10 Minute Dash; Take 2

Hello everyone,

I am back with my second attempt at the 10 minute craft dash, and I must say I am now hooked!


CraftDash


Here was my list of supplies this time around:

Cardinal digi stamp from Fred She Said (this one comes in black and white and a couple of pre-coloured versions - perfect for quick cards)
Ribbon
White cardstock
atyou Spica marker (clear)
black ink pad
Sentiment from Stampin' Up Bells & Boughs stamp set  

And here is what I came up with:


This second card went much more smoothly - so much so that I ended up making two of them.  The first time it took me 9 minutes and 28 seconds including the time to set up the pre-coloured digi in a document and print it.  Since the digi was already set up for the second one, it only took 5 minutes 30 seconds!  Perfect for mass producing and mailing as it is very flat.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:

10 minute craft dash - free for all (2nd entry)
Simon Says Stamp - animal antics (2nd entry)
Top Tip Tuesday - one layer card

Thanks for stopping in and for taking the time to leave a comment!  Have a great week!

Hugs, 

Dawn

Ten minute dash sounds like a great idea; especially if this is the standard you can get out in that time! It's a very smart card. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving your lovely comments too, I always appreciate your visits, Donna xx
