I decided to grab those Expressions in Ink papers that I put aside after failing the sheet load of cards challenge last month and use a couple to make two cards for this months design team contribution.
I used Old Olive as the contrast colour for the mount on the square piece (one of which is a triangle as per the original design on sheetload of cards) and added the sentiment and the die cut from the same Old Olive cardstock. I did also add a panel of the pale Papaya shimmer vellum underneath so that gives it a fancy frame!
Both cards are very similar with the colours and the leaf die cuts but with different papers they look different enough for me to be happy (I never like making the same card more than once).
For the envelopes I used some leftover strips of the cardstock to add a little panel on each.
So off to see what other birthday creations the team have been making … and I encourage you to come and join in on the challenge.
