AAA Cards #137 - Made In Minutes + Dry Embossing

Today sees the start of another CAS challenge at AAA Cards. And it's a bit of a speed challenge too.

Our sponsor for this challenge is a UK company - Heffy Doodle. So of course I used one of their stamps.

I love this oversized greeting and jazzed it up a bit with a Kaleidacolor ink pad. I really liked the card just as it was, but thought I ought to give the optional twist of dry embossing a go. So I used my score board to add some vertical lines to the left hand side.

Oh and the made in minutes - about 10 or maybe even less I think. Yep, forgot to time myself!

Stamps: Heffy Doodle, Big Bold Words
Ink: Kaleidacolor, Creole Spice

So what can you make in minutes? Loads more inspiration from the AAA Cards DT and our GD Katerina - HERE.

Thanks for your time today, I really appreciate you visiting my blog.

And keep crafting!
