Birthday Card - Graphic45 Curtain Call

I struggled with this card for 3 days and finally gave up and this is what I ended up with...a piece of crap!

Supplies Used:
Graphic45 Curtain Call
EK Success Daisy Punches
Sheer Ribbon
Stampin Up birthday stamp

There really isn't much to this card. I think I had so much trouble because there wasn't many colors in the patterned papers and I was at a loss as what to do. I finally decided on accenting with a bit of lavender colored paper and came up with adding a flower. I will admit it does look a smidgen better in person than in the picture...but that is a very small smidgen!

  1. They have the border strips to this paper at my Tuesday Morning this week - I looked at it, but couldn't figure out how I would use them... It's difficult with no color. I think you did very well with what you had to work with. Maybe metallic gold with this paper? Or deep red?

  2. I think the reason you don't like it is the lack of color in the card base. You always use so many different colors/patterns, this one is just too plain to you! I'm still looking at these papers trying to decide how best to use them.

  3. Don't be so hard on yourself...just be sure to send it to someone who won't appreciate a handmade card so much!! Maybe a man, any man... :) For the record, I think it looks nice!

  5. I like it! I think you aren't happy because it lacks the multiple colors you normally use. I like black and white or black and cream cards.

  6. I like it, too! I think a jewel tone might have given you a bigger pop of color, which Linda pointed out your cards usually have... Maybe a bit more dramatic? is a good word? I do like the papers and the dimension and that way the patterns are arranged - It's very pleasing graphically. - KCM
