The 5-minute Christmas card


5-minute-Christmas-card

Okay, so I'm a little late to the Christmas party since this is my first Christmas card of the year! But I'm staying positive because this only took 5 minutes! *winks*


1. Wind cording around washi tape roll to get the shape for the wreath....1 minute
2. Choose a card base from my stack of residual-misted card bases....1 minute
3. Heat up the hot glue gun and choose an embellishment saved from last year's Christmas card....1 minute
4. Adhere the wreath and the embellishment...1 minute
5. Add little bits of Golden gold mica flakes...30 seconds.
6. Admire my handiwork....30 seconds. *LOL*


*Edited* This card was one of the highlights at the Mixed Media Card Challenge and made Honorable Mention at CAS(E) this sketch.

P/s: Happy weekend friends!

Adorable! Don't forget to add photographing, editing, and blogging. That usually takes me 3x as long as the project itself. ;)

Good going!!

Lizzy Hill said...

Writing this blog post? Aaaah! How many cards could you have made instead???!!!! Just having a joke with you....LOOOOVE the wreath. That alone would've taken me 30 mins, cos I would have gotten all twisted up wrongly. I adore it - such a creative, fun card idea:) STOP READING this....you're losing more card making time, LOL!!!!
