Ain’t it Always the Way??

I gotta say if I didn’t create a project with something goofed up….it just wouldn’t be mine. What can I say..that’s how I roll…lol

As I was working on this card for my Dad’s birthday I keep thinking something looked a little off. I just couldn’t put my finger on the issue. So I continued to stumble my way through construction. I was slightly miffed that it wasn’t working out like I was picturing it in my head. That being said when I was finished and I paused to inspect the finished piece I had to admit that all in all I was happy with how it had turned out.

I have included a picture of the inside as I put a bit of decoration to jazz it up a lil. Now you will also notice that there is no wording or anything on the inside. My Dad….well actually my Mom too like me to have the personal part on a separate insert. This of course allows them to reuse it…lol.

Finally completed I went to put the card into the envelope. That’s when I realized what that little “thing” that was off that I couldn’t figure out. Yes! I had made the card roughly 1/8″ to 1/4″ too long…ughhh(slapping forehead). So, I created a personalized envelope to compensate for my faux pas.

Mom, I know you get update notifications when I add a new blog posts… puleeeaaaaseee don’t show Pop the card just yet…lol. Thank you…..Love you….

As Always…Happy Crafting!

  1. Your secret is safe with me! Beautiful card and it wasn’t a problem that it was a bit large – clever gal just recreated the envelope! Hugs –
