Thanks a Latte!

Oops! I made a mistake... a card-making faux pas. I was creating cards that had multiple layers. The inside of the card was supposed to have the same sequence of layers as the card front. I did the inside and glued it down. Then I started layering the outside. I had them all layered and ready to adhere to the front of the card when I realized I'd reversed the white and black layers. Being a bit OCD (eek!) I had to start over. Fortunately, I hadn't added the image yet, since it was going to be popped up off of the card.

sooooooooooooooo... what to do with the mistake??? Make a card with those layered pieces, of course.

Here it is:

I added the black top note piece (so it wouldn't look too much like the card I'm remaking). Oh, and I turned it vertical while the other card plan is horizontal. I added a different image and sentiment, too.

I like it!

This is just beautiful, Jeanette! So classy and I love the way you used color and patterned paper to turn this into a seasonal themed card, even though the stamp could be used any time of year. Beautiful work, even if it was a faux pas. Sometimes the best creations come from mistakes, and this is certainly one of them!

Cute card Jeanette. I really like the colors and can't wait to see the card that this is "modeled" after....................
