Uh, apparently, 3 weeks from today we're opening gifts and eating turkey. How on earth did that happen so quickly?!
It's time for a new 10 Minute Craft Dash over at Pretty Pink Posh, so I am here to share my latest quick creation with you. And you're going to think I am lying to you, I am sure. But I have photo evidence to use in my defense!
This week, the colours are red, green and yellow, so of course I had to go a festive way with it!
I had seen this card on Pinterest, and loved it so much I wanted to make my own version of it. And since I had a lot of elements on my desk already, I thought I could probably make it happen quickly.
Here is proof that a lot of the die cutting, bow tying and element gathering was done simply by poking through the 'extras' basket on my desk:
The banner pieces were left over from a cake topper bunting I made a year and a half ago. The candy cane and mini clothes pins were extras from some kits I put together (keep an eye out for those on the blog in the next few days!), the twine was cut for another project, then scrapped when I picked red instead. The bows - who knows, I always seem to have extra bows on my desk! The lace came from my little glass of extra trimmings, and finally, I just so happened to have a red card base on hand. So here's how the pile started before I hit "go" on my timer!
And here's how it ended:
All I had to die cut was the lace border, the heart border and the house. And if you look - I again left behind the gold twine and went with something different! The sequins, rhinestones and little heart die cut were scattered debris that happened to fit the bill as I was creating! Seriously, sometimes it pays to have a messy desk.
I completed this in 9:55. I promise. But truly - so much of this was laying there already! And fast hands people, fast hands. There's no time to waste with thinking about whether your house was adhered straight (it wasn't - you can see that)!
