|Happy Happy Birthday!|
Made this birthday card for my youngest auntie (mother's side) whose birthday is on this Thursday.
Edit to add:
|Seems A Little Sketchy - Challenge 45|
I plan to enter 10 Minute Craft Dash #23 - Birthday Theme challenge. Thus, I adopt the sketch from Seems A Little Sketchy - Challenge 45 as shown above as a simpler sketch might helps!
To make a card in 10 minutes or less is very challenging to me as I usually takes my own sweet time to make a card. But I like to challenge myself sometimes. It took me some times to decide and prepare my supplies as the rules says that I can pull out the supplies before the timer starts. Thus, I prepare my card base, pattern papers and card stock into required sizes and even pull out the Copic markers colors I want to use! I feel a bit of cheating but after a short consideration, I find it good to go ahead as the rules did not mention cannot do like what I did.
|Close-up : Digital cupcake|
I use a digital stamp so that it helps a bit on time saving. Then, I start my timer and quickly color the cupcake with the Copic markers colors I pulled out earlier. I wasted a bit of time thought in searching one or two extra colors.
|Close-up : Pattern paper and punched border|
Right after that, I quickly work on assembling the card with the pre-cut pattern paper and the pre-punched red border strip as well as the fishtailed banner. I took some time to do a little measurement and some extra trimming.
|Close-up : Sentiment|
By 6 minutes plus, I realized that I did not get my sentiment ready! I waste a chunk of time looking for the stamp set and sentiment! Aaaarrrggghhhh!
|Close-up : Fishtail banner with red gems|
By the time I finish attached the three (3) red gems onto the fishtail banner, my timer show that it is 10 minutes and 7 seconds! Phew~! That is close and lessons learnt! Double check the supplies twice before start! I
I am glad that I completed the mission (with extra 7 seconds) and the card turned out nice! :P
