Ten minutes Craft Dash Challenge #6


Today, Avery Elle sponsors the 10 minute craft dash challenge using the colors in the above graphics.  I am the slowest card maker. I can say I am pretty fast and efficient in many other areas.  But not when it comes to card making, it takes me hours to make one card.  This is definitely a challenge to me. 

So before I started, I read the tips and tricks Paulina put together.  And I came up a few more strategies might work for me - use only card stock, no patterned paper since it always takes me even more time if I use patterned paper; keep it one layer; use stamp with bigger image to cut down the time for stamping; use stamps that I used before and am comfortable with.

With these in minds, I pulled out the stamps, the inks and the card that I already cut and scored, and set the timer. Stamping went pretty smooth. It was done under 9 minutes!

Check out the rest of the Avery Elle DT for more inspiration. Jamie provoided $20 gift certificate to Avery Elle store for a winner.

Ha, I thought I was the slowest card maker! I still do. You did a fabulous job creating your card in 9 minutes. I've yet to participate in the challenge because of my speed. Thanks for the encouragement!
