Why, oh why is cardmaking so straightforward one day and so challenging the next. The last card I made took maybe 10 minutes and looks exactly as I pictured it in my head. This card, not so much.
As you can see this is a Modern Mosaic card in Pool Party and Daffodil Delight with four equal circles along the edge. Except the Modern Mosaic didn’t look right so I exchanged it for Summer Silhouettes. And I added Island Indigo. But then the circles didn’t look even down the card so I went to three circles of different sizes from the Circles Collections Framelits. And I wasn’t really feeling the bright colors so I decided to add Crumb Cake to the Island Indigo and toss the other colors. Then the Summer Silhouettes image didn’t fit on the smallest circle so I put grabbed the Too Kind stamp set instead. Finally, I embellished the card with the Regals Candy Dots and 7/8" Natural Trim.
And here we are a Too Kind stamp set card in Crumb Cake and Island Indigo. Exactly what I intended to make today – NOT! And did I mention this card took way over an hour.
Please leave a comment and let me know that I am not the only one who experiences bad stamping days!
