For Baby Card

So, I had to give this 10 minute thing another shot. Let’s just say I failed miserably (but I did get quite a bit closer, more like 14 minutes). Even though I prepped the heart embellie in advance… that’s not cheating right? :) I can’t do anything quickly apparently. Sponging even takes me a long time! I think there’s a reason why you don’t see shabby chic cards among the 10 minute craft dash team cards or in the linky creations!

This time I used this week’s deconstructed sketch 117. The basics of it anyway; I didn’t follow it to the letter. I now see I put the rounded edges at the top and I didn’t layer the two main panels the same way but I hope it’s close enough. When I set about to colouring the image, I realized I hadn’t used chocolate anywhere yet so the blanket ended up dark brown. And I added a chocolate button too. It’s a bit hard to see under the twine but it’s there.

I die cut the heart out of corrugated cardboard then added a soft yellow/ivory paint to the edges. While it was still wet I added some micro fine white glitter. Then I added glue to the very edges and gold opaque glitter. The button threaded with twine tied in a bow was the finishing touch.

Beautiful card ! No wonder it took a little longer, but hey not bad for under 15 minutes !!! SHabby cards definitely take longer to make. You have inspired me to make a shabby card ! wahoo

I usually try to do my shabby thing in 10 minutes - I've managed a few! But they're more simplified, I'll give you that.

This is beautiful though, even if it did take you a little longer - it was worth it!

Thanks for playing with the Craft Dash!
