These cards (really card fronts) are a work-in-progress, unfortunately, and not finished cards. But I worked on them forEVER, so I needed to share.
Here is this week's OWH Sketch:
What's extra-cool about these OWH sketches is they come with measurements, so NO THINKING REQUIRED! Bonus!
Now, a few weeks ago I took a pack of 12x12 papers that I'd bought by mistake (What, that never happens to you? Yeah, right.) and hacked it up into 4x5.25 pieces, thinking I'd make them into cards once I found just the right sketch. Today I thought this sketch might be it, so I tried a few variations of an idea, hoping to find one that would work for a bazillion cards. Here's what I have so far:
Boring. No contrast. All grey. And the You is too high. Also, folding that banner was not something I want to do 40 times. Oh, and that polka dot strip is the back pattern on that paper; it's cut from a scrap.
Much brighter. So bright in fact, the You die cut in white got lost in all those dots, so I opted for Plan B, which was to put the YOU on the banner (flat this time) and stamp the rest of the message onto the white part. I think there's too much empty in the top of the polka dotted circle.
Third and last for today:
I think this color is almost dark enough for the You die cut to work. Still no contrast, though. I might need to color in a few of those polka dots or something. It needs a third color somewhere. Maybe a tiny red heart. I also considered making the You red or yellow or some other color. That could work.
I'm still not feeling the love, and it's important that I do, because I have all these papers left:
I told you it was a whole pack of papers.
Oooooh, I just had an idea! I'll let you know if it works out or not.
Thanks for stopping by!
