... Good morning! I'm here with my weekly Seven Hills Craft blog post. For a change I've only got one card to share with you today. It's a one layer, clean and simple card.
Stamps: Concord & 9th - Painted Shapes; Altenew - Friends Forever
Inks: Gina K - Powder Blue, Blue Raspberry, Blue Denim; Versafine Clair - Nocturne
Accessories: White Card; Black Marker Pen
I was inspired to make this card by a couple of challenges - Less is More - LIM#449 where they want us to use Shades of Blue, and AAA Cards - AAA#196 where they want us to decorate two quarters with the option of our favourite colour.
This card is really easy to make. I worked out the centre of side and used them to mask off the card. I stamped the chevron stamp in three shades of blue ink in the top left-hand corner. I removed the masking tape, repositioned it and then stamped the same image in the bottom right-hand corner. I used a black marker pen and ruler to draw the lines to mark off the quarters. I finished the front by adding a simple greeting in black ink. Inside the card, I simply stamped a line of dots at the top of the card (I slipped a bit), and some more chevrons at the bottom. There's lots of space for my message.
I'm very pleased how this card turned out. It's so easy to make that I might make a set and send them to Ben, along with some greetings that he can add as he wants.
After a rather wet and cool weekend, we've had some lovely sunny days here. Looks like summer might stick around for a while longer. Mum has been busy in her garden - it looks fab. Kat has been packing her bags as she's going back to Nottingham soon for her second year at university. That's all from me today. See you again soon.
