Birthday cards for challenges
I was able to get some more birthday cards done this week. I created these two for some challenges. First, the Annabelle Stamps Splash it On challenge. I was lucky enough to win a couple of Annabelle's new stamps during their last release, including Splat Attack, which was perfect for this challenge.
A really simple card to create, I got out my neon inks and created a background print, I always work from lightest to darkest when stamping with neons. An Avery Elle sentiment with a handwritten "to you", and that was that. The great news is that I still have some of that print I created, so I'll be able to make at least one more of these.
Next, I thought that the 10 Minute Craft Dash would be a great one to start regularly participating in to create some quick birthday cards, although I confess that I probably take way more than 10 minutes to figure out what's going to actually go on the card and to lay out the supplies.
I thought my last craft dash card looked really stark as I went very CAS on it, so this time I pulled out some patterned paper and larger embellishments. I definitely like this one better than my first try, and was doing pretty well until I decided to go a bit off-road from my plan....when I decided the oval frame needed a little something and added marker dots all around it....but I finished just in the knick of time.
Hope your weekend is going well!
