Happy Birthday (Vine Design)

by Kylie

Hi everyone, do you ever sit down to create with a clear idea as to what you want to do? Sometimes I do, but other times I have no idea! Today’s card came to me when I was creating the card I shared the other day using the Vine Design Bundle and I couldn’t wait to bring it to life.

Sadly, as happens sometimes, I couldn’t get it to work. I don’t know why! There are a couple of things you can do when this happens. The first is to walk away and come back to it later. Fresh eyes often help. I tried this and still, I couldn’t get it to work as I envisaged. So I moved onto the second option which is to talk to someone about it. I took a photo of what I had done so far, mentioned which parts were already adhered, and sent it through to my friend Melissa asking for help. Melissa immediately came back and recommended the addition of the Pastel Pearls to the centre of the die-cut piece. It immediately improved the design.

I had sat with this card for DAYS and couldn’t make it work as I wanted. Whilst this card will never be a favourite of mine, I am SO much happier with it. So, when you have struggled with your cards, don’t give up! Take a break! Talk to a friend! You may not totally LOVE the card at the end but someone will!

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