Enjoy Everyday Card - Ruby Rock-It Creative Team
My sister in-law's Birthday is coming up so I decided to make a quick handmade card to send to her. First I double checked with my brother in-law that her favourite colour hadn't changed and he told me it is now red, I thought it was pink, oh well. She is into positive quotes so I instead of the usual happy birthday I decided to look through my Ruby Rock-It and Bella stash for a quote that could work on a card.
I started by grabbing out various supplies I thought would suit a card for my sister in-law including Petals paper from Bella Red Gallery RG516, a red card base from Francheville Cards & Envelopes Primary box, some gorgeous Glitz Cardstock in Rouge GZ20, Cut-Outs paper from the Bella Mini Theme range Magic & Wonder MAW77, Fundamentals glitter gold paper doilies, a die from my stash, some flowers from my stash.
Petals paper down to fit and then die cut the Glitz Cardstock with my die.
Here is a not so secret secret of mine, I rarely plan my embellishment placement as my mistakes make that decision for me ;)
I adhered everything down with Helmar Acid Free Glue, positioning my die-cut as far over to the left as I could without the cut away part of my back showing as I wanted it slightly off centre.
I love these little doilies for card making and banners as they are a perfect size for smaller projects.
What did I say about mistakes informing my decisions.
I didn't get a photo of the original completed card as when I saw my mistake I had to act quickly and then I got caught up in adding bits to fix it.
It turns out my card base was back to front so my card was opening weirdly. The quote was the most recently stuck down item so thanking my lucky stars I used wet glue and it wasn't dry on that one item yet I carefully peeled it up and flipped things around so what was the bottom left is now the top right and glued my quote back down.
So don't panic when you make a mistake when creating, make the mistake work for you. :)
