Continuing on with Day Five of the Clean and Simple Online Card Class…I took on the challenge of the Laura Bassen card. Laura always does an awesome job of blending colors to make awesome jobs!!!!
I actually took her class on Craftsy and would highly recommend it to those who want more of those type of techniques.
It warmed my heart to hear her say that sometimes she does a card over and over again. I feel so rushed to finish a card that I let it go with all the messy stuff. Funny how we perceive that all cards they make as being perfect every single time.
The first thing I did was pull out my baby wipes to notice the little clouds on the sheets. Oh dear why did I not have plain old cheap ones. LOL I did find some handiwipes to use on top of the nice cloud laced puffy baby wipes to make the card.
I have a confession. I rarely get re-inkers. So I was stuck, then I remembered that I had a ton of the Stampin Up! re-inkers from the old consultant days. Yeah, most of them worked. Sadly some had dried out!
I was going to punch a hole in the middle of the card but since there was a lot of white space, I thought the print would get lost. So I decided to add a tag like sentiment. At first it was going to be a strip across the card, but dang, that sentiment is large!!!
Finally settled on a velum tag and the green tag with some cording. I love how this stamp is suppose to look like a written note made with a calligraphy pen.
