Hi everyone! Have you tried the 10 Minute Craft Dash over on the Pretty Pink Posh blog yet? It's really taken off and no wonder, it's so much fun!! I really look forward to participating and this time around I have a 2nd entry.
Now I know you're looking at this card and scratching your head, and frankly, I'm still doing a little head scratching myself. I can't remember ever making a card so graphic. I'm a layer and fluff kinda girl and this card certainly isn't. Well, there is that yummy bow...it's got my name all over it ;)
I don't sleep we'll and sometimes I pass the time by laying in bed thinking of card designs. I was thinking about one of the latest trends out there, arrows. I actually made a mental note to see if there was a punch or just precut pieces when a brilliant idea popped into my head. I just knew it would work and was way excited. I laid there a little longer and even came up with this layout. Still not sure where it came from because this is not my usual...
|As always, I jotted down my idea for the overall card and pulled out my supplies|
|I can't believe this card came together so fast! 8minutes 7 seconds on the clock. Fortunately my bow didn't need fussing with, it came out perfect the first time around so i saved LOADS of time.|
I didn't use many stamps creating this card. My signature polka dots of course and a fun chevron both by DeNami and an alphabet by Lawn Fawn. It's funny that they happen to be the sponsor for this challenge. I just love their alphabets because if how they line up. I never have an issue with making sure they're evenly placed like I do other brands.
I'll let you in on my secret to making my fun arrows. I simply punched a scallop square then snipped a corner off and then cut out the "V" shape leaving me with a fun arrow. Easy to do and a fun new look!
If you haven't entered the 10 Minute Craft Dash yet you should check it out....LOADS of fun :)
