Have you ever made a card and just didn’t like how it turned out? Here’s the card that just didn’t do it for me…
It’s okay but that’s what’s wrong…it’s just okay. Well, I hung it on my desk right in front of me, so I had to look at it every day. I looked at that card for two weeks until I ran across the Fall-To Layout #64. That’s what was wrong! The elements are great…the layout was just all wrong. So, I disassembled the card, cut down the Rich Razzleberry panel, added the sentiment (from Season of Joy) and a panel of the black polka dot Night & Day Specialty Designer Series paper (you can find it in the Holiday Mini Catalog). I absolutely LOVE this card now! What a difference a good layout makes! Isn’t this much better…
The Razzleberry panel was background stamped using the small stamps in Delightful Decorations. The ornament (Delightful Decorations) is stamped on Basic Black cardstock using Platinum Shimmer Paint that I had sponged directly onto the stamp. It’s punched with the new Ornament punch and layered on a Basic Black ornament to create a shadow effect. The ribbon is Whisper White Taffeta ribbon that I altered by sponging on Platinum Shimmer Paint. Just allow it to dry thoroughly before using it on a project. You can heat gun it to quicken the drying process.
So, the lesson here…don’t toss it…call a Do-Over! Sometimes, it’s just a simple as the layout. Let me know what you think. I love your comments. I hope you’ve been inspired to never give up.
