Snow Globe Postcard Fail....

For one of the swaps I am in, I am supposed to make a Snow Globe postcard using this tutorial and send it to my partner. I made one yesterday and after much work is was a failure. I decided that I was going to wait for the weekend to try round two, but I REALLY wanted to try again NOW.

So after I cooked dinner today I put in the movie Remember Me (by the way if you have not seen that movie, you must. I will warn you though, it will have you in tears by the end) and got to work on my card.

It took me almost two hours to almost complete it. I know, I am slow. I really wanted it to be perfect. Well, it is not perfect and this is why, the stupid sides of the card wont seal!!! I do not know if it is the type of paper glue that I am using or the paper is playing games with me.

This is what it currently looks like:

I am leaving it under heavy books overnight. Maybe with some drying time and pressure the card will seal, but for now I am calling it FAILED. If by some miracle it seals I will finish it tomorrow and post the final product. If it does not, it is back to the drawing board.

Ciao!! xoxo

I am afraid to look at it. I will check on it tomorrow. Give it one more day. If it looks like crap tomorrow, I will start over again on Saturday.

what a really cute card! I'll have to check out that tutorial you liked to as well. I hope you get it to work right in the end. I know how frustrating it can be to work hard on something only to have it still not come out right.

haha - That is cute! Did you ever post the final product?
Mine would have been 3,000 times worse. I am working on my craftiness and failing miserably.

Can't wait to read more from your blog!
