MHK Designs Challenge - Roses


     MHK Designs blog have moved their challenge date to the beginning of the month, so here is the project for January.
     I chose to make a CAS card using two of the gorgeous digi stamps from previous sets, the flower from Stencil In The Roses and the words from I've Been Framed.
     The flower image is increased in size to fit an A6 frame with a border, then I played around with my printing options to turn the image around.
     I wanted the image to come out upside down on the right of an A5 piece of card, so when it's folded in half the picture is on the front of the fold. I tried it out on a piece of copy paper first to check it was right. Then I put it back in the printer and added the words.
     Measuring an equal distance from the image to get the border right I scored the card down the middle. Once folded it needed a little trimming to tidy it up but that was it, a CAS A6 card, perfect for UK postage.
     The beauty of these images is they come already coloured, just right for a quick card or even a notelet set for a thank you gift, just change the wording or leave it off altogether.
     You have the chance to win a set of MHK Designs digi stamps just by playing along in the challenge and you don't have to use our stamps to join in, so please come and play along.
