Bold new year

 

Hello everyone!

I’m still confused about days…. Crimbo Limbo continues!  But I do know it’s not long until New Year’s Day and so it’s definitely time to focus on a few cards for that holiday!

For today’s card, I used the sketch from the current Less is More challenge and the fabulous Hero Arts infinity 12 point star dies with lots of glitter paper!

Whilst this card came together really quickly, I had a moment of self doubt and redid it in landscape rather than portrait, before changing my mind again! Thank goodness that I used the Kokuyo tape to adhere the stars – made them easily repositionable!

Julia shared a great Instagram post today about the trial and error that often go on before we share cards on social media and I remembered other comments from crafters that we rarely see things that go ‘wrong’. I think in 2018, I will share a little more about some of my card mishaps…. and maybe others will do the same….

While this isn’t an example of a ‘mishap’, it is representative of my crafty procrastination, which can be as much of a frustration as a crafty mishap, so I decided to share it!

And what do you prefer, portrait or landscape?

Anyway, I’m also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge (party) and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge (anything goes).

Thanks for stopping by!
