Happy Friday! I had a little bit of time today to make a card for Unity's Friends with Flair, but I had a major creative block. I had a concept, but it took me four tries to get the stamping right. Ugh. Then, I went to add some ink around the edges. If you've seen my cards, you know that is not something I do often--I ended up grossly over-inking the card. Double ugh. I thought about throwing away the card at that point, but decided to try misting the card. It looked like a wet, old newspaper, so I threw it away.
A few hours later, I went to try and make a new card, but it occurred to me that I should look at the old card to see what it looked like dry. Now I rarely go fishing through garbage cans, but in this case, the card was right on top and therefore not too gross. And, much to my surprise, it looked okay (at least salvageable). I stamped the sentiment, mounted it onto another die cut to flatten it out, added some pattern paper and twine, and voila, my FWF card:
Way different than my normal happy and colorful cards, but it's a sympathy card for my dad, so hot pink wasn't going to cut it. I used Unity's With Sympathy store kit...love that set. The background paper is from the MME Stella and Rose line.
Thanks for looking! I so appreciate your views and comments...it means so much to me that you take time to look. Have a great weekend!
