AAA Cards - #154 Made In Minutes + optional twist Blending

A new game has just started at AAA Cards and it's ideal for this busy time of year - Made in Minutes!

Here's my card:

I used the fabulous new stamp Background Blocks Scandinavian Christmas from Uniko our sponsor for this challenge. It's an ideal stamp for making quick cards and all I did was emboss it in white and then blend some inks over it.

I matted it in black, stamped a block greeting and used a Papermill Direct pale turquoise card base. I have to admit I think this card is a little short of white space - on this case pale turquoise white space - but there's still just about enough to meet the AAA Cards requirements.

Stamps: Uniko, Background Blocks Scandinavian Christmas, Simply Said Blocks Christmas
Inks: Versamark + WOW! opaque bright white embossing powder; Versafine Clair, nocturne; Ranger distress oxide, picked raspberry, mermaid lagoon, twisted citron, peacock feathers
Card: Papermilldirect, pale turquoise & black

The rest of the AAA Cards team have also made quick and easy cards to help get your creative juices flowing - HERE. We've also Bev from Uniko playing along and the amazing Angie from cimbacreativefun joining in as a Guest Designer. Their cards are so inspiring and a welcome break from Christmas. Do pop over and enjoy!

Huge thanks for your time today, I'm so pleased you came to visit my blog.

And keep crafting!
