My Favorite Things 2018 Stamping Olympics - Speed Cardmaking

Two final cards for the MFT 2018 Creative Olympics Speed Carmaking finale!
Down to the wire with the challenges I didn't get this card down before the event closed, but I did get not one but two cards made for it in under 20 minutes!




I started by stamping and white embossing a Bristol Smooth panel, then I sponged it with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink. The next step was to cut it out with the large celebrate die and then I was able to inlay two cards using up the positive and negatives from the two die cuts.

Version two using the negative die cuts!

1:32 sec left, even after I lost the inside piece of the R in the black card base version and had to recut! Funny that I was so sure I would be able to get this card done easily in under 20 minutes, but under pressure you end up making all kinds of mistakes!
