Advice Please




I had a great plan in mind for this card when I started it, and knew just how it was going to go together. So I did something that I almost never do, and that is glue things together before I had laid it all the way out. Well, my great plan didn't work, and now I have an empty spot on the card. What do you think I should put in that spot? Everything I have tried is either over kill or just yuck, kwim? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

  1. I would use painters blue mask and edge the white panel (not on top but sides and bottom) and then I would just keep stamping that flower, with second generations towards the outside. I think it will be beautiful!! I already like it a lot!! :)

  2. Ribbon with a knot or bow. If you can't tuck the ribbon under the edges just cut it straight and glue . You could do three knots side by side under that saying. It is difficult to explain instead of showing. ( : Keep the straight across ribbon idea - and either do the knots or tie a bow onto your straight ribbon. Hope that makes some sort of sense. ( :

  5. How about a nice piece of ribbon with a bow in that empty spot. Or you could try three buttons the same color as the flowers? I am sure you will figure it out, and those flowers are just so lovely.

  8. Trudy I would let nature be the guide, either something resembling long slender leaves or grass. Think of a field of wildflowers and how even the tallest blossoms always seem to have grasses swaying in the breeze around them. It would add just a little movement to the card!

  9. Personally the "white" space to me is fine. Sometimes we have a tendency to fill the whole area and overdo it. The background does give great texture. If you feel you must add something maybe some sheer brown ribbon across the bottom.
