Fastest fingers first...

Hey everyone,

Sorry again for the delays in postings. Well, the bride-to-be has picked out the design she likes best, for the wedding invitations, and so - with the help of my very kind and patient friend Ana - we've made a good dent in the cards! And the bride-to-be came over the other day and was taught how to emboss; she loved it! And in this case, many hands really DO make light work!

So we're getting there - I'll post a picture once the invites go out.

Well... today my friend Alessia came over to make some cards and she made - wait for it - eleven cards in 2.5hours.

So I thought, if she can do it, so can I!!!

It took me 10 minutes to make this; here's what I came up with:

Really clean and simple with just a few elements - it takes just a few minutes and still looks rather nice :)

The thing that took the longest was tying that piece of string! I tried (in vain) to tie a bow, but the string just WOULD NOT listen (which is annoying, because I'd just made the same card with a bow for Alessia!). So I tied a knot instead.

Cardstock: Linen (The Papermill); Patterned (K&Co's Mega-stack)
Greeting: From a Hero Arts sayings collection (lost the packaging!), Aged Mahogony distress ink
Tools: String; Martha Stewart Royal Butterfly punch; Fiskar's scallopped edge punch

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

1. Caardvarks: Monochromatic
2. CardPatterns: Sketch 94


  1. Beautiful card! Thanks for sharing it with us! Good luck with your challenges!


  2. This is so pretty Tasha! I love the clean and simple look. The butterflies are a nice touch! That is great it took so little time. I need to make a few simple cards.

  3. Love the elegance on this card Natasha! The color combination is beautiful!

  4. Very, very pretty!! Love your color choice :)

  5. WOW! 10 minutes, I'm well impressed :) We gotta get together for cardmaking soon hun.

    Hugs for the cold weekend
