Mini Catalogue Blog Hop

Hi!

Welcome back to another blog hop.  Today's hop showcases some of the products you can find in the new Summer Mini Catalogue.  I have chosen some of the products in the Travel Suite range, which you can find on pages 16 and 17 on the Mini.  The blog before mine is the wonderful Nikki Sadler's.  Just keep hopping til you get back to where you started.

I have made two very similar cards that would be suitable for an older male's birthday.  This can be a tricky age group to make cards for!

 All that's really different is the placement of the DSP behind the main panel of the card.  Here's each card individually:


A closer look at the side.  I raised three sections of the cards on dimensionals: the first layer, the main panel and the plane image.


Finally, a look at the inside of the cards.  As the base card was Night of Navy card stock it was essential to add something to the middle so that the card could be written on.  I love the tone on tone Crumb Cake effect.


And that's all from me.  Now you're off to see what fabulous creations Amy Buchanan has come up with.  Happy Hopping!

Tina
