Things don’t always go right in card making. But I think we found a way to turn what we thought was a failure into something fantastic.

I’m not sure if fantastic is the right word for this card. But it sure is the opposite of failure which is what Ann was feeling during the process of making this card.

You’ll have to take a closer look at the card, but I’ll do my best to explain it. You see, there’s a vellum layer on this card that we laid over the stamped layer and we don’t like showing our adhesive.

Once we had stamped the Basic White layer, we attached a sheet of vellum that was cut to the same size on top. Then we attached both to a Basic Black border layer.

Then we ran both sheets through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. NOTE: This must have 3D Embossing Folder is retiring Monday. (Get your list of retiring stamps and accessories here.)

But when we did, the layers separated a bit. And that’s where the Black Glittered Ribbon came to the rescue to help bind the layers together.

The greeting help hide some extra adhesive.

I told Ann to put less ribbon on there, but she said she needed it so that everything was secure.

I’ve had a couple big naps since I told Ann to make this card. Here’s what I remember:
