MFT Creative Olympics 2018: Event 4..Speed Cardmaking..


Happy Monday and Happy President's Day to those of you that are lucky enough to have today off.

This is the final event for the MFT Creative Olympics. I have really enjoyed making the cards and despite the fact that my first two will be disqualified, I still have 4 great cards for my stash.

Event 4, seemed to be perfect for me -

I am a pretty fast cardmaker, not intentionally, it just seems that is how I work and generally I am pretty well prepped for my cards. It is rare that I approach my desk without the supplies I want to use whirring through my mind!

For this event you have 20 mins to make a card. I nailed the time part -

1.25 left of the 20 min time limit.
But the emotional stress of it, kinda took the fun out of it for me. I kept looking at the timer!

I used the 'London Mouse' set (being from London, this is a fave of mine) and the 'Chevron Grid' background stamp for my card, the sentiment is from the 'Polar Bear Pals' set.

I stamped the chevron background first and then stamped, cut and coloured my scene. This took the most time.

Once I had everything ready, I die-cut the chevron panel and affixed it to my card blank. I then added everything else to the chevron panel. Some of the pieces I popped up using foam tape.

I decided I wanted a flag banner for the sentiment and affixed it to my card using a staple.

I'm pleased with the end result, but no more timers for me..
