That is exactly what happened to me. I made a card that was exactly as I planned but then I decided to start again. That was on Tuesday. Here it is Friday evening, I missed the 25 minutes of sunshine today for my perfect photo because I couldn't decide if I liked the stem stamped directly on the card or stamped onto the die cut stem and adhered to the card. The second option won. Here is my card for this week, but if you want to see the rest of the story keep reading along in this post.
I created the burlap flower after watching this video on You Tube by Lorinda. I use Papertrey's Friendly Flower Die. It actually came together pretty easily.
For my final selection I wasn't sure whether to go with the stem stamped on the white, or the stem stamped on a card stock die cut. Both are lovely but the plaid stem stamp showed up better on the white. Ultimately, the card stock stem popped out more on the card. It could be on white as a feminine card or on card stock for a more masculine card. What do you think?
This is the card originally created for this week. The designer paper I have had for a few years. It is from Bo Bunny's Anna Sophia line. Once assembled it was a lovely card, but the colours were a bit to muted for me. I did really love the Mat Stack 1 die cut stamped with the Mat Stack 1 frame. I added a bit of Ripe Avocado ink to the flower to make it stand out, but it was a bit too much.
