Hello again. Here's another card that's been hanging around for a while to get finished. Thought I'd pop over to see what's going on at Stamping for Pleasure Rudolph Challenge. (I'm having the darndest time spelling Rudolph correctly...either leaving out the 'l' or putting in the wrong spot! <g>).
I stayed up way too late last night, then when I finally went to bed, just couldn't get my mind to settle down to sleep. It felt like one of the little hamsters in a cage...if you know what I mean!
This is another recycled Christmas 2012 card. All who know me, know that I'm nuts about cardinals. I diecut this image, but it was quite large. To get it to look 'right' I had to set it 'on point' (you quilters will know the term). I had diecut it, and used 2 different mats. Then I had the brilliant idea to use some gold duct tape (or is it ?duck tape?) over cardstock, emboss that. Well, it looked just fine. However it was Waaayyy too large to set on point. I trimmed off most of the gold tape edging, contemplated adding some red corners all round...just didn't look right to me. I whacked off the top corner, diecut a card shape, added a sentiment, and said "That's it". After I photo'd the card & saw it enlarged, of course I noticed the white part of the basecard on the edge. Grrrrr. This one may just go into a pile that I'll call 'lessons learned the hardway'. I still like the image, yay, even if I'm unhappy with the final result.
Let's all jump over to Stamping for Pleasure and see all the entries for this month. I hear there are prizes too! Cheers, and catch you later!
