10 minute card

 

Here’s a card I whipped up quickly this afternoon.  My son, Jared is off to a birthday party this evening-his first SLEEPOVER party! I wasn’t given a lot of notice about the party which is fine but given that it was a hectic day today- I didn’t have a lot of time to create a handmade card.  Just for fun I set myself a time limit of 10 minutes to decide what I was going to do and stick it all together. 

I ended up using the cardstock stickers and patterned paper from the Round Up Simply Scrappin’ Kit as the starting point of my card.   It is hard to tell in the photo but I ran the patterned paper through my cuttlebug.  As the Birthday boy is turning 7- I used my sage shadow marker to colour the 7 on the cuttlebug folder- so that when I ran the paper through my cuttlebug-ink transferred on to the number 7.  It looks really effective inking up all the sections of the cuttlebug folder- but for this card I wanted to highligh the number 7.  

 I punched out the middle of the cardstock sticker using my 1 3/8 inch circle punch so that I could further highlight the number seven- and then later adhered the circle that was punched out of the centre elsewhere on my card.  That same punch was used for the punching out the sentiment from the “Party Punch” Hostess Set

Although the cardstock stickers are self- adhesive I wanted to lift some areas so some of the cardstock stickers are adhered using dimensionals.    There wasn’t much more too it other than inking the edges of some of the accents using a sponge and sticking it all down!

Now I just need to get Jared to write on the inside- and pack his bag!

  1. Wow Miriam – what a GORGEOUS card. You are amazing! Love what you did with the patterned paper. Had a giggle about your ‘not for the chrissy card’ shot too!

  2. Yep – I loved the ‘not so happy’ photo too. I thought it was tricky getting 2 kids looking/smiling/not having a tantrum for the camera – 4 must be quite the challenge! Gorgeous kids even when not in the mood for a snap!
    Love your card. Cheers, Sue
