Happy birthday Son!

Today is my son Simon's birthday, so naturally I have made him a card.  
I know that fellas don't make a thing about birthday cards, 
but I do like to make their cards whenever I can.
Here's what I made for him.

view from above showing the double Z fold.

As you may have noticed I have become very fond of this double Z fold card,
introduced to made by the lovely Amanda at the Craft Spa
 - if you follow the link you will see loads of her fabulous creations there.

I have kept a very simple colour combo of Marina Mist and White for this card,
the Subtles DSP Stack and the Time of Years and Vertical Greetings stamp set.
I have used my Little Letters dies (retired) as they were just the right size for the job.

I am really pleased with this and will probably repeat this design again
(maybe for Barry's Birthday!)

  2. Hi Kate, this is gorgeous, I love the card design.
