A simple idea...

Don’t you hate it when you see a really fabulous idea which completely blows you away... then you try it yourself and it looks like... well, it looks like this.

There’s a fabulous cardmaker out there in Blogland called Kristina Werner and every time she touches cardstock it turns to gold. So I had a go at making a card inspired by one of her designs, with very disappointing results.

But it uses retiring (and reduced!) Designer Series Paper so it’s now or never for the blog and here it is. It’s a very simple idea - but not stunning.

Anyway, moving on... it's my Moving Cards workshop tonight - if you've booked into this, see you later!

Cardstock: More Mustard
Paper: Haiku
Accessories: Die Cut Blooms, Earth Elements and naturals buttons, 5/8” Grosgrain Ribbon – Old Olive

  1. I know what you mean, this happens to me all the time. In your mind it looks fab and then you try to put it to paper and ....... hmm! But your card isn't bad you know, infact I quite like it. x

  2. I think you're too hard on yourself! It's a very nice card and looks like a K.Werner! CC
