Welcome to the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop this week. This week it starts with a woman who decided she would have a craft day, and because she is unwell it took all day to make this one card between naps and being in too much pain to do anything. This woman was quite happy with what she made. Shortly after completion of the card the womans children started returning home from school, the oldest Mr was nice enough to come in and say "Mummy that's really pretty!" this lad was lucky that the Mum had some chocolate in the fridge to reward the young man for his compliment when.... "A lot of people would think it is ugly, but I think it is nice!" said the Mr. Needless to say the chocolate was forgotten and the woman then sat there a wondered why she had spent all the time on the card.
How many of you have done this? Most of us I'm sure either from a child, partner or family member or friend. Or most commonly ourselves, we are our own worst enemy!
So I decided to make my 'Nice Card' into a blog post lol. I hope you think it is nice too. Now on with the show...
The stamp used for this card is from the Delightfully Detailed Set. I used a Pearlised Doilyand folded it up after cutting out the second ring so I could scrunch it down smaller. The Ribbon is the soon to be released Velvet Ribbon.
The base and one of the layers of cardstock is Very Vanilla , the other layer is Rich Razzleberry and in this instance I used my Share What You Love SDSP (yes I know shock horror I actually cut and used DSP by choice lol). I distressed the edges of each layer, including the card base.
If you look closely I actually cut into and frayed open the left side of the card base so you could peek at the little flowers stamped inside and also just to give it a little more depth. I used a sponge dauber with a little Crumb Cake to 'soften' the edges of all the layers and also on the doily as it was white and the rest of the card had Very Vanilla. I added a few of the Black, Faceted Dots to the front for a little more interest
