Papertrey Ink birthday card

Hello everyone and welcome to Lynda and Katina who are new followers this week. The weather in Manchester has been wet, windy and cold for ages and I've even resorted to putting the central heating on, which is a sad state of affairs for June! Oh well, when the good weather eventually comes, I'm sure we'll all appreciate it so much more.

The challenge over at Less is More this week is to make a CAS card that has some shine. I came up with this card using my new PTI Trendy Tree Tops stamps which are gorgeous.


I kept the card very simple with brown and aqua mist ink and some brown card to make a small mat. The ink looks almost black in this photo for some reason and the shine on the red heart doesn't show very well, but you can see it a little better in this one :-


I need to make a bunch of birthday cards and this was so easy to replicate. Do take a look at the LIM site to see all the great entries.

Thanks for looking

Hugs

  7. I love your group of three stylised trees Carol and the heart is beautifully placed. It always feels terrible to put the heating on in June doesn't it, but we probably won't need heating when there's a heat wave in November! Vicky x
