Daring cardmakers - my first challenge!
I've finally done it... I've finally made a card for daring cardmakers
It might not seem very daring to you, but to me it's a big deal. I've never been a cardmaker. Never really yearned to be one... but lately I've been thinking about trying it out more and more... Plus I'm really determined to start using some of this stash up. I have so many scraps etc, and i'm starting to think it's obscenely wasteful... sooooo..... I thought I'd make a start and join a challenge. I know I have a lot to learn.
Todays lesson learnt was, if you want to do faux stitching on elements, do it before you pop the thing with foam pads. Really - make sure you do that. Trying to do a straight line on it once it's stuck up on those things is nigh on impossible... it was for me anyway. More lessons to follow no doubt;-)
You had to make a 'jacket/wrap of some kind.. and I chose vellum (Yikes! I told you I was using up stuff!), and punched the stars out to match the theme. It's ok, I'm learning and I don't hate it :-)
