Happy birthday

Having not made a skinny card for ages, I now find that I have made two in practically as many days, but both have been in response to challenges.

Nature's bounty -  I'm referring to the wood, which is indeed a bounty of nature!

Watercooler Wednesday - All things masculine

I found a scrap of designer paper, (it was lucky as I don't use it much these days and have sent most to the charity shop) which toned with the chosen colours for the challenge and simply added a die cut sentiment. I don't remember the make of the alpha dies. I tried every colour for the word birthday and it took me ages to make a decision... in the end I stacked two of the colours I had cut out together.




  1. Wonderful the monotone effect! Also appreciated your comment about finding the right colors for sentiments/words...non card papers simply don't understand how long it can take to pick colors...sometimes I just walk away and revisit another day with fresh eyes! That said, your choices are spot on!

  2. Super card. Love the simplicity of the design. Thanks for playing along with The Male Room. X

  3. Wonderful masculine card! The strip of patterned paper and bold alpha dies really make this card stand out! Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  4. Wow! This is such a classy CAS design, Chrissie! I just love these neutral colors and the very crisp lay-out. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week.

  5. Gorgeous design, love the bold sentiment with different colour letters, looks awesome! Thank you so much for joining The Male Room's "Nature´s Bounty" challenge.


Thank you so much for popping by, I appreciate your comments!
