Yeah, it's one of those days. Two posts in one day!
So what happens when By the Numbers die collection meet Star Prints at Euna's place? You get a card. Duh. Sorry, that was a lame joke. It's just one of those days.
I had this realisation the other day that I really don't have much masculine cards. My good friend's birthday was last week and I couldn't believe I could not find a suitable card amongst my stash to give him! Anyway, I had to cook something up that was pretty average on the spot, but he appreciated it ;)
So here I am on a mission to make cards that may be more suitable for guys. Something less pink, less pastel and less flower-power it is.
I'm actually very happy with this. I had this piece of cardstock I had rounded the corners of, and it's just been sitting there in my pile forever. I just didn't know what to do with it, and voila! I just knew what to do with it today. Don't you just love it when that happens?
Just a close-up view to show you what an amazing job foam squares/tapes can do. They're magic! Lol. I'm waiting for my Star Punch from my last order, but it seems to be doing a world tour atm *sigh*
Btw, was anyone wondering what happened to my bed (where my cards are usually photographed)? It's still there. But I've devised a better way to take photos in the evenings when I have poor lighting. I have this big A2 sketch pad - I open it up and set it up on my desk - with one side leaning on the wall - to use as a backdrop. And my desk lamp uses fluorescent light so gives a good enough lighting for the photos. The result is what you see above. I just saved myself $45-60 for the photo tent (yay more $$$ for stamps) :D
Thanks for coming again! Now off to do some work!
