Today and have a bit of a remix to share with you. I was going through some old cards that I keep in little baskets in my craft room and I came across two that really needed a redo. So, instead of just letting these two fall by the wayside or go unused, I decided to rip them apart and give them both facelifts! Want to see?
CARD #1: I loved the colors and I actually liked the layout as well. But, what I struggled with was the fact that this card was way too big for any of the envelopes I had on hand. Why I created a 6" by 6" car is beyond me! So, it was time to rip this baby apart.
For the finished card, I focused more on simplicity. I have to admit, I did look for the patterned papers that I used on the original creation but they were long gone. I did love them all! I chose instead to go for a mostly white look with a wee bit of embossing. The good news? This card is an A2, which means I have a TON of envelopes that I can slip this card inside!
As you can see, I kept the little tag, the twine and button! If you want to see my original post for this colored up trio of Gerbera Daisies, you can check it out HERE. This image is a digital stamp set from Power Poppy.
Moving on to my second remixed card! As you can see, this is the front featuring the window and button enclosures...
which opened up to this.....
So maybe you have some cards that need a little facelift for one reason or another? Don't throw them in the circular file -- give them new life with a new twist or a new layout!
