For every card I post on the blog, there are 2 or three that I don’t, usually because reality just doesn’t live up to the idea in my head. I realize that a lot of very creative and artistic people read this blog, so I figured that instead of just throwing out my “crap-fts” as I call them, I’d give them a chance to be fixed.
This is one of those cards. I had this idea kicking around in my head for weeks before I actually made the card. The lightbulbs are from a Sizzix die, and are (of course) covered in Glitter Ritz. The “cord” is elastic thread. I still love the idea, but the final product is missing…something. It just doesn’t look quite finished.
So what is it? Do I need a colored background? Textured? Maybe some pine needles or holly leaves stamped back there? Leave your suggestions in the comments. If I like your idea best I’ll make 5 copies of the new improved card for you to send out this Christmas.
