I can’t believe it is Friday already. Where did the week go. Mind you I am looking forward to the weekend. The weather has now picked up a little this week after Winter poked his head around the door last week, so I have planned a weekend in the garden. Anyone got anything nice planned for the weekend?
Today I wanted to share some quick and easy birthday cards I made. Saying that, a couple of them could be changed into Christmas cards.
The idea for these came from chatting with my friend Kylie a couple of weeks ago about how easy it was to grow bay trees. I love the standard ones that are cut into a ball shape. You know the ones that some people have either side of the front door.
The little urn and shrubs are attached using foam pads to raise them slightly.
I stamped my images onto White coated card stock using black archival ink, cut them out and colored them.
I stamped the flourish around the edge of the (cut to size) pretty papers using again using black archival ink.
I then just assembled the cards as seen.
Chocolate Baroque Stamps Used:
- The Urn – The Fabulous Flappers
- The Topiary Shrub – Is the top of a tree from Patchwork Landscape.
- The Floral Flourish around the edge – Fragrant Honeysuckle
- The Sentiment – Birthday Words.
- The red backing paper on the 3rd card – CB’s Stucco Background Damask Bright digital download.
That’s all from me today.
Thank you to everyone for leaving comments on my last post. It is always lovely to hear from.
Have a fantastic weekend
