A Mad Dash For a Christmas Tag

Sunday, December 23, 2012

The challenge this week at CAS-ual Fridays is DASHING THROUGH THE HOLIDAYS and they've teamed up with the 10 Minute Craft Dash for some fun.  The idea behind the 10 Minute Craft Dash is to create a project in less than 10 minutes.  I was intrigued and wanted to see if I could do it.  For my first time around I kept things pretty simple and made a Christmas tag.  And I spent a lot of time thinking about what I wanted to do before I started the stopwatch.  But I'm pleased to say that I created this (using the retro sketch) in 5 minutes 47 seconds!

I found it quite chaotic trying to create in a hurry.  I was literally running around my stamp room gathering supplies, cutting snowflakes and rounding corners in a bit of a frenzy.  I'm shocked that I managed to do it so fast, and actually made something nice.  I think I'll need a break before I try that again!

This tag measures 3 x 3 and features some Deck the Halls DSP, some gold striped washi tape, and some pretty layered snowflakes.  The sentiment is from the quickly becoming indispensible Warm Words.  I really like how it came out and it's already been attached to a gift for my brother-in-law who will surely not appreciate how adorable this is.  Maybe I can sneak it back when he's not looking!

I've got one more tag to share before I put away my Christmas stamps for the year.  But you'll have to wait until Christmas day to see it!

Really, really sweet. The red and green snowflakes are a great color pop, and love that bit of washi tape. Blessed Christmas. Bev

Wow, gorgeous tag in less than 6 minutes. I don't think I could make that in 6 minutes.

Did you use dies for your snowflakes? Or punches?
