365 Cards Day 85 Super Sketchy Sunday & Stampin' Chic Colour challenege Blue & Brown
I don't often make cards oriented and folded in this way, but with the rounded corners on the base of the sketch at 365 , I thought I'd have a go.
I thought that I would make one of the shapes an aperture. The backing paper which is inside the card is from Clare Curd's Signature range. The colour choice of blue and brown is for Stampin Chic's challenge this week.
I had several goes at getting the aperture and the embossing sorted, but got there in the end.
This is a little different for me, however it's still in the unfussy vein, which is the style I prefer. I added a plain oval inside so that the sender had somewhere to write a message.
We had a lovely family barbecue get together yesterday. It was the first time that the three youngest members of the family had met. They got on remarkably well, with no squabbling over toys. Quelle relief!
My granddaughter Daisy is on the right. The two chaps are my two nieces' offspring.
Enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend.
