Cardmaking Gone Wrong!!!

Here was the first sympathy card I made but had to switch gears when I saw how it turned out.  YUCK!!! 

What is wrong with this picture??? Well, for starters the flower is too big for the area I wanted to keep it in.  And the squares are also too big!  The squares might work if I were to find a smaller image but that is up in the air.  So needless to say I had to make another card because I just couldn't send this one out.  Would you send out a card like this??? I don't think so! 

I don't have much else to say about this card.  I think YUCK! describes it the best!!  But it does give me inspiration to make a better card!!!  I think this card will be an inspiration to everyone to make a better card!!! LOL

Be sure to stop back tomorrow. I have a fun little project for you to try!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,


  1. it's not as yuck as you think.

    Oh Wanda, I think you're being too hard on yourself. Before I read your post, I saw the card and thought "Oh I like that". So, either you ARE too hard on yourself or else I have bad taste ... which we all know is impossible ... Ha! Keep at it girlie ... I love your stuff. Jilly <><

    Wanda I think it is just great. The flower is the same size as all three blocks put together. I think it is a beautiful card. I would not change a thing

  4. I love this style of card and your creation in wonderful. I am with Jilly on this one;)

  5. I actually really like this card and I would send it.

  6. I loved it. I'd call it Cardmaking Gone Good!

  7. I, too, think you are being too hard on yourself. I saw this and thought WOW! I really like that. In fact, I was printing it off to go make one and thought maybe I should check your site and then I saw how down you were on it. Don't be. I love it and it gave me lots of inspiration on how to use some of my floral stamps.

    Wanda, honestly I wouldn't have even stopped to open and look at your card if I didn't think it was amazing. I love everything about it!
