Let's Make Easter Cards
It's been a while since I made anything with my subs copies of Let's Make Cards so I decided to have a bit of a play today. I don't usually get a great deal of inspiration from the actual magazine as most of the cards look too 'unbalanced' to me
Yes, I know....I Have A Problem.....lol
This card went wrong when I realised after sticking the backing paper on... that the card opened on the left hand side! *sigh* ... Idiot! ... so I had to cut the front off and stick it on a premade white blank card lol...
I think it's my favourite of the 5.. can't put my finger on why though :)
This one I made in my 'old faithful' way of 'wonky backing paper, some gems and a topper' lol....
I know...I just can't help it.... Clone Cards R Us ;)
This one I played about with for ages before it actually took shape.. I think it worked in the end... it even has ribbon on! Wey-heyyy hehe
These 2 I'd like to call 'My Thrifty Cards' ... I cut the rectangular cards for the above efforts into my 'usual and measured' square shape (after all.. Can't Be Having Irregular Card Shapes Can We?) and was left with little long cards... so I took a deep breath.... and Put Some Of The Topper..... Over The Edge
*pants heavily at The Huge Change Of It All and ends up feeling really faint*
I think the Thrifty (aka Cheapskate) cards actually worked rather well.. the second ones are on a slant as the backing paper was that way... so I told them they had to Work Uphill.... they didn't mind, I gave them chocolate :)
I hope you like them!
