My youngest had on the cutest outfit yesterday and about half way through the day the thought popped into my head, "hey, those colors would be great on a card!" You know you're in too deep when every day sights make you think of card designs!
It wasn't easy to cut and tape all of those tiny little stripes! It took me three tries to get the right width, I kept making the stripes too wide and they looked kind of strange, and process for adhering the paper (sticky strip!) Not easy to see in the photo but I also sponged Bashful Blue ink onto the top of the card and it created a soft, almost fuzzy look, just like the velvet of his outfit.
