I thought I'd play along with the 10 Minute Craft Dash #10, which was to create a card in less than 10 minutes, using pink, grey and green (see cute banner above.)
Well, I selected my supplies and theme, having chosen to make a travel card and started...
And well, let's just say that 10 minutes goes by really quickly! It was an Epic Fail. I'd surpassed the 10 minute mark and decided that since I'd already gone over on the time, that I was going to add stitching and buttons, too. ;)
Here's the card that I made:
I used Papertrey Ink cardstock (spring moss, sweet blush), stamps (road trip), buttons and twine. The patterned paper is Teresa Collins.
Since I figured that I was eliminated from the Craft Dash since my time was so much over (is there a 20-25 minute craft dash out there somewhere?), I'd make some packaging for it for this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: How to Package Cards with Oversized Embellishments.
I sewed together two pieces of paper from my Teresa Collins 6x6 pad and added a couple of Road Trip stamps to the front.
AND..... because I don't like not succeeding at a challenge.... I decided to try again.
This time, I decided to make a love note card, using my Mama Elephant Type It stamp set. I also used some Papertrey Ink cardstock (sweet blush), which I diecut with a PTI heart prints die, to which I added some Martha Stewart glitter.
And my time on this one...
I was done at around 7min 30 seconds and decided that I could probably add the stitching. A little stressful, but I got it done! Success!
Thanks for looking!
