Apologies to those who follow my blog, despite saying I would try and update the Palace noticeboard a bit more regularly, I haven't been able to do so. At least last weekend I managed to get some cards done for upcoming birthdays. Two for male friends based in Saudi whose birthdays are in the second week of March. Got them posted on Sunday, and have my fingers crossed that the cards arrive on time. The post to Saudi is a bit slow just now, something that isn't unusual.
Used the same tie template, from Papercraft Essentials Issue 37, for both cards just used different colours, which give each card a totally different look. For Bill's card used stripes of backing paper from Printable Heaven's Dots, Spots and Polka Dots selection. Again went to Printable Heaven for Mike's card and their Stripes selection.
Got a bit confused when my friend, Annie's birthday is, and got her card done. At least I am ahead there. Confusion arose as Annie's birthday is a couple of days after her and Mike's anniversary, but for some reason I had got it into my head that it was just after Mike's birthday. For Annie's card I used an iris folding template from Cardmaking & Papercraft Issue 61 and followed the instructions for the card and used papers from K & Company's Brenda Walton's 6x6 Scrapbook Designer Papers.
