The Perils Of Stamping On A Slope.

I just had to giggle at my silly self when I finally had a good look at this card.  The hysterical thing is, I didn't realize that my card front was perched at a tilt until I went to upload the pictures of one of my latest creations just now.  Oopsy Doops!  What is even funnier is that I was really diggin' making this card too and maybe a little bit proud of it as well.  Oddly enough, it sold on the weekend during Saturday's local craft market and ended up going to a lady who beat out (almost literally) another gentleman who wanted to buy it for his dad.  I haven't ever seen two folks vying for my cards before (or anything of mine really) so that was not only kind of strange, but a little bit (clandestinely speaking) cool.  So you can imagine the mild coronary I had this morning, when I noticed the card front sloping to one side (not the paper so much, but the actual stamping has slid over) when perusing the photographs to upload. Eek! So, I thought I'd share a chuckle with you at yet another of my not so little crafting flubs that I can't even get rid of the evidence of because the card has driven out the lot!  Oh well.  Let's hope my cock-eyed stamped card is just viewed as yet another quirky creation by an off-kilter crafter.  That could work.

Jen, I honestly don't see the tilt. I have looked at it zoomed in and out and don't see it. You are too hard on your creations. I think you should be so proud of yourself that you have people fighting over your cards! This is a great masculine card. I love it.

I think it looks great and don't see anything wrong with it. We can definitely be our own worst critics sometimes.
