29 Again?

When I buy things I force myself to use them before I put them away. One of my recent purchases was a 6x6 pack of Fancy Pants Trendsetter papers and, breaking with tradition, I also got the coordinating sheet of stickers, some flair and some tags.

So I have no idea why I did what I did, but here's the card, then I'll explain:

One of the pages in the paper pack contains images of tiny tags, so instead of just taking one of the tags I bought, I cut out the tiny tags to use here instead. I like to take the difficult route, apparently. But they are cute, non? :)

I wanted to contrast the red dots so I cut a strip of the striped paper, then decided it was too TOO, so I cut a strip of just the dark blue stripe and covered it up a little. Yes, strips of stripes.

Then I decided the card was too boring, so I added some black Liquid Pearls to selected dots on the top part of the card. Deep dark secret: This is the second attempt at the dots. The first one went fine until I forgot it was wet and smeared it. Sigh.

I tied a piece of skinny black ribbon through the holes I punched in the teeny tiny tags, then stuck them down with some dimensional adhesive.

I think it turned out okay.

I'm going back in to see what else I can concoct. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. My, you are on an irreverent roll today! This card is adorable and your thin strips are very even!

  2. I love your irreverant cards and I;m glad to see them making a comeback.


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
