Happy Thursday! I'm here today with an extra special CAS-ual Fridays challenge. Yep, on a THURSDAY! Okay, here's the challenge:
Sounds festive, right? Well, here's what makes it really special! We're teaming up with the 10 Minute Craft Dash challenge, AND you get an extra week to play along:
So the challenge is to create a holiday card in 10 minutes or less. Don't worry, you can gather all your supplies before you start your timer! Okay, now for the paper yummies:
I decided to single-layer with this one, peeps! Which, as you know, is really not my cup of tea, but I'm trying!! I also went with some non-traditional holiday colors, as the three ink pads were stacked on my shelf and I thought they looked pretty cool together (they are Close To My Heart inks in the colors Desert Sand, Hollyhock, and Smokey Plum)! To create the large rings, I used the back side of a circular sentiment stamp from the Merry Kiss-mas set. I stamped off each ring one time onto some scrap paper to lighten the color up a little bit. Then I stamped a large snowflake from Snowflake Greetings in the center of each ring (again, I stamped off the snowflake over which I was going to be stamping my sentiment, to lighten it up). Then I stamped the sentiment, lining up the small snowflake from the word "snow" with the larger snowflake in the background. I added pink rhinestones to the centers of the Hollyhock snowflakes, and a purple rhinestone to the center of the Smokey Plum snowflake. To finish off the card, I rounded two opposite corners. BAM! There you go. Single-layer and under ten minutes (9:06 to be exact)!
I hope you'll be dashing through the holidays with us. And don't forget, you have TWO weeks to play along with this challenge! WAHOO!!! CAS-ual Fridays Stamps is sponsoring this challenge, and the winner will receive $20 to spend in the store!
