The jury’s out… something is wrong but I just can’t put my finger on it! Not sure if it’s proportions or if it just needs a pretty double loop bow! So, today I’m asking for your help… what would YOU do to improve this Christmas Card?
LOL, I made this card when designing cards for an upcoming Christmas Card Class. Not totally happy with the overall design, I pulled the card from the Christmas Card class and substituted another.Embossed Vellum Card Stock was attached to Brushed Silver card stock, secured on the right using multipurpose glue strategically placed and covered up with rhinestone basic jewels…. and on the left using the medallion shaped sentiment.Embossing along the bottom edge of the card was cut using the large scallop edgelit… which in turn revealed a narrow strip of silver glimmer paper.A large doily die cut, punch layered snowflake die cut and brad accent the sentiment from Petite Pairs found on page 134 of the annual stampin’ up catalog. I really like the detail in the doily die cut and contrast of brushed silver card stock with silver glimmer paper. Still, something is missing… Is it a double loop bow? What do you think?
See you tomorrow with a pretty (successfully constructed) Christmas Card! I hope you’ll stop back by and look forward to reading your comments and solutions
Thanks for your online orders, and have a fabulous day!
