Saying 'Happy Birthday' with Flowers
These two cards make use of the 'Country Diary' stamps and papers that were included with a recent issue of Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine (April issue).
The large stamp is extremely useful as a background, made with the resist technique (results, left and next section below).
For the second birthday card, I simply used one of the papers and some stash items. Always good to find that perfect little addition for a card, isn't it?
Saying 'Get Well Soon' with Flowers
I stamped and embossed with the large 'Country Diary' stamp (see details above) and then wiped across the image with Tim Holtz Distress ink pads - Dried Marigold.
The sentiment stamp is from an Anna Griffin set.
The sentiment stamps in the 'Country Diary' set are Dearest Friend and With Love, which I found useful inside the cards.
I'll be back on screen soon with yet more makes for the Misses and Missus I know.
There's always a friend or family member with some kind of celebration or commiseration going on.
Any excuse ...
... to make a card!
