August Double

There are 5 Thursdays in August and so, over at CAS Colours and Sketches we're doing 'the double' That means that we have a sketch and a colour challenge combined. Have a look

So, you must follow the sketch and use the three suggested colours (don't worry if you don't have the exact Stampin' Up colours) Here's my interpretation-

I die cut circles out of white cs, and embossed with my Mosaic folder. Then I cut slightly smaller circles out of the dark blue  and layered them together.  My final layer I stamped and heat embossed the pattern using Mosaic Madness and hghlighted the centres with a white gel pen.  Can't really see the large circle, I hear you say..


It's a fold out flap with the sentient stamped on the inside.  The bird is of course an old favourite - the two step bird punch, stamped from the same set as the sentiment - The Language of Friendship.
This is the last post from me for a couple of weeks, I am going to take a short break from designing at the beginning of September, but I do intend to comment, so I'm looking forward to seeing your 'double' cards.


  1. A fab card Louise, and I love your idea of the flap over the sentiment

    Bev :)

  2. The way you created the flap for the sentiment adds a fun touch to your card. I like how you've carried the mosaic theme throughout your card, too.

  3. A great card Louise - love the flap it's a lovely idea - Jacqueline x

  4. I love this clever sentiment flap idea Louise! Vicky x
