Can I make a card in 10 minutes?


Hello-sunshine-card

I've been seeing my cardmaking pals embark on the 10 Minute Craft Dash challenge and thought to myself...."Hmmmm....shaving off 5 minutes isn't that bad....Challenge accepted!" [Most of my cards take approximately 15 minutes from the scraps off my table]. How wrong I was....*LOL*

Inking and masking swirls on canvas paper: 4 minutes
CraftDash
Cutting canvas paper and rounding corners to fit: 1 minute
Adding bloom, leaves, button, trim and sentiment sticker: 2 minutes

Guess I am done with two minutes to spare but wait, what's that..adhesive? I can't get it off...Argh...there goes 30 seconds...

Scrambling to cover up misshap with lace and swirl: 1.5 minutes

Time taken: 10 minutes!
This must be the shortest 10 minutes ever. *LOL*

I think I even managed a focal point with that pop of green leaves so I'm entering it for Moxie Fab World's focal point challenge. :)

Supplies: Prima paper blooms, Tim Holtz mask, Ranger distress inks, SRM sticker, corner rounder, ribbon, trim, button, leaves, canvas paper and cardstock.

P/s: This card was picked as a fave in the 10 minute craft dash challenge! :)
