Here's my card for the April Fool's Day Boo Boo Blog Hop. You can find all the details about the hop at djkardcreations blog. I didn't notice the goof until after I had photographed the card. And, normally, I would have fixed the card before posting it. But then I remembered the blog hop!
Do you see the goof?
Are you wondering why I used peach as the contrasting color?
So, this is what happened....
I am on the design team at Tuesday Throwdown Challenge. This week's theme is 'add lace'. We were sent some lovely samples of lace from Ribbon Resource and I got to work making my inspiration cards. Usually, I make more than 1 and then decide which to post.
This card didn't make the cut.
I loved this beautiful lace trimmed ribbon and knew I had some gorgeous Graphic 45 paper that it would complement. Thinking the lace bordering the velvet would be equally pretty bordering the card, I set to work dissecting the ribbon and gluing the lace to the edge of the card. What I neglected to do....
was flip the card front over before adhering it to the peach card base and completing the card.
Isn't the flip side of this paper beautiful?That's the side that should be showing under the bow.
The peach card base works with this side.
Now...the question is... do I try and lift the card front, the bow, and the sentiment and reglue it the proper way? or do I add a strip of something to cover the cut edges of the lace?
While I am still trying to decide, I am entering this card in the April Fool's Big Fat Card Boo Boo Blog Hop, where I can take my rightful place among other crafty boobs.
There are already 20 crafty boobs in the hop.
I received such nice comments and encouragement from all the boobooers at the Hop, I thought I'd try fixing my card. You can see it here.
