10-Minute Valentine Challenge


DH's favorite color is camouflage!! Is that really a color? Anyway, I threw caution to the wind today and made him a quick little un-traditional Valentine card that reminds me of camouflage and fulfills a whole bunch of challenges!

Here they are:

act 11

So I can thank Susan for this "new" technique of placing scored lines on my card....I just never think to do it, plus I don't have a Scor-Pal, but it is easy enough to do it with my scoring tool:


The CAS part is self-explanatory! The stamps are a new clear-mount set from SU, which I have been using a LOT lately! This really did take about 10 minutes--I decided to add some embossing with my Big Shot (look at the closeup photo on top) so that may have added a minute or two (only because I had to look up my directions as to how to do it!!!). Thanks for visiting today!

Barbara said...

Cute! And very "manly"!

Boy, you really did nail all the challenges! So that's how I should do them (4 at a time) to accomplish so much!

Those 10-15 minute challenges wear me out! I did VSN on SCS once and although it was fun, IT WAS CHALLENGING!

The camo idea is a great one. I'm sure he will think it's FABULOUS!

I have the Color Throwndown on my list. I hope I can get to it. It is a unique combo.

I have not been stopping by very often. I love how you used the inspiration to branch out and make a super guy card. I think it is going to be so fitting for your camo loving DH {mine says his favorite color is chrome}
