A card I made recently.....

I made this card recently for a very 'young' and trendy 70 year instructions were to make it clean and simple...the word used was minimilistic..with bright colours, even weird combinations of's my take on that:- I started off with 2 sheets of A3 black card as large cards need to be extra stable - so this gave me an A4 size card....I have boxes to fit this size as well as 6 x 8". Then a layer of orange (brand unknown) - a layer of Certainly Celery - and a layer of cerise (unknown brand). then I popped a rectangle of Grafic 45 Birdsong 'umbrellas' over a little larger rectangle of black again. I then adhered more of the umbrella card unto thicker card and cut out the umbrellas to give me enough to put a little spread of them in the bottom right hand corner to balance the tag....the tag is from Waltzingmouse and it is to be found here - I put the recipient's name on the front of it and a little message the way it folds up to hide the message. Inside was a very simple wording as 10 people were going to sign and leave their personal greetings. I decorated the box as well and popped it all into a gift bag which I had used my leftover strips of paper on with some black curling ribbon. Hope you like it!


  1. Lots of effort to create this very special card. You certainly fulfilled your mission.

  2. well done, Joyce - less is more as you get older it seems love the bright umbrella paper.
    Good to see you posting again. you need to add a "follow by email" gadget (do it on gadgets on layout page) to your sidebar so we can know when you have Shaz in Oz.x
