Down to the Wire

  I have another card for you today. Nothing like waiting until the last minute to get a card done for a Challenge that offers a free digital stamp set when you enter (the deadline is Oct 24). 
You've heard me mention Doodle Pantry before; but to illustrate how wonderful their digis are, I was able to print, cut and put together the following card in under 1/2 hour--that included the time it took me to reprint the sentiment image because I didn't size it right the first time.  Now, for me . . . that is a HUGE change from my normal "work ALL DAY on a card and maybe finish it" scenario.

Now, to be fair, I didn't sponge any of the edges. I really liked the crispness of the white, so I thought I would leave it "as is."  And, I didn't enhance the colorized swag digi with Copics either. What you see is how it came off the printer.  The DP is from the Christ Your Treasure set;  the Holly Swags are from the Seasonal Swags set; and the Sentiment is from the Holiday Greetings set.  I cut the circles with Die-namics Stax 1 and 2.

Yes, that 1/2 hour even included finishing the INSIDE of the card. How wonderful is that.  In fact, I think it took me longer to photograph the card and write my post than it did to make the card.  Oh, I am entering this card in Doodle Pantry's Monthly Digital Challenge #39
Keep Crafting, 


  1. Gorgeous card! Love how the inside matches the front and how the holly curves fit perfect in the circles! Thanks for playing along and linking up to DPDC39 and for using a Doodle Pantry illustration!

  2. Teehee, most of my challenge entries are last-minute! But rarely can I make a card as quickly as you made this one -- and definitely not one this pretty!

  3. A very lovely card and I can't believe you made it so fast, you did a wonderful job! Thanks for joining us at the Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge #39!


Thank you for commenting. Your words of encouragement keep me 'crafting.'
