I was ready to go. I had the idea and the colors at 10 minute Craft Dash gave me my colors. Had a plan. Had my supplies out. Even cheated by planning/spacing my PC-generated sentiment ahead of time. What could go wrong?
7:36 later (including my through-the-house-reverberating scream) this is what I had in my hand. A tear in my embossed-with-a-homemade-frame card front.......Too much pressure in my Big Shot sandwich. Forgot to do a trial run as part of my planning!
A phobia for this challenge I'm tellin' ya. But, I really, really, really would love to win some WPlus9 stamps. I've got it bad. I've even started a wish list over there! So I figured I would try again.
Two tutoring sessions later when I re-entered my cave ready to face my phobia once again, el cheapo me was wondering what I was going to do with the torn card. Ta da!
Now, I didn't even turn my stopwatch on, but I swear this took me less than two minutes. The square dies were out and I knew I had those two washi colors - right where they belonged even! Die cut. Taped. Done.
I love this card. This is my actual card for BFF. She's one year ahead of me so I always figure I can make snotty remarks. Love how the snottiness is disguised in the feminine, soft style of the card. HA!!!!!!!!!
Packaged up the card set I'm sending her is a cute glassine bag my Neat & Tangled stamps came in. How sweet is that! Wanna see the finished product?
