10 minute cards

I’m back (again lol).  This past two weeks has been a bit manic with Tony being so very poorly after his surgery.  He is on the mend slowly, but this surgery was so not a walk in the park like the hip replacement was.  So, yesterday I managed to grab a few hours to get some cards done.  I desperately needed some quick cards making and this is one of them.  I got 6 made in under an hour once I got the production line set up Smile

I used a Tim Holtz Tattered Poinsettia die to die cut some pearlescent vellum, edged the petals with gold Stickles and once dry assembled using a gold spacer and brad.  I coloured the leaves (cut from the same vellum) with Archival Ink.

The gorgeous Gold Glitter Mesh is from the Ribbon GirlI finished off with some die cut flourishes, pearls abd a rub-on sentiment

Another (wonky) look at the card.  Where I usually photograph my cards is choc full of presents so I had to balance this on the kitchen bench and wedge in the lights to get these photo’s lol

  10. I can't believe this is a 10 minutes card. Just cutting and assembling the poinsettia would take me more than 10 minutes. Anyhow, the end result is wonderful!!!

  31. Hi Bev--
    I am praying for you and your husband. Remember, God is Good!

    I think this card is absolutely stunning! I love how the poinsettia looks! It's amazing you made so many cards at once! I haven't really done a production line...it never works for me! Maybe that i s because I just want to colour snd not assemble! lol

    He IS Able!
