Hi everyone - I hope that you all enjoyed the Jems Blog Hop yesterday.
Weren't, there some fabulous projects on there, I really enjoyed hopping round
To see everyone's makes.
Yesterday was the birthday of Chris (my Sister-in-law, fellow crafter, close friend
and Stampin' Up down-line) and I wanted to make her something special to mark the occasion,
Here's what I came up with.
I used one of my favourite fold cards - inspired by the lovely Amanda from the Craft Spa
- I think she calls it a double Z fold.
I opted for my new favourite In Colour - Sweet Sugar Plum cardstock and ink,
added matching paper from the 2016 - 2017 In Colour DSP stack
and used the Swirly Scribbles thinlits die to cut the swirls.
I used the waste from the cardstock swirl to the DSP swirl and vice versa.
I think it looks quite effective - better than the white card showing through.
I used the computer to personalise the card strip, trying to match the colour.
Don't you just love that greeting - another of my new catalogue purchases -
the Vertical Greetings stamp set.

Above you can see the second panel, stamped with a topiary tree from
the Vertical Greetings stamp set

I am really pleased with this design, hope that Chris likes it too!!
