New Year, new kit.....

Thought I'd done with cards for a while but no, first week of January is riddled with birthdays and 2 are special 21st ones.

In the 'sales' I succumbed to a Kanban kit I have had my eye on for a while. It is the Safari Boutique collection and based on animal prints with lots of gold foiling. I'm not usually a fan of all that foiling but on this kit it seems essential and just right for a fashion conscious 21 year old.

I love how this card turned out, but I have to 'fess up it wasn't all my own idea, I saw a presentation on C & C where they showed a similar sample - I loved the idea of making an acetate window to give the front of the card some dimension and it worked really well. It's hard to see in the photos (acetate is a devil to photograph anyway!!). I hope she likes it. Well onwards and upwards, trying to get ahead with my birthday cards so I can get on with something else - feeling the urge to get inky and messy....

The card is fabulous Cindy, she's sure to love it! I also have a lot of cards to make this month - not my favourite thing to do I must admit!
