I cheated. I did. When I saw this challenge at The Friday Mash-Up:
glitter paper FAIL, I started rummaging through my 6x6 pads and re-discovered my Memory Box Butterfield 6x6 pack. Once again, I was shocked and amazed at the pretty papers inside. Especially three pages with ... wait for it ... a star burst scene. A WHOLE SCENE! All I needed to do was trim the paper and stick it on a card base.
I made three of these:
Okay, since I cheated on these, I'll make another one with the star burst technique they link to. I can be good.
Oh, and this qualifies as yet another OWH semi-FAIL. Yep. I liked these paper so much, I opted to leave them square to use as much of them as possible. Guess what? OWH prefers A2 cards (easier to ship, fits in the boxes better, etc.), but they will still take these. Sigh.
In other news, I plan to get a great night's sleep tonight. It is finally Fall here weather-wise, and I'll have that window open to let in as much of it as I can. :)
Thanks for stopping by!

That may be a little cheating but I think it's called efficient. It's meant to be sometimes.ReplyDelete
I love square cards, and this one is so purty!!!!!! LOVE the star burst!!!!!ReplyDelete
I wish it didn't cost extra to mail square cards, I've seen so many pretty ones, this one included! I don't think it's cheating, it's not your fault the paper was already printed that way ;-)ReplyDelete
That's funny - you confessed! I was gonna say, wow, great starburst job! The colors they used for the sky are really great. Thanks for joining the Friday Mashup this week.ReplyDelete
I just love when the designer paper can do all the work. :) Thanks for playing along with my challenge at The Friday Mashup!ReplyDelete
