This is the other card we made in the stamp club. We CASEd this card on Pinterest, but changed the color and used ribbon instead of twine. I liked the simplicity of it! The card above is the sample I made to show the ladies.
Unfortunately, when I was demonstrating it, I had a boo-boo. You'd think, after all these years, I'd remember to look at the stamp to make sure it's inked up completely. Nope....apparently I still have to learn things the hard way!
My idea to fix it was to stamp another image, color it, and pop it up on a mat with dimensionals, like this:
My downline, Sherry, had the brilliant (or was it diabolical?) idea to just cut the pens out and pop them up like this:
Luckily, the fussy-cutting was mostly somewhat straight lines, so it wasn't too hard. Otherwise there might have been some muttered cursing, LOL! Sherry gets to come to any of my classes or clubs for free, since she is my downline - that's one of the perks of joining my stamping family!
So, which version to you like the best? The original one at the top, the "fix" with the stitched oval mat, or the popped up fussy-cut pens?
