Back to the Drawing Board.....


Well, I was making this card for one of my DT's upcoming challenges (can't say which one!) the theme is 'no stamping' so I thought I'd go to town with a multi-layered Lettering Delights SVG cutting file. This is NOT a quick and easy card - there are lots of layers to cut and stick ,and some of the pieces are really tiny  (look at the girl's shoes) , so I had to keep searching for missing pieces and fishing them out of the bin (it's okay, no food waste in there, just sweet wrappers!) .

So I was just adding the finishing touches to this card when I went back to the brief to check something and , belatedly, spotted the words: 'No DP' !!!!!!!!!!

Yikes! How did I miss that?  I used a digital version of Echo Park 'Tis the Season' to add pattern to some of the layers!

So I can't use it for the challenge I made it for, so instead, I'm sharing it with you today. Back to the drawing board.

I believe you when you say this wasn't a quick make and yes, the shoes do prove it. A shame you couldn't use this as your DT project, but kind of lucky too as this card wouldn't have happened if you hadn't missed the no DP part. I love the look you've created here.

Hi Marina - this is a stunning card and it's such a shame it won't make it as your DT card. However it's perfect for our "Fun with Friends" challenge at Incy Wincy Designs this week - thanks for playing along!
