Celebrate !

Just a quick post from me today, I'm sharing a Clean and Simple (CAS) design on a card I made for a pal recently.  He no longer lives in the UK, so I didn't want to add many layers or embellishments so that it would be flat to go through the postal system - and be a little cheaper to post too being lighter !

I used a C6 basecard, a stamp from a set by Stampin'Up! - it was a freebie during their recent Sale-abrations promotion - and this old phonebox image is one of my favourite from the set.  I also love the Celebrate sentiment stamp.   This set of stamps is perfect for creating those often hard to make men's cards and I'm so glad I managed to get it whilst it was still available.
Firstly I stamped the phonebox image on to a scrap of white cardstock using SU! Cherry Cobbler ink, then dragged the inkpad around the edges of the stamped layer to give just a hint of a border before attaching to the base card.  Finally I stamped the sentiment using the CC ink.
Job Done and this card was despatched on it's journey to warm and sunny climes !
Thanks for popping by to check today's project, hope you like it.

What a great card. I love the image and the red telephone box is so immediately identifiable that I'm sure it will bring the memories flooding back for your pal Wynneth. Lx
