My oops! card

Well, this was supposed to be a monogrammed thank you card, but I didn't like the way the monogrammed letter looked, or the placement of it, but didn't want to waste the card.  So, I took my 1 1/4" Circle punch and punched out the letter leaving the opening. 

Now, what was I going to do with a card with a big circle cut out of the corner?  After looking at my wall of stamps I decided to turn this into a simple Thank You card.  Using the Framed Tulips embossing folder I made my border, stamped the Thank you in the upper left corner, and stamped the little flower through the hole in the card.  Now, my mistake looks like it was always supposed to be like this.  Like I always tell my workshop and class stampers, you can usually find a way to turn your oops card into a usable card.  Sometimes it is even better than what you had planned!

The following were used:
Cardstock:  Very Vanilla #101650
Ink:  Rich Razzleberry #115658
Stamp Sets:  Thank You Kindly #111700, Tiny Tags #118091 wood or #118592 clear
Accessories:  Big Shot #113439, Framed Tulips Embossing Folder #121809
Punch:  1 1/4" Circle #119861

A lovely result from an "oops" card. I think we've all those at one time or another. Great for thinking out of the box.
