There is something about the fact that a card only has a few elements that sometimes makes me work especially hard on those elements. This card I used a lot of different colors for just a few items on it. I wanted the books to really pop. I think sometimes it’s fun to do just that!
Straitining up my desk the other day reminded me of some things that I just haven’t found the right place to use yet. The ampersand die has been one of those that I keep looking at and just not having the click as to where it would work right. It finally found its place! Yay!
As soon as I saw this sketch it dawned on me that I knew exactly what I wanted to do! I don’t think that happens very often, I generally overthink things. I love how it came out! It should teach me not to overthink things, but I doubt that will ever happen.
This was actually a really fun card to make. Pulling out the red embossing powder I was so excited about for Christmas to use on this card to make a fun Valentine’s day card. It brought back a memory of a friends mom who was so savvy as to realize that if you hit after Christmas sales and get red and white items you are ahead of the game for Valentines.
