SPECIAL CARDS ARE ALWAYS THE BEST!

Hi all,

I hope you have all had a great weekend! It’s been lots of fun here in Kent with a special 70th Birthday celebration for one of my team members and of course a very special card was needed! 

I put this card together a few weeks ago and actually I am really pleased with it which makes a change for me. Usually I think “oh that’s not good enough” but not this time! I took a while to consider what I wanted to create and although I made it up as I went along it has come out just as I had hoped.  


As I wanted to create a very special card, I had browsed Pinterest for a different style of fold and I came across a design by my wonderful Upline, Michelle Last and a creation that she put together some time ago so thank you for the inspiration Michelle! (Click HERE to view the original fold design) 

My card here  measures 5.5” square and is made up of two pieces of card folded and attached to reveal a special fold inside! (Scroll down) 


I have used the new flower images from the new Tea Together Cling Mount Stamp Set which features in the Spring/Summer catalogue that is available until the end of May 2019.  

I have chosen to use Old Olive as the main colour along with Gold, Grey and Black which I think looks really elegant against the white background, along with a lot of techniques throughout the design.  


It’s always nice to add something a bit extra to cards and the writing page on this is one of my favourite parts. The flowers look really pretty in the grey and the font on the sentiment makes me wish I could change my handwriting!
