I started out making a surprise message door card then goofed and adhered to the wrong place and messed up the front panel. I started over to do it right but I was not going to waste the other card. I’ll show you both cards and you will agree There Are NO Mistakes in Stamping!
This looks like any other card except the flap with the bow opens up. Then you open the card to find…
Another little flap that opens up where your message is. I have always liked this technique and decided it was time to bring it back.
Now…what I did with the first card.
Where I messed up the Whisper White panel on the first card I covered with a coordinating DSP and also added a decorative piece inside the card. It was kind of plain so I added the doily, Garden Green circle and popped up the sentiment on Blushing Bride in a scallop circle. I was really liking the way it turned out.
I had to add a sentiment inside so just a plain Happy Easter worked along with the strip of DSP. All in all I am quite pleased with the card that got messed up. 🙂
Items used to make these cards:
Stamp Sets – Blessed Easter (retired), Delightful Dozen (retired)
Ink – Rose Red, Memento Black
Paper – Whisper White, Garden Green, Love Blossoms DSP, Blushing Bride
Accessories – Doily, 2 1/2″ Circle Punch, 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch, White Satin Ribbon
Remember…the next time you goof DON’T throw that card away…think about how you can salvage it.
Until my next post – Happy Stamping!
