I'm one of the world's slowest crafters so my entry for this week challenge over at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge (20 minutes or less) almost didn't happen.
I had no pre-stamped and coloured images, couldn't make my mind up when I looked at all the LOTV pre-coloured Christmas toppers I have and was in the process of just putting things away when I spied a sheet of Christmas Penny Black Stickeroos. Set the clock ticking and off I went - with this very simplistic looking card as a result:
- a piece of card stock with a very light background of snowflakes, trimmed, scored and folded to DL size
- three Penny Black Stickeroos from the 'Christmas Sparkle' sheet. Tip, I mounted each one onto spare card stock before trimming to size - and also re-rounding the corners of the main image with a corner punch
- stuck all the toppers in place using thin sticky pads
- added three sparkling diamante snowflakes as a finishing touch
Stopped the clock at 19 minutes. Told you I was slow :(
Ha! If I'd added in how long it took me to decide what to do and get everything out ready then you could probably add another 30 minutes that that time!
And this is another card to add to Craftyhazelnuts Christmas Challenge Extra, where it's always 'Anything goes'
