I finally got back into my craft room after 3 days away for a work meeting and, boy, was I glad to be home! I had so much fun making my Pure Innocence Dig girl card that I decided to make a "real" one for comparison.
Things I learned from this experience: 1) in the digi world, I can make my scalloped oval frame any size I want- not so much with my Nestie dies 2) digital stitching is always straight and 3) I never run out of digi buttons in the shade I want!
I started this card with the same Riding Hood Red 5-3/4" square card base (are you as totally stoked as I am that RHR is coming back as a standard color?!!). I printed my own Brocade Blue paper from my digi stock (OK, so that means this card is technically a hybrid card...") and layered it with some Sweet Pea Chocolate Chip dotted paper over a Whisper White square. I punched a white strip and added some Kiwi satin ribbon I have been hoarding in the middle.
Since I ran out of "real" Kiwi buttons, I had to use Chocolate ones and had to modify my Riding Hood Red die cut background since the scalloped oval wasn't big enough IRL! I did color my image with real alcohol markers- I love the way her boots came out- I want a pair! The greeting was printed on the computer, punched with the Designer Label Punch and mounted with a Hodge Podge hardware piece.
Leave me a comment and vote for the version you like best- digi or real!
Have a great day~
