Monday Class card 3 and 4

The weekend just flies by doesn't it....and then we are back to Monday morning, I hope the two cards I have for you today show you that minimal is ok, and your cards can look stylish with little product and effort!

Here is card 1.....

This card will be great to put by for the time when a masculine card is needed, and is very easy to create. The two stamp sets we used are Lovely as a Tree and Curly Cute which are in the main catalogue.

We have a very vanilla card base and we used More Mustard ink. First of all I made a template using the circles 2# die and the big shot. Next we placed the template on our card base and lightly daubered the inner circle. (this is called reverse masking) once this was done we stamped the tree image in the centre and added the happy birthday greeting at the bottom.

If you wanted a female version, you could follow the same technique and use flowers.

and card 2.....

Again we have a very vanilla base and we used crumb cake and soft suede ink.

We stamped the image Elizabeth straight onto the card base in crumb cake ink. This stamp is from our A la Carte' range and costs 8.95. We then stamped our greeting using one of the stamps you get in a set called It's your day which again is great value for money at £7.95 for 2 stamps. This was punched out using the oval punch and adhered using a dimensional to give some depth to the card.

Enjoy your day....and pop back soon
