City Crafter 278

Hello!
Time for a new challenge at City Crafter where Kirsty is hosting for us with a theme titled
Feeling Flat


He looks like I'm feeling right now having just prepared a project for my special needs group ... 60 notebooks to put together (3 each) plus a box to hold them in with all the embellishments phew!

On to the challenge ... Kirsty wants us to create a card that is flat and mail friendly
I made this for a friend who celebrated his birthday recently


This slotted into an envelope easily and only regular postage


After masking off, I stencilled right onto my card front with inks and added a little embossed stencilling too


Our Guest Designer this week is Buffy Burnside of Cherished Mementos - click on her name to go visit her blog

As always the team have more inspiration for you up on the City Crafter Blog 
I hope you can play along with us this week!

Have yourselves a beautiful day

Such a cute card. The colours and layout are gorgeous.The star stenciling just makes the card pop and a great addition to the card. Well done you on all that hard work for your special needs group.

Well, isn't this the cutest!! Great idea of the masking off..another thing I can try..you always inspire me!! Tell Ginger Cat that yes he is welcome anytime to sun in the garden, he has to share with the kitten though..poor little thing, she is about ready to be a housekitty, if I can keep the dog away from her, for some reason she is extremely jealous of her, maybe it's because she is so cute..lol...but I love my Nellie dog, too!! Animals, just like kids!!
