Well, I am a novice at using digitals but I did manage to do one with the colored image of Edward Elephant but I misjudged on the size. It was too big for my open circle dies so I thought I would use the only other circle sets I had that were enclosed in the center. They had bigger circles. Well, that did not work well. This image is supposed to have the sentiment printed around it but my die cutting with the bigger die took a portion of the sentiment off and it was all crooked. With the enclosed center I was not able to see exactly where to position it. So my only option was to fussy cut the sentiment off and make my card without it.
And, when I layered it on a dark green circle I see I did not get the image centered. Oh, dear! But I will show it anyway. I had a scrap of the pattern paper I had made with the digi shamrock from the set and colored it in and just added a strip of that for contrast.
Well, after this mishap I have decided that I need open circles of a bigger size. So I spent part of my afternoon perusing a web site where I won a gift certificate to and one of the items I have on order now is a new set of larger circle dies. Now if this was not a digital stamp I could have hand stamped inside a white solid circle but for an already printed design it just does not work well. Another reason I like the kind of stamps I can hold in my hands and control more.
I sort of lost my enthusiasm for making cards for a few days and spent some time watching movies with hubby over the weekend. And, we celebrated our Valentines day a bit early with a purchased meal. No cooking or dishes to do then. I also was gifted with a card and some Dove chocolates. We will share the chocolates. And, on Valentine's Day he made breakfast and made me a heart shaped pancake. Such a romantic fella I have! LOL I did give him a handmade card and also made him a special supper too!
I hope you had a great Valentine's Day as well. And, thanks so much for all who stop in to see what I am doing these days. I very much appreciate those visits and your lovely comments.
