Wednesday - Hump Day - Scrap Day
I was talking at the shop last night about declaring a theme for blog posts on certain days of the week. Like dedicating Wednesdays to Mona and the art of using your scraps to make cards. It's a recent resolution of hers. Sounds like a good idea, huh?!
So here's the 1st of the Wednesday / Hump Day / Scraps Day posts. It's a card I made from some scraps from a Paper Wishes card kit a couple of years ago. Notice the bottom scrap wasn't quite enough to cover the 5.5 width of the card so I centered it and then aligned the other scrap to math. I used some scraps to cover the chipboard letters.
I like the card but the only thing I wish I had done differently was to print the sentiment on the computer or use a rub on. I just don't like my handwriting and especially on the front of a card. I know all the scrapbookers say that you should learn to love and preserve your handwriting, which I kind of agree with, but I'm not so sure it applies to cardmaking. What are your thoughts???
