sadly I have not had much time for card making this last few weeks and its taken me nearly two weeks to get this far and finally make another card! …Still one more card to complete before I decide which one to use for Hubbies birthday, I coloured the stamp well over two weeks ago…overall I'm pleased with the card although realised afterwards that rounding the corners was not a good idea after you've layered the papers; I should have done this before hand but didn't think about it, so its not perfect but we learn. It’s a z-fold card I think that’s right and my first one.. I like it…my only other niggle is I wish now I had layered the stamp with card but had decided to edge with my Copics but it bled, not sure why as it is the usual card I used for colouring with, so not quite the finish I had in mind… not to worry I did the same effect with the roses to bring it together a bit.
Overall I like the design and layout… I'm really enjoying using my birthday pressies; the glass cutting mat makes life so much easier and I love my Grand Calibur; although having a problem with some Joy dies I have which are red and are leaving die on my white pearl card once cut…not a good look for snowflakes!…any suggestions on how to either stop it happening or get any excess paint of the dies would be gratefully received have a wonderful week , I'm busy this week again so I don’t suspect I’ll get much card making;-(((…hopefully will manage another post though .hugs x
