Tall & skinny for Seize the Birthday

Hi there!

The optional twist this week at Seize the birthday, is to make a tall & skinny card.

For sure it's only an option, and you can join the fun with any newly created Birthday card!

My card is a little skinnier than normal, not so much taller though!







I use an cutting file from the silhouette on-line store (altered).

I added some shimmery textured paper and a few gems to jazz it up!

Sentiment stamp from Uniko studios.

Hope to see you in the STB gallery!

How was the holiday?

Good on ya for venturing into the 'tall & skinny' lane! I've tried this before and it just felt off! Your card is soooo cool though (love the paper) that I might just try to 'go there' again!

Erg mooie kaart! De Silhouette cadeautjes komen erg mooi uit! Mooi strak gesneden, dat is niet altijd zo.

We can always count on you to be creative, and you sure knocked it out of the park on this card, Hannelie! I love the black packages with the textured background and the gems are the perfect touch! Really awesome card!

Ek is deesdae nogal lief daarvoor om met tall en skinny kaartjies te werk - ek maak myne gewoonlik ook net smaller en bly by my standard hoogte. Ek is mal oor daai pienk papier en die swart lyk so treffend daarop!!! Hou van die bietjie bling wat jy opgesit het!!! Die bree swart rand maak die hele ontwerp regtig treffend!!!! Baie goed gedoen, vrou!!!!
