30 Day Coloring Challenge #4: Day 12: Forever my Valentine Card

logo

Hello my craft-lovin’ friends! It’s day 12 of the color challenge and I am still at it. Yesterday was a long day and so I was unable to complete my card. So this morning I was on a mission to finish coloring my image and pull together a Valentine’s day card.

One of the fun things about this craft is that from time to time, you get faced with a mistake that you must find a creative workaround to make them work. Sometimes, It might be my color combinations don’t work as planned, sometimes, it’s a stamping error, etc. Well I printed up multliple digi images on Copic paper to color for various projects. Sometimes I print them up with space for me to incorporate a drawn background and other times, I lay them out so that I can maximize the amount I can fit on a sheet with the intention of fussy cutting them out after I color them. Well in haste, I forgot to print a test view to see if everything fit on the page. So the balloon on this image was clipped.  I don’t like to waste paper and products so as a rule I find a way to make it work for the project or use on another to avoid wasting anything.

day12aSo I pushed the imaged flush right and cut off a little more of the balloon to line up with the right edge of the card.  Problem solved!! I also designed two sentiment designs (love, forever) on my Silhouette and played around to ensure the digi when cut out, would fit nicely with the word. I used the print and cut feature on my Silhouette (yes I use a Cricut cutting mat – don’t judge) to cut out the cards and then placed the image on each to see which sentiment I would use for this card.

day12bI ended up using the ‘Forever’ sentiment and matted it on American Crafts ‘Everyday’ patterned paper.

I think I might just use this card for my husband. That way I can still see her cute face around the house!

It’s really cold here (18 degrees) and I am thinking of stopping work early, making tea and grabbing my book and heading to my reading nook for a little comfort.

I will be back tomorrow for day 13!

Have a lovely weekend!
