“We’ve all been there. You forgot a birthday, anniversary or other occasion, and you need a quick card. When trying to make a last-minute card, my problem is always narrowing down what materials to use. So, follow this recipe to get it done quickly: 1 cardstock sheet, 1 patterned paper, 3 ribbons or washi tape, 1 sentiment and 1 button.”
This challenge really peaked my interest. It was a challenge filled with sub challenges: last minute, limited materials, a card subject you usually forget or need a quick card and there was no mention of using dies- which is a challenge for me. Immediately I thought of Christmas...again. That's right, my New Year's Resolution of not making last minute Christmas cards will be met this year.
Ok. The challenge was on. I grabbed white card stock, scooped up one of my fave Quietfire Christmas sentiment stamps and rapidly grabbed a sheet of sei's Silicon Valley patterned paper. If I was really rushed then I would need a sketch to follow...MOJO Monday!
I cut, I stamped, I embossed, added a lace ribbon, made a double bow, glued on a button. Voila! Quick Christmas card. Whew! That was a good test. It feels like there should have been a long beep following the completion of the card:
'This has been a test of the emergency card making system. If this had been an actual Christmas card making emergency it would have been followed by frantic photos, the removal of glue stuck on fingers and tape stuck in hair. This concludes this test of the emergency card making system.'
Thanks for stopping by! Have a good day.
