Embossed butterflies

Happy Sunday!

It’s time for a new challenge over at AAA Cards! This fortnight we are challenging you to make a card in ‘minutes’ with the optional twist of one of my favourite techniques – dry embossing! Our sponsor is Heffydoodle who are offering a price of a £25 voucher to their store!

What do we mean by ‘made in minutes’? Well, after planning your card and gathering your supplies you card should take 15 – 30 minutes to complete!

Now, I confess, I was nervous about this challenge as I am not a fast cardmaker. I don’t like rushing the creative process, I enjoy it! Anyway, I knew I had to focus on die cutting as that’s a pretty quick technique and I wanted to case one of my older cards where I inlaid embossed die cuts.

I chose a simple die, some previously-rejected ink blending and a couple of embossing folders and got to work. It probably took me about 20 minutes to assemble this card, and then another 20 to find a stencil that I decided I needed for the card base once I’d assembled my die cut image!!

The sentiment is by Hero Arts and I used embossing folders by Cuttlebug and Crafts Too.

My team mates  have created some gorgeous CAS cards over at AAA Cards and we are joined by guest designer Kateryna who has some amazing cards on her Instagram feed.

Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. So pretty Lucie! I hope you didn’t feel too rushed as I’m with you, card making should be a relaxing and enjoyable hobby. But you did it anyway and what a super result!
