Clean and Simple Cardmaking 2, day 7

This day the assignment was to make another one layer card. I really suck at this! It took me all nigt, I threw away four cards and kept two that I really didn’t like all that much but I was so frustrated with my creations that I gave up and went to bed. Actually I looked at the cards today and felt they was sort of ok anyways. Not great but good enough ;)


This was like the 5th card I made and I was not happy with the embossing of the words. But the design was ok and I kept going with (and in) circles. I made another card and accidently reached for clear embossing powder instead of white and liked the look of it even though that card was totally spoiled. I started on another one and it tured out ok.


I must say I love the effect of clear embossing powder on black cardstock. It looks great up close. This is as good as I could do with one layer cards. I give up. This is not for me! But it was a great challenge and it got me thinking a lot about the design before I made the card. Might have been a learning experience :)

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
