This was going to be a single-layer card until I stamped the sentiment crooked. How does that happen with clear stamps? I think it must be kind of like bowling. I know what I am supposed do to get the ball to hit the pins just right. It just doesn’t always work out that way. My brain gives the order. My arm does not listen. In bowling, if you don’t get them all the first time, you get a second chance. If you are willing to change your plan, there is often a second chance in card making, too. For this one, I straightened my sentiment by trimming, added a mat, and saved the “spare.”
Materials & Tools: Cocoa and Stampin’ Up Crumb Cake cardstock; Holiday Red, Cocoa, and White Daisy Pigment ink pads; Papertrey Ink Out on a Limb and CTMH Peace on Earth stamp sets; Speckled Background stamp (retired).
A Slice of Life: The party last night was fun. Our friend was surprised and delighted, and it was nice to have the opportunity to see some people I had not seen for quite some time. Today, I stayed in and took it easy. With temperatures in the teens, it is cold here. It’s snowing this evening. Maybe it will stay this time.
Whatever it was you did today, I hope it was enjoyable, restful, or exciting – whatever you needed it to be. I will be talking to you again soon!
