OK, so Darnell has challenged us to share our biggest card booboo on April Fool's Day.  Not our ugliest card, but one that slipped through Quality Control.  Got a photo of one of those?  Me too!


Doesn't look too bad so far, does it?  How about this view?


Somebody said it would be good to give to a left-handed person...

You've only got today to join in, so get your skates on and link up here.

  2. Oh boy! Yes, that it very bothersome, but you can rescue it! It's beautiful.

  3. LOL, yes, been there, done it, many many times! What I do to rescue, is cut the card front off and just layer it on to another card base . . . job done! TFS. Hazel xx

  6. I do understand as I have done this myself. I then cut off the panel and layer it onto another card base. It sure is a pretty design though.

  8. "Just trim it and stick it back on," is my motto. Soft and peaceful card though:)

  11. Your card reflects my shared boo-boo blunder to a *t*. Don't you love that moment when you realize what you've done..and don't know whether to cry or cuss (or both?). A little 'selective slicing', another card base, panel attached and...all will be *righted*! Better yet, give it to someone left-handed who will appreciate its uniqueness!

  13. Oh how many times I've done this! (you cut off the front, and stick on it again...which can make the card too heavy!) Love the design, and it's a very pretty card! Happy A/F Day and TFS

  14. What a pretty card, Shirley! And then, "Wha-?" It's the little boo boos that seem BIG when they happen to us! I like the suggestion to send it to a leftie! That would be a great save! Happy April Fool's Day and thank you so much for playing in my first BFCBB Hop!! Hugs, Darnell

  15. I suggest you give it to someone and then wait to see how long it takes for them to actually realise what the 'difference' is. Too pretty not to give away. Being left handed I would probably be quite grateful.

  16. Oh....groaning with you here because one of the prettiest cards I ever made was put together exactly like that!!! I only recently tore the "front" off to mount as a layer on a different card!!! TFS!

  18. Been there, done that. Last year, I posted a card with a panel that I mounted upside down. I used some post-it tape to keep my card closed and popped it against a mug to take my picture and posted it on my blog at http://marianne-cards-n-stuff.blogspot.gr/2015/09/another-nbus-card.html. Afterwards, I trimmed the front and mounted it onto a new card.

  19. Something we've all done, but not many are brave enough to share! I hope you've reused it as a card front, it's very beautiful

  20. Yes, rescued a few done that way myself. Definitely worth saving.

  21. OH MY GOODNESS! Your card just made me snort coffee through my nose! Yep - burst out laughing at the 'perzactly' same time as I scrolled down to your photo! So happy to know that I am not the only one to do these clever things!

    Great card front though! Sure hope you put it on another card base!

  22. Maybe we should start a new trend Shirley - how many of us have done this - could be cards for left handed people. Love your card too and have a great weekend

  23. This is such a gorgeous card, no one would mind that it opens the opposite way round, Shirley ... I do the same thing ... I've even written in one without realising it!! Hugs, Anita :)

  24. Pretty card! Yes, I have done the same thing, and Hubby told me (and the card recipient) that I should have left it that way!

  25. tee hee hee - been there done that!

  26. It's a jewish card - they read backwards! - I have done that...easy fix... cut it along the center and glue it on a folded piece of cardstock.
