Good Monday Morning Ladies,
This weeks Challenge is to make an 'Aperture' card, it can be any size, any style, even a 'faux aperture' if you like (see below)....
Which is easily achieved by inking through a die cut circle or template in coloured ink and then stamping over the circle (or any shape you choose).
Today's sample cards: First one made using Powder Pink card and ink and Rose Garden Thinlits. I used the smaller Rose die to cut the aperture through my card, then placed it on the inside with an extra layer of Powder Pink card for colour.
I matched this with the matting and layering and the ribbon. I used the frame stamp and matching die to add my sentiment to the card.
The second card today and total showstopper has been made by Michele, the Strawberry Corner die was free on a magazine along with the stamp. Michele this is one of your nicest cards. I absolutely love it, it's so pretty, you have coloured the stamp beautifully. Thank you so much for allowing me to share your card as a inspiration for this weeks Challenge.
I did do a quick tutorial about aperture cards just incase anyone new looking in wasn't sure how you made one, I can add it if anyone is interested.
I can't wait to see what you come up with, as always there is plenty of inspiration in Pinterest if you need it.
Now, I have a very special birthday to share with all of you.......
Harry is 3 Today
xx Happy Birthday Harry xx
Can you believe that Lynda's Grandson Harry is 3 already?! Where have those 3 years gone? Lynda he looks so grown up in that photo, oh my goodness I love his hair, where does he get his curls from?
Your card that you made for Harry is so cute, it looks like a Woodware stamp, but I maybe wrong. Beautifully coloured and personalised.
Thank you so much for allowing us to share his special day xxx
