Dashing Hearts...

Excited to present my first 10 Minute Craft Dash Challenge DT card, with this card taking just under 10 minutes - 9 minutes 53 seconds to be exact!  This weeks 10 Minute Craft Dash winner will receive a FAB gift certificate from Denami Design.

I make sure I am really organised before I start my timer, with all my papers and supplies close at hand, a clear workspace, and a sketch of what my card will look like (or at least what I think it will look like!)  I die cut my clouds from the heart paper first, then embossed my white cardstock, and juggled my paper over the embossed cardstock to work out the best positioning of the swirls before cutting the cardstock to size.  I stamped my TAWS birds and fussy cut them, I had also stamped and started to fussy cut a balloon before I realised I would run out of time to incorporate the balloon and the birds, so I just focused on the birds - and made a second version featuring the balloon later!  I stamped my sentiment and hand cut the fishtail before assembling my card, including pop-dotting the die-cut layer - keeping in mind to use foam tape and peel off the backing before I cut my tape to save time.

Don't forget to stop by and check out the rest of the DTs creations for more Craft Dash inspiration:
