It's Tuesday - Time for the cartridge of the month exploration. This month, I'm pulling out an old one, Stamping Solutions. I loved this cart when I first bought it, but have really forgotten about it with all the newer ones. I'm going to tell you right from the beginning - I am not in love with this card! I am going ahead and posting it because I figure I'll show you my good projects along with my bad ones....ha ha! That way you know the real me. =)
Every cut on the card is from Stamping Solutions. The base is the shadow for the scalloped oval cut and I welded two together on my Gypsy.
Originally, I had cut "thinking of you" (word art on this cart) to put in the center of the card, however, it just looked...off. So I took it off. And put it back on. And took it off again. You get the picture! I finally decided it looked better without it, but now it looks odd in the center of the card. Now you see why I'm not too pleased with it! I added the stamp "friends" on the lower right and then moved my stamp and messed up the "s" on the end of the word. Things just went downhill the night I made this card. =) The card base was cut at 3.75".
One thing I do like - the flowers. I cut 5 of each flower and just layered and scrunched them. The flowers were cut at 1.50", 1", .75" and .50". I cut all the leaves the same size at 1.25".
I forgot to hide the circle in the center of each flower (with my Gypsy) before cutting, so I had to cover those up with pearls.
This poor little sad card! I really thought it had potential but it just didn't make it. Oh well! I'll try again tomorrow. Until then, have a fabulous evening!
