A 10 minute Card! ......Day 4 at Summer Camp.

Talk about pressure! Todays homework was to make a card in max. 10 minutes.

That is something I have never tried but what is the point of attending a class, if you are not interested in trying out new stuff. 

Just so you know I didn't even know where to find the stop watch on my smartphone. But I do now! LOL

Our teacher Kristina Werner showed us how important it is to be prepared when making a 10 minute card. As her, I found all the supplies I needed for this card before starting. I did not cut anything out, just made sure stamp set, ink, dies, punches etc. were lying ready.

In the beginning I thought it was going fine......until the end! I was really pressured the last 1½ minute. Things just take more time than you think.

My time ended on 09:46:7 and my desk looked like a bomb had hit the table...LOL.


One thing I am not too happy about is that the sentiment is stamped a little too much to one side in the oval window. Well, shit happens.

Also the leafs are not placed excatly where I had planned in my head. It's like your fingers goes all bananas when under time pressure. But all in all I am very satisfied with my first ever 10 minute card :o)

  6. Great card. You were very ambitious with your details. I rather like the slightly off-centrr sentiment. It balances the card nicely.

  9. This is fabulous!! If you didn't say anything about the sentiment, I would not have noticed it!! I actually like it a little off balanced due to the way the flowers are on the right bottom half of the oval. Oh, and my desk was horrible too after this challenge. I think that stressed me out too!! Great job on the challenge!!

  15. I wouldn't change a thing - it's gorgeous! I'm still working up the nerve to try it, but you're right, what's the point of taking a class if you're not willing to try! I'll give it a shot (well, at some point over the next few weeks anyway!!)
