My third sample from my Box of Cards (see Saturday's post here) started out with a goof that turned into a happy mistake:
Using the pretty gingham-like piece of Designer Series from the Retro Fresh paper collections, I trimmed the edge with my Big Shot and the Finishing Touches Edgelits. But I did it upside down and missed the pretty design! (yes, I'm woman-enough to admit my mistakes!) Of course, every mistake is an opportunity, and I adore how this one evolved...I took a piece of Very Vanilla trimmed with Finishing Touches the RIGHT way (!) and added it just below--a lucky error as it turns out, as this is just perfect!
Now for the focal point (although if it were up to me, I'd be focusing on that edge--can't get enough of how cute it is!!! But I digress)...
The sentiment was stamped in Coastal Cabana on Very Vanilla and cut using the Apothecary Accents framelits and the Big Shot, layered on Coastal Cabana. I added a butterfly to the front of the envelope and the inside of the card.
Another sample will be featured tomorrow...hope you'll come back and see it!
Let's get creating!
