Christmas Cards in 10 minutes or less

I think it was a couple of weeks ago or so that Tammy Hershberger posted a challenge on Paper Craft Planet to mass produce some cards. Well what better time than Christmas to get some done especially when Sharon Johnson also posted a 10 Minute Tuesday challenge for simple cards some time ago. I combined the two with some K & Co. snowflakes that I bought last year (I know, I know...but I AM using them!), Papertrey's Snowflake Serenade, a SU snowflake and my snowflake punch, just two colors of ink per card and some Martha Stewart clear gem stickers.


The picture shows the outside of the card on the left and the inside on the right.


Each card takes LESS THAN 10 minutes!! For me, that qualifies as a minor miracle!!


Here's a partial look at the 20 cards I made in under an hour.

What fun and each just a bit different because the focal snowflakes are just a bit different just like real snowflakes. . I removed the gem from the center of a few solid white ones and added a punched snowflake to pull in my color but most had some color in them. Each snowflake came already glittered so IRL these really have some neat sparkle and they already had a dimensional on the back.



Ok, now let me see what you can do in an hour....no layers, no ribbon, but as much sparkle as you want!



Supplies: Cardstock: SU Whisper White


Ink: SU Bashful Blue, Mellow Moss, Cool Caribbean
