before and after...

Last weekend I posted this card...


I love the use of the negative die cut panel but I don't know....the size was bothering me....it's 8.5 x 5.5...ugh, I don't like making big cards....I was suppose to make a big card for my boss's boss's boss...for her birthday.  I came up with a different idea for a large card but still wanted to use that fab vintage fabric.


So here it is......made over...funny how lighting can make a difference in colors eh?  I used the same Stampin' Up Basic Gray in both versions:


Ahhh....much beh-tah.  This little card is 4.25 x 4.25.  The top Basic Gray panel is on glue dots and foam tape....the sentiment is ala EAD Designs Co-Branding Paper Smooches Birthday Sentiments Rub-Ons.

I'll be back tomorrow with the larger birthday 'card' that I designed.

So it's not just me who sighs when requested to make a biggie card then? I always say good things come in small packages and your smaller version of this card certainly packs a cutie pie punch! Love the use of that fabric!
Hugs,

Another fun card, Amy! I wondered if your first card was blue. I am running out of steam here, going to use the day to re-charge. Have a good one.

I can't get over how much the lighting changed those colors! I like both ...I lean toward big cards, but I can see how the small card makes the focal point pop here. ;)

I know that problem once light pink became dark pink and it changes your work, but still this is a beauty!
