For my next FAIL, er, I mean project, I bring you glitter. Not the messy kind, no; this is in the form of awesome glitter paper.
I went to Mike's last night to pick up some Halloween paper, and I spied this piece of glitter paper on the strategically placed rack next to the Halloween stuff. I needed to own it. I envisioned easy-peasy birthday cards. So I ran home, sliced up the paper into 6 parts for 6 cards, then stopped. Here is a snippet of my thought process:
"Cool, glitter paper."
"Oh, wow, I've matched it pretty well to card stock." *pats self on back*
"Wow, this is too easy. It should be illegal."
"Crap, it's GLITTER PAPER! I cannot send cards to OWH with GLITTER PAPER."
FAIL. FAIL. FAIL.
So I set them aside and immediately lost my mojo. Everything I touched for the rest of Friday night and into Saturday morning became pretty trash. I was distraught. Then this afternoon I snapped out of it and went back in to salvage the glitter cards.
I started by selecting this sketch from CPS Card Sketches:
(whoot!) and had to cut two for the last two cards:
So now I have 6 shiny, glittery birthday cards, and I can't send them to OWH. Hmph. Oh, well, lesson learned. I guess I shouldn't tell you I have a second sheet of that glitter paper. Yeah.
I feel some snark rising to the surface. I think tomorrow will be a good day. :)
Thanks for stopping by!

So cute! And an abundance of glitter is never a bad thing. :)ReplyDelete
You could put them in a pretty box and give them away as a gift. Then play with your other piece!ReplyDelete
Don't you just love that CPS sketch! What a neat looking and fun card.ReplyDelete
Glitter paper is just too hard to pass up, I don't blame you one bit and I think the cards turned out beautifully.ReplyDelete
