Happy Accident

Today I made two cards celebrating amazing you.  I did not start out intending to create TWO cards.  I was only planning to make the one using the sketch from PCC 286.  I got everything set up, put the multipurpose adhesive sheets on my feedstock  and ran my thinlits through the bigshot.  Only then did I realize I'd made a mistake.  I ran them through with the thinlits on the wrong side of the cardstock so that if I removed the adhesive backing and stuck them to the card front, the would be backward.  So, I set everything up and created them again, only this time the correct direction.  :)

I loved using the Stampin' Blends to color in the flower and choosing this card as a Thank You card.  Really, this could be used for celebrating anything from a promotion to holding the door open for someone or starting the dishwasher without being asked.  I just chose to add the thanks to the inside of the card to show someone how much they are appreciated and that someone notices even small acts of kindness.  The Sale-a-bration items I chose to highlight on this card are the thinlits, the stamp set, and the card itself.  It is part of the Tutti Frutti Notecards set.

Did I throw away my original thinlits with the adhesive on the wrong side?  Of course not!!! You're talking about the girl who keeps leftover scraps of paper because you never know when a card will need that exact size and color.  This mistake was just an opportunity to be more creative.  Some of my best ideas come from trying to fix a mistake.  So, another celebration card was born.  This one to celebrate a birthday.  The thinlits were adhered to the back side of a vellum layer that was then attached to the card.  It just goes to show anything can be redeemed.

 Which card to you prefer?  The original thank you celebration or the bonus birthday card?
