August Card Class – Floral Phrases and Swirly Bird

By | August 25, 2016

Hi there

It’s not long till the Holiday Catalogue will be with us.  If you haven’t received a copy yet please let me know and I’ll send one out.

I was inspired by a card Tina Rappe shared on one of the groups I belong to that I had to have a go and recreate myself.  It looks like there is a scalloped mat around the image but it’s actually a ‘window’.  The hole is cut out of the card base and the card front allowing you to see the stamped image on the inside – how cool is that.  My card ladies enjoyed making this and they had two options of sentiments.

Floral Phrases - Wedding Wishes - Alexandra

The stamp set we used is Floral Phrases and comes as a bundle with the coordinating Detailed Floral Thinlits which we also used to create the intricate pattern on the left of the image.

Floral Phrases - Happy Birthday - Allison

This also works well for a birthday card – this one was for my sister-in-law who celebrated her birthday last week.

The second card we made was for Father’s Day which is only a couple of weeks away for those of us in the South Pacific.

Swirly Bird - Happy Fathers Day

I CASED this card from Sara Sayers – I love the bold colours of Real Red, Daffodil Delight and Dapper Denim.  This design could also be used for a birthday card.

Check back tomorrow for another version of the Swirly Bird card I made for a 10 year boy.
