My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

13 July 2010

In the Garden

My second post for today - this card I made a couple of weeks ago, but have not yet shown as it was a commission for a friend for their Dad's 70th birthday last week. I have to say I was very pleased with the outcome of this card and they were thrilled with it as the brief was very brief! LOL. Dad loved it too apparently.

This is the inside - I used one of my 8" x 8" gatefold cards which I love using for this type of work - there is just so much space!

I am going to enter this into the Papertake Weekly challenge with their theme of In The Garden.

For this card I used:-

  • Kanban Patchwork Pals Set
  • MME Asparagus Papers
  • PM Pearls
  • Anita's Number Peeloffs
  • Computer Generated Inner Greeting
  • Die Cut Greeting
  • DCWV Cardstock
