10 minute card



This was a card we made at my 10/10 card class last week. The idea behind the class is to make 10 different cards that take about 10 minutes or so each. Simpler cards but still cute! Well, I precut all of the paper so it makes it easier for my customers to make them in 10 minutes - lol! I saw the idea for the flower on SCS. You punch out the circle scallop punch, then cut slits in it and fluff it a little bit to look like petals. The middle of the flower is stamped with the polka dot circle from Polka Dots and Petals. This set makes great backgrounds and middles of flowers and sadly, it is retiring from the spring/summer catalog. You only have a couple of weeks to order it so hurry!

Recipe:
Stamps: Polka dots and Petals, Sincere Saluations
Ink: Taken with Teal craft ink
Paper: Old Olive, Apricot Appeal, Bali Breeze designer paper, pumpkin pie
Other: Circle scallop punch, 3/4" circle punch, irridescent ice embossing powder

Kathleen, would you mind if I used your card sketch for the local SCS shoebox swap? It is such a great, easy layout! I will make sure and give you the credit (:
