This was a "homework" assignment from the Pattern Play class that I took last week. Pretty much like what happened when I was in school and was late with my homework! Sigh! I finally decided to buckle down and see if I could manipulate some of the pattern pieces like they showed on one of the videos.
This turned out to be a CASE of one that was on the video but figured that was ok since I didn't know what I was doing. I changed the patterned paper, embossing, and image - but otherwise it's close to the same. I used some patterned paper from DCWV called Linen Closet. It's gorgeous paper (some with glitter on it too) but I had absolutely no card stock to match it. I didn't realize this though until I got all the strips of paper cut out!!! Figures! Anyway, I put all the pieces together and this is what came out - not perfect, but at least I got all the strips on the card.
I picked this SU image to use and then added the "welcome, little one" and got to thinking......this is pretty tacky putting a HIPPO on a baby card!! I mean, I sure wouldn't want some brand new mother or dad to think that I thought their baby was as big as a Hippo! LOL! I think maybe I need to change that sentiment to Happy Birthday or something!
Thanks for stopping by..........
