MCT Made In Minutes ~ butterfly!


Good morning and happy Monday!  Today is Made in Minutes over at My Creative Time!  So you want to know what Made in Minutes means.  I think it means, being able to create something is a short amount of time.  Well that's exactly what I was able to do today.  I was able to make all four of these cards in about 10 minutes.

I made 4 small cards for a gift set, however you could use the same concept to create a A2 size card.

Since this is a one layer card I cut my card base to the size I wanted.  Then I used a regular die, running it through my Big Shot with the rubber layer to create an embossed image.  I then cut the same image out of scrap paper and placed it over the embossed image using repositionable adhesive to secure it.  Then I used the water brush stamp, to stamp over the scrap die cut.  When I removed the scrap die cut, I was left with the embossed image over the water brush stamp image.  I hope this makes sense, if not let me know and I'll do a tutorial later.


It felt a bit plain to me so I decided to add a sequin and stickles...you know I need some type of bling!
