Have you ever made a card and after it was completed, posted on your blog and sent on to the recipient, you wished you had done it differently? I do that many times, sort of like when I think of something I should have said if only I had thought of it quick enough. Today, for the Papertrey June challenge I am going to do a little Before and After challenge. For the May Papertrey Ink Blog Hop I made this card:
I liked it. Was satisfied with it, except...I didn't like the chopped off look to the doily. I wished I could have a do-over, so that is what I did.
Can you notice the changes?
I used the whole doily this time, just let it extend a bit over the edge of the card. I cut the gingham layer a little bit narrower, so more of the brown card base shows and rounded the cardbase corner. It seems more balanced this way. I changed the flower image and added some glitter to it. I tied some bakers twine around the images and added the cute little gardening tools for a little bit more interest.
I am much more pleased with this card overall and since I enjoyed my little Before and After experience, I am challenging my Posse friends to do the same. Just pick a card you liked but wished you had done something just a bit different to it. Link it below with Mr. Linky and show us your improvements!
