For the PTI Time After Time challenge, I went back on my blog to some of my earliest
posts that were labeled "cards" (before I started making cards, I was primarily a scrapbooker.)
I found this post, dated four years ago, in August 2010, where I shared four cards that I made.
Truthfully, looking back, I don't love them, and definitely feel I've grown as a card maker
in the last four years -- thankfully! LOL!
So, anyway, I decided to remake some of these cards, starting with this one:
Okay, it's pretty cute! But quite different from what I create now.... not so much in style, per say.
I sill love using patterned paper & stitching on my cards.
But the dinosaurs were fussy cut from patterned paper (which isn't something I do very often anymore) and the sentiment is computer generated.... and I'm wondering how I cut out that nice speech bubble.... it could have been printed on the computer, too, and cut out by hand.
Or maybe I rounded the corners with a corner rounder....
Well, anyway, onto the remake....
I used a new American Crafts DIY 6x6 paper pad that I picked up a few days ago
at Hobby Lobby for my background, which I die cut using one of the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Border dies.
I stamped the two foxes onto card stock (soft stone & classic kraft) and paper-pieced them.
I die cut the flower using the little flower die from PTI's Flip Flop dies and added a Pretty Pink Posh 6mm Sparkling Clear sequin for a little sparkle.
The speech bubble was die cut using a Simon Says Stamp speech bubble die, which I made shorter
by diecutting it twice.
The sentiment is from Reverse Confetti's Lots to Say stamp set.
Thanks for looking!
