Hi, Kathy here today and I seem to have been in such a rush lately - so much to do so little time. So I thought I'd have a go at something I have never, ever found easy - 10 minute cards!
Now I'm not counting printing time in that 10 minutes or so, but, as it happened I had a some pieces of these Winter Wedding papers from Funky Hand lying on my desk (I'll show you why, later), so the only printing I needed to do was an extra A5 piece of the dark blue pinstripe as I didn't have a piece big enough to make the background square
How easy is this card then? I think these papers work so well for a geometric layout like this.
A big square, a smaller square and a little one to fix the monogram to.
The banner is just a rectangle with the points hand=cut, and the "brads" were made just with a small circle punch and shaped with an embossing ball tool.
The monogram is a chipboard sticker so no work there either.
I still had a few scraps so I thought I'd have another go
The 2 layers for the banner are made the same way as above.
The circle is a Spellbinders Nestie die
As luck would have it I had a spare printed "Happy Birthday" sentiment left over from something else
(I'd printed 2 at the same time as I wasn't sure which font I liked best for a project)
Okay, so I'll admit deciding to make a little rosette pushed this over the 10 minutes, but not by much. It's just a strip of paper, scored using my scoring board, folded up quickly and glued onto a punched circle of card.
It didn't take long.
The centre of the rosette is another punched circle (a bit larger than the ones on the first card), shaped with a ball tool again and glued in place
Probably took 15 minutes max to make this one
So, what cards can you make in 10-15 minutes> If you have a go, don't forget to let us know where we can see your creations
Oh yes, I was going to show what I'd been making with these papers wasn't I?
That's it for this time, thanks for visiting - don't go without leaving a message, we'd all love to hear from you ;)
