A Dash of Love, Joy & Hope...

9 Minutes 17 Seconds later...
...three things you can never have too much of .

Playing along with Festive Friday Colour Challenge10 Minute Craft Dash Buttons Challenges and Dream Valley CAS Challenge. This would almost have to be a record for me from the start of an idea to the to finish of a card too - amazing what one will do to avoid housework LOL!  These gorgeous WPlus9 die-cuts and Fancy Pants buttons, together with Swiss Dots embossing folder make for a super fast & fun card :)

10 Minute Dash Tips:

  • Die-cuts, die-cuts and more die cuts :)
  • Do as many cuts as you can in one pass to save time, I die-cut the three words and one snowflake altogether in the first pass.
  • I centred the Swiss Dots on my cardstock before embossing them, then the Swiss Dots creates a natural grid to assist in aligning the die-cuts accurately and quickly.
  • I lined up the longest word first (hope), then aligned "joy" above that and "love" above that.
