A Card With A High Intersection Score


When I was in high school, some outside group came in and gave us a reading test. It measured speed and comprehension.  If someone didn't do well, their parents were encouraged to sign them up for some type of extra help from the outside group.  I think it might have been a scam.  In any event, I did fine, thank you very much.  In fact, I had the highest intersection score, meaning my combination of speed and comprehension was the best.  Others were faster, and others had higher comprehension scores, but apparently I could skim and understand enough to get by.  This talent has proved to be no talent at all, as skimming is dangerous when you are practicing law.

In any event, this card has a high intersection score.  Although there are cards that are faster to make and are prettier, this one was quick to make and is pretty.

Gold embossed the bouquet from Altenew's Celebration set and a sentiment from Tiny Sentiments by Right at Home.  A quick watercolor wash, some gold ribbon, and the card was done.  To make sure it was good and flat, I ran it through my Big Shot before I put on the ribbon.

MOOD WHEN DONE = Happy!  Hope you are too.

  6. Ha! I'll keep that "high intersection score" in mind when I make a simple card. It sounds impressive! Mine don't always come out this pretty, though. It looks great embossed in gold on the soft watercolor wash. Your colored envelopes are always such a nice touch, too. Next time I'm getting colored!
