This short Rocking Card Tutorial will show you how to get results for a really quick card.
There are many card folds that can be done and as you delve deeper into card making you will find more and more that you enjoy doing.
But we all want really easy cards in our repertoire that we can, from time to time, make up extra quick and easy.
Cards that will suit boys or girls of any age group, and that can be adapted for any occasion too.

None of us want to be stuck with the run of the mill kind of card.... no we want something that is a little different, and yet still pleasing even if it is easy.
After time just folding the card in half can get a bit boring, and will eventually become a hindrance rather than a help to you.
So why not try something that is quick and easy to do and will keep your cardmaking attention alive.
This super easy card is just one that you may want to try.
And don't forget to add the decoration to the back and then it will look good from any angle it is viewed.
Many of my ideas have the written instructions to accompany them, as not everybody enjoys a video, and so if you prefer to read the instructions for any of them you will find them on the website .
But don't forget you can pause or stop the video at any point or rewind ift if there is something you're not sure about.
This is where you will find the Rocking card
On a wet and windy day have a cutting session where you cut your self lots of larger circles in various sizes from card and paper and keep them on one side for whenever you need a really quick card.
Use all your pretty papers in lots of different colours ready to use, and of course you will match any stamped images that you use to your colour scheme.
Add any embellishments that you have in your "Stash" and make it really feminine for your female cards.
Use a different stamped image for the boys and leave off the flowers.
Add buttons instead for a more masculine look.
But whatever you do have fun with this Rocking Card Tutorial. It is easy and effective and the video is so short you won't have time to get bored.
