Check some of the recent posting and see if you can identify the “sister” card to the ones you will see the next five days!
When I first started doing classes as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator I would cut cardstock for 10 even if I didn’t have 10 stampers coming to class. I considered it positive thinking! Hello, not the smartest thing I have done!! Well, because I always had extra “fixings” for cards I started re-designing with the same card elements. I found this to be a fun challenge! I have since saved some of these and have boxes of them out for my stampers. I try to encourage then to take a set up home and design a new card with it. The only requirement is that they need to bring it back for me to see. They keep the card they designed, I just want to see their work!
Well, now days I don’t cut for more than 1 or 2 extra for each class. That way I have an extra for the last minute sign ups and if I have to make one set up, that’s ok! I give them away as a thank you for ordering from me.
Enough yapping…..here’s my first redesign:The stamp set used is Walk in the Wild. I stamped directly onto the designer paper with Memento ink and colored it in with my Blendabilities. The original design was a fall card using the Holiday Home stamp set.
These cards are for a private party that I am having and they requested birthday cards that were mailable. When making cards they often get bulked up with lots of layers and embellishments. Well, Mr. Postman does not really like the chubby envelopes! So, if they don’t slip through a 1/4″ slot, you may end up paying extra to send your cards or the receiver may end up having to pay to receive your card.
Tune in tomorrow for the next re-design!
