Do you ever have one of those cards that seems like a great idea in your head… you start to put it together, and it just doesn’t exactly work out like you were picturing. Then when you are done, you just don’t quite love the card – even though it looks totally fine to everyone else BUT you?
Well, this card is one of those for me. I made it AGES ago but something never quite turned out the way I was hoping – not that I could tell you what that something was, I just knew something was bugging me. So I set the card aside and moved on, and now, I can look at the card and start to like it again.
See, not bad…. actually has some fun parts to it really.
Tips for making this card:
- Tear the edges of the Crumb Cake cardstock for a more rustic look to your card.
- Wrap a piece of Blackberry Bliss ribbon around the front of the card and slightly under the bottom edge of your stamped sentiment. Then tie your bow with a DIFFERENT piece of Blackberry Bliss ribbon and attach to the ribbon on the front of your card with glue dots. Keeps it all nice and clean and smooth.
You can mix and match this same design with different colors and stamps for lots of fun different looks for your card! In fact, I actually rejected this card for my Convention Display Board submissions because I thought it was an almost identical design to this love card! If you don’t look closely they don’t seem the same, but check out the layers and elements and you’ll see what I mean!
