Papertrey Ink birthday card

Hi again,

Two posts in one day???? It's because I loved the PTI inspiration photo so much, I was inspired to try another card using those colours.

For this one I used Botanical Silhouettes and the Half and Half die and sentiments. I wanted to mat the half and half die shape so I cut the mat in half and stuck it behind the focal panel. This left a gap at the bottom which I covered with that gorgeous button.


I cannot remember using berry sorbet before but I've discovered I love it and it will certainly be using it again. Now I'm off to start hopping myself.

Hugs

  5. Both cards are wonderful, but I prefer the softness of this card just a teensy bit better. Clever use of the die for matting.
