Hope you had a lovely weekend. Here’s a card today that I’m really not too sure about.
I was feeling a bit strung out when I made this one and was going for a bit of a distressed vibe. But I know I don’t really do distressed too well, and grabbing bright and cheery papers and embellishments probably wasn’t the best choice.
I was hoping that I could come back to this card and give it a re-work but even a week or so later I’m still feeling ‘urg’ about it.
The main patterned paper is October Afternoon ‘Modern Homemaker’ 8x8pad, and it’s scrunched, inked (Distress Ink ‘Tea Dye’) then machine stitched to a panel. Fixed to a card blank, which I embossed – Cuttlebug ‘Swiss Dots’ – and added white doodling.
The flower is a couple of fabric blooms layered up and a button added, a hand-cut & scrunched leaf is layered behind, with Thickers for the greeting.
So what do you think? I don’t rate it, so I may have to dismantle it ‘for parts’ instead of sending this one.
Do you have cards like that – they really just don’t quite make the grade? Hmm.
Have a good day folks, Rx
