Today I’d like to share a card with you I saw the other day that stopped me in my tracks. This one here by the amazing Aimes (perhaps a nickname in the making!), who isn’t just a fabulous blogger but a really lovely person to boot. I love the depth of the colours in her card, the offset flag and the wonderful CAS style. Here it is in all it’s bright, graphic loveliness:
The Union Jack is everywhere in the UK at the moment. We already had the build up to the 2012 Olympics in London (my application for tickets is in) and then there’s a certain wedding going on today too! The flag isn’t being used just on some slightly twee royal wedding souvenirs and such but also in more cutting edge designs, for example, I saw it used as the lining to a trendy hoody the other day. Which is another reason why I loved Aimes card so much – right on trend. It is also why I thought my son would love a version of this card (minus the love birds!). Here’s a snippet of the card I made if only so you can understand the slight terror that is building up inside me – soon I will have a teenager in the house!!
If you haven’t already – pop on over to Aimes blog. It’s well worth a visit.
