Just a Quick One! - DCM

The premise of this challenge issued by Bondgirl is "to make a QUICK CARD! a card that takes you no more than hmm 30 minutes max to do." I didn't include her intro, but I could relate to the busy lifestyle situation,and I had a couple of cards to make that I needed to start, finish, and send before the weekend, because the weekend is gonna be busy. So, since my cards were going to a pal and to her DH, I decided to make similar cards and make them both fit the "quick card" requirement for this dare. So here are my Just a Quick One! cards for the daring cardmakers challenge for this week. I think they'll be okay with me making it a quick two instead. :-)

I'm having to work outside my normal space, so I gathered up some of the basics and got ready.


I used scraps from previous cards and a couple of 6X6 Basic Grey Romano papers. I started the clock.


Those are the finished products. It wasn't too tough making two instead of one since I went with the same layout for each. I tried to make one with a more masculine, or at least not necessarily feminine, feel to it. I'd used Cuttlebug embossing folders to accent the patterned paper, Perfectly Paisley and Bloom Dots. My die cuts were made using Nestabilities dies. The stamps were all Inkadinkado and stamped with Memento dye inks. I used Martha Stewart edge punches on the green strips of cardstock then added bling. I completed both in 25 minutes, and I'd even had to go in search of the bling when it looked like the cards needed just a little more... something. Great timing with the challenge, and now I have those two cards that I needed all ready to go. :-)
