Hello & Happy Wednesday Everyone!
We have a short work week this week...
Thanks to Easter being on Sunday... We get
4 days off... This is our last break before
School gets out next month! Soooo,
hopefully I can play catch up with many, many
things I need to get done this weekend!
I thought I would share one of the cards I made
for my son... He needed 2 Wedding cards and wanted
them both too be different... Sooo, I found a design in
the Silhouette Store... I started out making it like
the card shape... but.... started to run into trouble...
HOW?? You ask? Well... Heck I don't know... All
I do know is after 4 tries... I came up with a new game plan...
Basically, the trouble began when I wanted to cut the shape
without the dotted fold lines... I thought I measured it
correctly... so when I made my score lines.. it was off...
So I tried it again... same thing... tried one last time and
got it right.... I then proceeded to make the card.....
Started looking great... then *Me* being the "Must add More"
crafter that I am.... choose to add some Nuvo drops
to the necklace (which is NOT on this card) ... Well..
I had a miss step... and it got in the wrong place...
When I tried to fix it... well.... let's just say.... their was
NO WAY to fix it.... so then I had to remake the WHOLE CARD!
So then I decided to resize the card.. cuz I thought it
was too big anyway... Well... then came the score line mishap
all over again.... By this time.... You would think I would have
given up... NOPE! Not this stubborn chick! 😂
I finally decided.. SCREW IT! I'm making this a basic card
of 5 x 5 and I'm cutting off the original dress &
tuxedo and adding it to the card front of this new
5 x 5 square card! Yup... that's what really happened...
I tell ya what... Sometimes when we craft and things
just don't go our way... we really should just STOP!
Next time I swear I'll do that! (
