I was going to call this post Craftastrophe Du Jour, but since the resulting cards weren't a total loss, I thought I'd stick with the OWH title.
I had my Basic Grey Lemonade paper pad out, so you'll be sick of it by the end of the day, but yes, I used it, starting with this project. I was following the new OWH Sketch:
Here's what I made, then I'll explain:
The second of two:
I just cut the papers into two sections for the front, and mixed-and-matched. The only fall-out was ... well, there really wasn't any. By leaving the teeny tiniest of gaps between the panels it even fit onto the card front without additional trimming.
The hearts in the middle circles were punched from two of the circles. I lined up the heart punch with the line where the papers met to get it even. AND, to get the sentiment to fit into the circles, I actually cut my Paper Smooches sentiment. I did. It's quite liberating, and way easier than masking.
When I tied the string onto the card front, I purposely did not nestle it into the groove between the panels. I embrace this craftastrophe!
In other news, this was way too much work to mass-produce. I think I'll use plain circles stuck onto the card front next time I use the sketch.
Thanks for stopping by!
