Being a little stressed for time…I decided to do something I have never done before. I hate to do it, but there are only 24 hours in a day…and sometimes I just need more! I made this card for two separate challenges…I know what you’re thinking…lots of people do that all the time, but hey, I’m not lots of people and I just don’t do it…There’s nothing wrong with it, it’s just not my thing is all.
So Cath over at Moxie Fab World challenged us with playingcards…hmm, that gave me a little pause…never tackled something like that before.
And then there was this great sketch over at Lilypad Cards (everyone knows I puffy heart a sketch challenge!)…
If you have been following me here or on the DeNami Addict site, you know I LOVE making my own background paper. I decided with this card to take it a step further and make the cards too! I was going for the whole “card suites & harlequin / heart” romance thing….
I made my “playing cards” from a EK tag punch (I just cut the top off and rounded 2 corners for a little flair) and stamped them. They are lifted up on pop dots as is my sentiment. I think it turned out nice for not having a red ink pad, I used a marker to color in my stamps, the small ones are usualy no problem, I do it all the time, but I was worried about that large harlequin border. I really wanted to add glitter to all of the red hearts throughout the card, but as with most of my cards lately it’s designated for OWH and we just can’t add that little extra bling...just use your imagination and pretend all my little red hearts sparkle, mmkay? Hope ya liked it :)
Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think....good or bad....or even better - what would you have done differently??...crafty minds wanna know!
