First WoW Card, revisted

Posted by Micah at 1:26 PM
Some of you may remember my first ever Warcraft themed card... I've sent out and sold enough of them that I had to make more! This is a good thing. I always said that if I had to make more I'd adjust them a bit.

In the game, World of Warcraft, you can pick up and complete quests that earn you rewards. A character that has a quest is shown with a large yellow ! over his or her head. When you've completed the quest that person then has a large yellow ? over their head, letting you know to come collect your reward.

On the original design I'd put an exclamation point on the front and a question mark inside... because of how quests work and the sentiment I chose, it made more sense to do it this way.

I used Barely Banana paper with Summer Sun ink. The stamped sentiments are from Full of Life and Congrats. All products are from Stampin' Up.

Sorry for the dim pictures, it's horribly overcast today! I think the weather is a contributing factor to the series of unfortunate events that occured while making this card. Things I learned today include...
  1. Even if you have a seperate embossing tray for your black powder, it WILL contaminate all other powders. Your white will never be white again, even if you didn't open it during the same project as the black.
  2. It doesn't matter how careful you are... black emobossing powder WILL smudge.
  3. You really do need an embossing buddy, the other crafters aren't making it up.
  4. If you're having One of Those Days and something could go wrong? it will.

Hey look! Another one of those nifty detailed shots! Now I just need a photo box!

That's actually really clever. Keep making them!
