Ten Minute Christmas Card

Hi everyone! I have a QCAS (quick clean and simple) Christmas card today, and I made it in less than 10 minutes! Mind you, I have everything planned and my materials laid out before I hit the stop watch. Read on...

When I saw the challenge at Inkspirational, make a card in 10 minutes or less, I almost said forget it. I am the worlds slowest stamper! But then I saw the challenge at Christmas Card Throwdown, to use stickers, and I thought there was hope. I almost never use stickers, but yet have quite a few of them as a result of card kits. So I decided to give it a whirl and use some of those bad boys up, and succeeded in making my card in 8 minutes 34 seconds. That is a world record for me! 

Stamp Sets: Holiday Ornaments (Hero Arts)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Real Red (Stampin' Up)
Patterned Paper: Here Comes Santa (Doodlebug)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Tools: Big Shot, Stitched Rectangle Dies (Lawn Fawn)
Accessories: Candy Cane Puffy Stickers (Doodlebug)

Thanks for visiting!

Wow, that's quick! Hubby once challenged me to make a card in an hour and I struggled! You've done a grand job here, the candy canes are lovely and the topper and background tie together beautifully. And you've reduced your stash a little. Thanks for joining in with the 52CCT.

Very impressive. I'm a ditherer and often it takes days to finish a card, if it doesn't go in the bin, as the ideas come. That's half the fun though. Your card is clean and bright and perfect for Christmas. Thanks for joining in at 52CCT
