CAS-ual Fridays Challenge CFC124: Happy New Year!

Here are the details for the last CAS-ual Fridays challenge for 2013! 

Since the New Year starts with a countdown, lets count the minutes it takes to complete your project.
OPTIONAL: If you can do it in 10 minutes or less, you can play at 10 Minute Craft Dash too!

This is the card that I had in mind when I originally read the challenge, especially the ten minute part. I am a notoriously slow crafter sometimes, so the challenge of making a card in 10 minutes can seem daunting, but this came together so quickly. I die cut my cardstock using my silhouette as I knew I wanted the gold glitter to show through, but I also wanted to keep in clean and simple. I mounted the die cut panel with foam tape, along with the small middles to the letters and it was done. My time came out at 8.49!

I was then left with all the die cut letters and another piece of gold glitter card, so this is what I did and it took a lot more than 10 minutes!

 I individually pierced the tops of most of the letters, stuck on small foam pads and strung them with gold thread, finishing it off with a sequin at each end. I then took the pad off each letter and individually placed them one by one to get the right banner shape. I glued the threads to the inside of the card and it was finished!

Edited 01/01/14 - At the suggestion of Kimberly Wiener I am going to be bold and also enter these 2 cards into the CASology Cue Card - Party challenge, get me, 2 challenges at once ;)

Happy New Year and thanks for stopping by :)
