Remade card

Posted by Ruth at 9:01 AM
I wasn't happy with how my card from the Heat Emboss Resist post turned out, so I changed it up a bit. I switched out the ribbon and the design paper and then my upline, Leisa, took a really nice picture of it for me!

This also happens to be the card I'm using for my part in the "Thank You" card swap I'm hosting! Typically a swap is "5+1" or "7+1" where you make 6 cards, or 8 cards, but get one less back. The extra card is kept by the hostess. In the case of this swap the extra card is joining the donations going to the Ronald McDonald House here in Calgary, Alberta.

I'm really happy with the changes. I'm using Juniper, Sweet Leaf, White Daisy and Black as my colors and the design paper is from the Wings paper collection. The stamp is from Find Your Style, this month's Stamp of the Month.

Thanks for checking in!

I've also redone a few cards that I didn't like, and they usually turn out more likable.
The embossing on this card is gorgeous - great job!

I do the same thing sometimes with my cards. It might be one tiny thing but that I wanted to change but it bugs me until I fix it. Haha! I really like the darker paper you used on this one. It makes that gorgeous image pop that much more.
