'Just Want To Say...'

It seems that I have more birthdays in April than I'd originally thought. I rarely send out cards from my stash, they're usually donated to be sold in aid of charity twice each year. I prefer to make cards for each person as the events arise. However, I've been caught on the hop this week, I needed 5 birthday cards and a bundle of thanks all to go out within the next few days. That stash of cards sure came in handy!

I made the base of this birthday card last year when I purchased the Botanical Prints Medley. Such a lovely suite of products. The patterned paper (DSP) is from the medley but the die cut sentiment on the front of the card is one of the current Floral Gallery dies. Inside I have used a retired Happy Birthday die.

The card appears to have a black sentiment in this photo, it is actually night of navy which looks so smart next to the bright yellow. The layered panels have been glued flat along one side and lifted on dimensionals on the opposite side to give a louvred efect.

I've also been making a batch of mini cards to send out with gifts to those who have ordered from me recently. Below are the first few completed. The stamp set - Forever Fern, appeared in our annual catalogue last summer but I've only just ordered and used it this month. 

How pretty these simple little cards look!

The colours are 3 of the new In Colours which are released for sale from 4th May. I used Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent which have both been stamped off first. The soft mauve/pink is Fresh Freesia. There are 2 further colours which I haven't used here - Polished Pink and Pale Papaya.

Evening Evergreen appears black in my photo but is, in fact, a lovely deep,deep green.

You can get these new products from 4th May and if you'd like to receive one of the latest catalogues, please do let me know!
