I’m gonna have to keep it short and sweet this week.
I had a lot of fun making this card. With the challenge to use a color scheme from the mat stack I’m using this month, this card obviously had to be very boy-themed. I grabbed a couple sheets of the mat stack and started browsing through my embellishments for something that would match. I thought about going with a travel theme, so I started looking through that file. When I found the “Adventure” mirror, it totally turned my idea inside out, and this is what happened instead:
Isn’t it cute? The saying comes from the Pixar movie “Up”. If I could go back and make the card again, I would switch the order of the mat stack pieces and go circles, stripes, circles, stripes instead. I thought it would be cute to have the circle letter stickers of the bottom word kind of go with the circles on the cardstock, but they get a little lost. I think the contrast of the circle letters on the striped cardstock would be better. And I think the OUT letters would have looked cool on the circle cardstock instead of the striped. Oh well, live and learn, right?
I don’t know why I never think to use all my letter stickers. I have so many! I’m going to have to try to remember them more.
That’s it for this week! Ttfn!
