Natural Birthday

This is card a made for my uncle who is an avid birdwatcher. I used whisper white card for the base and created a background using stamps from the autumn days and touch of nature stamp sets. Using a decoupage print from my stash I matted it onto ruby red, old olive, close to cocoa and so saffron card stock. Greeting was made using the vintage labels set and the scallop circle punch.

Thanks for looking

Vintage Pink Birthday

Hi just in case still reads this after me not posting for so long I apologise for the lack of posts. I was intending to be really organised and post regularly this year but as usual life seems to have gotten in the way as I have been pretty ill for most of this year so far. Any way enough excuses here is the first of a few posts I have scheduled over the next few weeks.

I made this card for my my almost sister in law Jenny who's birthday it was on monday. She is a big fan of pink so this card was done using Pretty In Pink, Whisper White and Chocolate Chip Card Stock. Main design uses the gorgeous Vintage Vogue stamp set available from the Mini Catalogue until September. Sentiments are taken from Sincere Salutations and Whimsical Words sets. Whimsical Words was one of the SAB sets from earlier this year.

You can't really see it that well in the photo but I used one of the stunning Shimmer Paints to stamp the background on the card base. Card was finished with Eyelet Border Punch, Corner Rounder and Gemstone Brads.
