10 Minute Craft Dash #21


As I shared yesterday, I was thrilled to be asked to join the 10 Minute Craft Dash Design Team and today I'm sharing the card I made for my first 10 minute craft dash challenge as a DT member.

Here's the challenge:



And we're very excited that Clearly Besotted is sponsoring Challenge #21, with the prize being two stamp sets of your choice!


When I saw that the challenge was to feature stars, I thought immediately of using my PTI seeing stars die. But I also wanted to include a Clearly Besotted stamp, so I chose to also include a stamp from my Fancy Feathers set.

Here's my card:


I used Papertrey ink cardstock and some Echo Park patterned paper. I stamped my feather on some lemon tart card stock and cut it out by hand. I diecut my banners using PTI's double-ended banner die and get a handle on it banner die. I used my PTI Canvas & Linen impression plate on my star and added a couple of PTI buttons to finish it off.  Those buttons were the most time-consumming part!

And here's my time:


Thanks for looking!

Love the textue on the white star, and the feather is a perfect embellishment.

And looks like I need to congratulate you AGAIN! Way to go on this DT too. If only I could limit my time to 10 minutes ... I've tried it a couple times. A great exercise. Your card turned out wonderfully. That feather is so fun and trendy!

This card is so pretty, and does NOT look like a 10 minute card--great job.

Great card--I couldn't have made it in under 10! Love that feather!
