Hugging has no unpleasant side effects and is all natural. There are no batteries to replace, it's inflation-proof and non-fattening with no monthly payments. It's non-taxable, non-polluting, and is, of course, fully returnable. ~Author unknown
Today is day 4 of the Phoenix Paper Crafters Create Daily Challenge located HERE and I am playing along best I can this month.
For my day 4 project I did not make another Christmas Card but I’m sure there will be more in the future as I have lots Christmas Type bits & pieces to use!
Anyway … I seem to have a terrible problem dropping ink pads on finished cards. I have no clue why but I guess I have about 10 cards sitting in a pile waiting to be checked over to see if I can salvage anything of of them
My card today was actually made for a challenge last year. (You can see the original post HERE). I had made it with someone specific in mind and while I was getting the stamp for the inside inked up, I hit the pad just right and yep … there it was, splat! Sometimes I get lucky and the mishap can been swiftly and easily covered with no one but me the wiser, but not this time!
Needless to say, I was not happy so set the card aside for a later recovery effort and here it is.
The card was a 5 x 7 card so I had to trim quit a bit off the top and along the right side to get the ink streaks off. I had a bit of the original DP I used to die cut the tea cup and sentiment so it made a great layering piece.
