is “Fast & Easy” for those times where you “just need to get a card done quickly.” (http://modsquadchallenge.blogspot.com/2015/07/fast-easy.html)

I was on vacation with my family and returned home realizing I needed a birthday card which needed to be mailed the next day in order for it to arrive on time.  (I seem to have trouble with birthdays that are on the 1st of a month; it was the end of June, and I forgot July was right around the corner!!)  I decided to take advantage of an awesome piece of scrapbook paper by 7gypsies called “Vintage Varsity:  Putt” and used the corner of the sheet as my card base.  Here is what the whole sheet looks like:

7gypsies Vintage Varsity Putt paper

The printed panel was mounted on Gina K Charcoal Brown card stock and then on a Recollections Kraft base.

The greeting was stamped with Gina K Charcoal Brown ink on the kraft and charcoal brown as well. The stamp is called Above Par Birthday Greeting by DRS Designs and actually says, “May your Birthday be like your golf game – way Above Par!” but I wasn’t sure if the “joke” would be appreciated so I masked out the “like your golf game” part!

To finish off the card, I added some jute and a metal golf bag charm I had in my stash.  (I had ordered these HERE a while back.)

  1. Love the paper and how you used that corner. Perfect for quick and easy card but the recipient will never realize it. The charm , sentiment and twine make the perfect embellishments.
