Frankly, I did NOT want to do this sketch. There are about 4 in a row that utterly do not inspire me. I keep plugging on, but ugh. So, I went into my room and stared at the laptop screen. Then I screamed. Then I threw myself on the bed and kicked and wailed. Then I woke up from the nightmare.
But the sketch still stared back at me–taunting me. I could hear it in that nasty schoolyard sing-song… “You’ve gottta maaakeee meeeee. You’ve gotta maaaake meee…”
So, I decided I wanted something to punch… to smash. Find a way to beat this card into submission. What better way than punches and embossing folders rolled through tight rollers. MMMWWWAAHAHAHAHA.
And here it is. I actually like the thing. I tried doing silver rings. They looked dumb.
Oh, and someone asked how I get my vellum through embossing folders without destroying it. I do it on the base rather than tab 1 or whatever the tab is on the big shot. On this one, I forgot to rotate to get it nicely on the other side, so one side is slightly underembossed but it still looks fine.
