Stash Party # 13 - Not A 5 Minute Designer! - Thank You Card


I will be the first to admit that I am a "deliberate" card maker.  Okay, deliberate equals "slow."  I usually have to spend a few days with a concept before I ordain it finished.  So when a crafty friend of mine challenged me to a five-minute card creation challenge, I was less than enthusiastic.  I cannot create a card in a day, let alone five minutes but, as she eagerly pointed out, "that is what makes it a challenge!"  The rules were simple: using only the stamps, dies, and papers that currently are on your desk/table, create a thank you card.  The card must include sentiment and at least one embellishment.  Since I do not have a smartphone, she gave me an extra five minutes to photograph and upload my project.  I used seven minutes.

I took this picture for the blog post!

This is the picture I sent her for the challenge.  I used the background that was already set up on my table!

Stuff I Used:
Stamps: Heidi Swapp
Dies: Spellbinders
Papers:  Bazzill (Sea Glass) Neenah Solar White 110lb

Thanks for Visiting
