MCT: Made In Minutes

Happy Happy Monday!!!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Today over at the My Creative Time blog, it is
Made In Minutes!
This is the day where we create a project and try to keep it under 20 minutes. 
I know it sounds difficult but it actually sounds a lot harder than it actually is. 
Emma's products make it so easy!

For my project, I decided to make a little birthday card that will also hold a gift card. 

For my envelope, I used the Scallop Stitched Envelope die. I decorated the front of my envelope by using the banner and balloons from the Stitched Party Dies. I added some twine for the balloon strings. I also stamped the "Happy Birthday Sweetie" from the Celebrate Good Times set and layered that on top of the Stitched Curly Label Die and Curly Label Die and popped it up with some foam adhesive. For my card, I used the Stitched 3x4 Journal Die. I added a little gift card pocket to the card by using the Tag Gift Pocket Die. I stamped the "Happy Birthday To You!" from the Celebrate Good Times set onto the front of the gift card pocket and attached my ice cream cone, also from Celebrate Good Times. The ice cream cone was left over from a previous project. I try to always cut extras so I have them on hand in a pinch. 

Here is a picture of the back of the envelope, so you can see the closure:

Total time for my project, from start to finish, was under 19 minutes! 18 minutes and 29 seconds to be exact :)

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!
