Hi Everyone! Carisa here from Inky Fairy Designs with my first post as part of the CardMaker blog team and I am so excited! For my first post, I was asked to make a card in 10 minutes or less for you. Ha, ha, ha—I laugh because if there was an award, I would win for the SLOWEST card maker of all time. 😉 Since I had a time limit, I decided it was best to look at my collection of October Afternoon stickers to get me started. One of the things I love most about October Afternoon is that their embellishments can be used across the different collections because the colors coordinate so well.
What about you? If you need to create a card in a short period of time, what design elements do you tend to be drawn to? Are you a fast or slow card maker like me? I’d love to hear about your 10 minute card-making adventures in the comments below!
