10 Minute Card feature at The Kraft Journal

Hello everyone!

{I am so honored that this card was featured at Link Up Tuesday on 9/17/13}

{Busy Day on the blog....this is my 3rd post of the day...for my Word Art Wednesday Post click here, for my DeNami post click here.}

It's my turn to share a card over at The Kraft Journal. I created a card in "just" under 10 minutes using products from The Kraft Outlet

First I gathered some supplies. I had an idea in my head and then just put together the card as "quick" as I could as I went along. So the final product may not use all that I had pulled in the supply picture below.

The Supplies from The Kraft Outlet
Other Supplies
Paper Trimmer
Scallop Border Punch

Here is a picture of what I thought I might need. I start with an idea or a sketch in my head and gather all supplies first. I set my timer and went! :-)))

Here is the finished card! :-)

I started with a Brown Kraft Cardstock base which I added a layer of Buff Ivory Cardstock trimmed with a scallop border punch. Next I selected a piece of patterned paper from the Kraft & Black Cardstock Pad and trimmed to fit the panel inside the scallop border base. Next I selected a card from the Silhouette Card Set and added it to the centerI then took a length of Natural Twill Tying Tape and wrapped it around the card front and tied in a bow adding a button which I embellished with a bow created from Black and White Baker's TwineFinal finishing touches, adding three buttons to the top. 
Time to complete: 9:28
It is a fairly simple card and easy to complete quickly. Adding the ready made Silhouette card made this a snap without fussing with stamps. 

I hope you enjoyed this 10 Minute card and will head over to The Kraft Outlet to add a few items to your shopping cart that will assist with making darling cards super swifty! 

I am also joining in at Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge - Anything Goes, Sunday {Fun}day - Linky Party, Link Up Tuesday - Linky Party.

Have a wonderful and blessed day!
