Ginghnam Style...


I just LOVE this little bird from Purple Onion Design, and the whole time I was making this 10 Minute Craft Dash card the song going through my head was "Ginghnam Style" LOL!  I did all my stamping at once - once on the white cardstock, and once on each of the three gingham papers.  Amazingly my gingham stripes matched up almost perfectly for the wings and body - more luck than calculation!  The easiest way to paper piece in a hurry is to cut out the larger piece with a straight line running along the birds back, then just paste the wing on top - I used a glue pen too as I find this quickest for sticking fiddly pieces in a rush :)  As usual to save time I used my go-to Retro Sketch, so I didn't have to think too hard about what I was doing!  To match up my gingham lines on the base shapes it was quicker to cut them by hand, then cut the corners using my Fiskars corner rounder.  Papers are from Lily Bee Designs, with a gingham ribbon from my stash, and I cut out a circle from the light blue gingham to create my perfectly matched brad.  If I included making the brad in my 10 minutes I went over time by about 2 minutes 19 seconds, but I think it was worth it!!!

This made me smile...
