Easter Greetings (Fable Friends)

by Kylie

Hi everyone, do you ever have an idea for a card but as soon as you sit down to create you just cannot get what is in your head to reappear on paper?  That was me with this card.  I knew I wanted to use the cute Fable Friends stamp set.  I also knew I wanted to use the Balmy Blue paper from the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper.  I thought the rabbit looked like Peter Rabbit and that was how I wanted to colour him.  I also wanted to keep the card relatively simple.  It all sounds like it is going to come together quite easily, doesn’t it?  Sadly, no.  I’m sharing what I ended up with….not because I love it but because I don’t love it.  I have always said I wanted this blog to share the good and the not so good.  Today’s card is the not so good part.

Here’s the card…

So where did I go wrong with this card?  Well, truthfully, in quite a few ways.  I think the colour scheme is more fitting for a new baby card and I could have used the sweet “Darling Baby” sentiment.  And while I was trying to go for simple I ended up with a very blocky design.  I should have broken up the gingham paper a little more perhaps with a solid piece of cardstock or even some ribbon. Still…sometimes things go a little haywire and as long as we learn from it, then that’s the main thing.

Don’t you think the rabbit is SO cute!!  I love it!  You should see some of the other cute critters in this stamp set!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you have a great day!
