Card For Michelle

Hello all,
It's a bit nippy, isn't it?  We haven't had a lot of snow, though, fortunately.  
I've had a week off work and I've been packing, but also doing loads of french and getting some cards made.
In January the card swap group challenge was to use a definite shape on your card, like a square, rectangle, circle, etc.  As it turned out, the majority of people went for hexagons in one way or another and they were all fabulous.
This is the card I made for Michelle:

I've used Pool Party and Lucky Limeade, with some of the lovely Fresh Vintage paper. I can't believe I've still got some of that in my stash.
It's been absolute ages since I made one of these cards and it's silly really because they're very easy and fun to make.
The whole piece of Lucky Limeade cardstock measures 28cm x 11 cm.  I scored at 7cm from either end and folded it over.  I cut two pieces of matching dsp at 10.5cm x 6.5cm and stuck them to both flaps.  Then I cut my ovals from the Pool Party cardstock.  I ran the small plain oval through my Big Shot using the oval embossing folder.  Then I stamped my image from the Clearly For You stamp set onto white cardstock and punched it out, then stuck it in the oval space.  I glued the scalloped oval down on the left hand side and the small oval on the right hand side, so I could slot it into the big oval, and there you have it.  Actually very easy and the result is a lovely, unusual card.
I'll be back soon to show you how my Project Life album is shaping up so far this year.
Happy crafting
Jane xx

  1. My card is still taking pride of place on my mantelpiece. I love the Fresh Vintage paper so much, one of my favourites. Good luck with the move x x
