Good evening all, well the weather has certainly picked up here this last week – its been lovely!
Doesn’t it cheer you up, it’s been breezy too so I’ve got all my washing dry – I love pegging washing out, is that a bit sad!!
We were all set to take Jess to her work experience and she broke a tooth so we had 3 trips to the dentist in 3 days, they were very good and managed to get it fixed so she’s gone now until May when she goes back to college. I miss her but can’t believe that one little person can make so much mess, the house is certainly tidier and the heating bills lower when she’s not here!!
Time for a new Papertake Weekly Challenge and this week and the theme is;
One Paper Taker
All we want you to do this week is stick to just one patterned / design paper only
There’s a fab prize up for grabs for the lucky winner …and this week our lovely sponsors are Mary & Andrea at The Ribbon Girl
As always the design team have made some lovely cards to give you inspiration so make sure you check them out if you need a few ideas
This is a bit different for me, I always used to make this shaped card before I started on the square ones, it’s A5 folded lengthways
I chose my one and only patterned paper from the Lili of the Valley Candles And Cake pad. I love these papers, it’s a great selection of bright and cheerful colours which are perfect for kids cards, especially boys
I backed it with red card and then cut out the circle with a nestie. This was mounted onto the card base with foam tape, don’t forget to put a square of white behind the circle before you stick it (my card base is black)
I cut the black frame from a scalloped circle nestie and stuck this on next with normal flat tape
Hope you like it, I ended up making it about 3 times because I wanted a sentiment on but I just couldn’t get it to look right. I decided to leave it off as there are the words on the paper so I’d love to have your feedback
Have a lovely evening x
