This is the part where I hang my head and shake it miserably.
I made her a birthday card, and I DID take pictures of THAT!
It looks like this--
A layer of vellum that is adhered on the inside of the card, and then the patterned paper that serves as an overlay. There's also the flags, thanks to My Mind's Eye, and stamping (Studio G) and copic coloring, and some really nice leaf things I created with card stock, punches, and a bit of gold embossing powder. Oh yeah, and those cute little photo corner things. Jan bought me the punch, so of course, I had to use it on her card...
Those clouds should have NEVER looked like that. Okay, okay, they look really nice and all....
BUT! And this is a BIG but! Not to be confused with my own big butt....but I digress...
The clouds were originally meant to be a reverse die cut, showing some lovely patterned paper (also MME) behind, as you opened the card. However, my Dear Partner failed to understand the concept, and wrote his personal message ALL OVER the area that was supposed to be clouds! ARGH, I say! ARGH!!!!!!
Well, I stared at the dang thing for about 15 minutes before I came up with the solution. I did make good use of the time, heaping copious amounts of guilt upon said DP.
When I finally did come up with the solution, I quickly got it all together, and was able to tuck it into DP's luggage. Oh yes, did I mention the time crunch of the impending car to the airport that I had to beat? No WONDER I didn't get to take photos of the card set and box I made her.
Anyway. she loved everything, and no one was the wiser...well, no one but my little frayed NERVES.
I guess it goes to show that things are RARELY really ruined, unless the dog or cat or kids get hold of them. I have none of those at the moment, so no excuses for me! A little creativity goes a long, long way!
Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Thanksgiving to my US readers!!
