10 Minute Craft Dash fantastic? I thought so, too, so I pulled out some PTI sets and used this card by Laurie Willison as my inspiration. (I realize it was from last week's Muse Challenge, but I didn't get a chance to play along and loved Laurie's card too much to pass up the opportunity to CASE it.)
I finished the card in 9 minutes 33 seconds and I liked it...yay! I did have a bit of an oops...about 2/3 of the way through the stamping the argyle pattern I realized I was on the wrong side of the card base, but I knew I wouldn't have time to start over. My cards mostly go to family, so I figure they won't mind opening a card from the opposite direction, right? Keeps things interesting. As I was taking pictures of the card the argyle pattern completely reminded of a sweater vest my dad has. He is the sweater vest king. He loves them so much that for his 60th birthday my sister made him a sweater vest cake. (Wish I could find a picture of it...it was awesome.) My oops got me thinking, what if I flipped the card vertically...so I did and I realized that with that orientation the card looked like part of a suit jacket with a sweater peeking out from underneath. Soooo I had to make another card just for fun.
