Inspired by Mini Album !


Lately I have been pinning lot of mini album on my pin board, I just love the use of graphics, embossing, vellum, stitching and most the light organic water color look! So you get what’s the inspiration behind today’s card .Its a mini (3*4) gate fold card.


I went for cool color scheme, inspired by the beach/ocean (My interpretation of holidays, ideal summer vacation!)Distress Ink swooshing on bg  followed by light stamping. Stitched the vellum piece and decorated with embellishments.I found a perfect U pin in my stash , doesn't it look like a star fish ?


This is how I have tied the sentiments with birthday theme.A bit hurried attempt at writing the sentiment. 


Supplies used:
Stamps: Tim holtz cling stamp set, pixel set(Mudra),numbers rubber stamp
Inks: Versamark embossing ink, jet black archival Ink, Cracked pistachio & peacock feathers Distress Ink.

Linking it to:

  6. This is great! I love minis, too, but lately have become addicted to Planners and Traveler's Notebooks. I agree that these designs allow you to bring more organic elements into your design and you have done a great job of that here! Love your work!
