This week I took a chance with Global Design Project. You know in your head when you think something is going to work out, and then it doesn't? That was how this challenge went. Anyhoo, this week, the GDP gave out this sketch layout.
What I loved was the two layers of paper, but really, what caught my eye, was that swirl behind the greeting. In my head, I planned on doing a whole llama thing. The short, I couldn't figure it out. I didn't own the right llamas, nor the right embossed folder. It just didn't work. After scrapping that, I decided to go with a much more simple floral look. Unfortunately, the back embossed paper doesn't really show, which felt a bit wasteful. Nevertheless, here's my two very similar results:
It's all just a bit simple. The die cut comes from Shapeabilities Woodland Wreath Etched Dies by Spellbinders. The left embossed folder is from Spellbinders as well, while the embossed folder from the right is from Anna Griffin.
I struggled to come up with my own saying, so I settled with "Just for you." When it comes to the "Just for you" greeting, I made that with my brand new Create Colop E-Mark. It was my first time using the printer (I just received it yesterday, and I was excited to use it).
Here's the other version with the Anna Griffin Emboss Folder. What I do like about this design is the asymmetrical circle on the symmetrical background.
And just as a reminder, here at DannysCards, I'm running my own card contest with the theme Christmas in July where you can win a $10 Michael's coupon.
