Happy Birthday Masculine Card!

Hi Paper Lovers,

Happy Wednesday to you!  Do you ever have one of the those crafting days where your project doesn't seem to come together.  Well that's what happened to me.  I made this card for my dad's birthday next month, and I'm so glad that I made it early so I have time to fix it :)

The only reason I'm showing it to you, so you can see everyone has mess ups.  I really like the concept of the card, it's just became a mess!

I used a distressing tool on the background paper.  After I glued the ship together I added some silver liquid pearls.  That's when things started to go wrong.  I couldn't get them even and smeared some on the brown, so I tried to cover it with copics.  I think I can recut the brown to fix it.

Next problem...oops...I dropped the stamp!  I will be adding another piece of paper on the inside to cover it and restamp the sentiment.

You are so funny! I would not even have noticed any of your mistakes! Awesome card! The ship looks really cool on the burlap, and I love the frame!

Wouldn't have notice it. That is the beauty of being homemade. I think people appreciate those more than store bought cards anyway. Great job!!

Hi Liz!
You're so cute :) ....I love how you designed your card! I think it looks AMAZING! But I totally understand what you're talking about when something on your project doesn't turn out how you expected it to. I'm a perfectionist....and there are times when I just don't like how I added a particular embellishment or something. Someone else probably might not even notice it but because I know it's there, I end up redoing it. I think your dad will love your card just the way it is...I don't think it looks bad at all...everything your create always looks so BEAUTIFUL! Thanks for sharing! Have a wonderful day! :)
