Morning - Sunday and time for a lie-in?

Morning all,

Hope you  managed to catch a lie-in this morning .. I certainly intended to but - you know how things are!

On a crafting note .... I seem to be stuck in a bit of a circles rut lately with my journalling and also my last couple of cards! Oh well, they are versatile and totally fab! Yesterday I made a One Layer Card using the same images as today's card but thought ... "wonder how differently I could make this combo look ....?" - check it out .. add layers and change ink colours and .. VOILA!

My card
The front and back of the envelope and the front/back and inside of my card

Materials used:
  • White C6/A2, 250gsm, card blank and matching sized envelope
  • White, tan and rust card panels
  • Stampers Anonymous large circles and Crafters Companion small circles stamped using Ranger Archival sepia ink
  • Stampers Anonymous sentiment stamped using Ranger Archival jet black ink

A simple card but one which I really rather like, hope you do too. I'll be entering the above make for the following challenges:-
  1. Pixie's Crafty Workshop - challenge No. 224 - SNIPPETS CHALLENGE
  2. Morgans ArtWorld - challenge No. 7 - FOR THE MEN
  3. Suzi Bees - challenge No. 125 - CLEAN AND SIMPLE

Definitely time for a lie in! I'm still in bed but looking at your blog on my phone. Lovely looking card - I think I like it even more than yesterday's One due to the colour combination x x x

Jane Willis said...

I - the colour combination is perfect for the stamp, it makes for a very clean, masculine card. Thanks for sharing at Twofers

Love this card Kathy - for me, the border is a nice finishing touch. But then I'm very much a borders gal anyhow! I need to follow your example and be braver :)

Lovely to see you in the Playground!

Darnell J Knauss said...

I love both of your circle designs, Kathy! They are versatile and I thank you for the reminder! I think I need to go through my collection of circles and weed them out. It's almost like I have TOO many, such that I don't know where to start! Enjoy your day! Hugs, Darnell
