You're The Best Teacher

Hi Crafty Friends,

Welcome to our July Paper Pros challenge. This month our challenge is hosted by Caz, and she challenged us all to .....

Thirty Minute Makes - yes you heard right, from start to finish we will show off our favourite quick cards - Often the Karen Burniston cards are very decorative but sometimes time consuming (worth it) but we wanted to show you it is possible to make a card in just 30 minutes. ** Obviously this does not include you designing the card once you know what you are doing you can set the clock.

Here is a quick video to see my card in action.

OK disclaimer .... I don't make 30 minute cards, it is impossible for me, but this one was a lot quicker than what I would normally make .... but probably did take longer than 30 mins .... oops! I knew what I was doing and other than deciding whether I wanted the colored cardstock on the larger rectangle or the decorative panel in the middle of the three layers it was pretty easy. 

I also used chipboard embellishments for my decorative pieces so this meant no stamping, cutting or coloring which is normally a big reason a card can take so long to make. 

For the interactive portion of the card I used Karen Burniston's Triple Flip Card die set, I have been having lots of fun with this die set recently. I had already found the rainbow crayons in my stash and while looking for some papers for another project, I found this crayon patterned paper which was also in rainbow colors, so the pair just had to go together.

Children these days seem to have multiple teachers and as I have two grandchildren, I am also looking for an excuse to add another card to my thank you teacher card stash for them to give to their teachers at the end of the year when school is finished for the year. The teacher stamps and dies are from Heffy Doodle Stamps.

For the inside of the card I added a little strip of the rainbow cardstock I used on the front of the card, this is something I have had in my stash for years! I added two more sentiments and another of the chipboard embellishments.
