Anchors Away

I knew just how I wanted to make this card for the As You See It Espresso Pronto Challenge – I just wasn’t sure I could get it done in 10 minutes. When I reread the instructions and realized I could gather my materials before I started the timer, I thought, well maybe. I already had some Sandy Beach card bases cut and scored, so that helped. I also had a scrap of Sandy Beach that was almost perfect for the focal image – okay now GO! The anchor and sentiment are from My Anchor by Gina K Designs, stamped in Warm Cocoa. I trimmed the scrap down just a bit. The brown gingham is from the Casual Friday PP, also by Gina K Designs, embossed with a nautical EF by Darice. I swiped Warm Cocoa across the gingham to make the embossing stand out a little more, then I trimmed it a little smaller than I intended – I had to go with it. I trimmed Warm Cocoa mats for the focal image and the pp. I was pressing the last layer to the card base when the timer on my phone went off – 10 minutes exactly. I would have liked more of the embossed PP to show since I’m also entering this in the Just Add Texture challenge at Gina K Designs, but the embossing is there and I’m gonna go with it. Always good to have another card in my stash of masculine cards.

    1. Thanks Lisa. It was fun to create, but I wouldn’t want to have to limit myself to 10 minutes on every card.

  1. Glad you took on the challenge, Judy! Great job, especially within ten minutes. Lovely masculine card. Thanks for playing with us at As You See It Challenge.

  2. That image is such a great one, especially for a masculine card, and with all the mattes you used, you did well to finish in the 10 min. time limit! I’m so glad you gave it a go. The first time is always the most nerve-wracking! Thanks for getting your adrenaline pumping with our speed stamping challenge at As You See It Challenges!

  3. Whoo Hoo – you made the time challenge and got a great masculine card in the process. I really like the design and colours of this one.
