Quick Photo Card - Culzean Castle

Evening Everyone,

I hope this finds you well and enjoying the weekend. We're having an Indian Summer here, and lovely it is too ... long may it last :)

After a prolonged period of just not getting my crafting head on, I've suddenly realised that I have three birthdays coming up on the 16th ... yes, three all on the same day! So I've knuckled down and made a start with the cardmaking. First up is one for my lovely uncle Emrys, it's his 83rd birthday.
It couldn't have been simpler to make this card. I take a great many photos on our trips out, always with the intention of doing something with them that is, rather than leaving them tucked away on my PC. So, finally, I printed off this photo of Culzean Castle, it's one that I took last September so I thought it appropriate for this particular card. I've kept it very simple - maybe too simple - but hopefully uncle will like it. The photo is matted on to white, blue and black cardstock to frame it. A birthday greeting is stamped inside - forgot to take a photo of that.

Right, better get on with card #2.

Hope you have a super Sunday.

Happy Crafting

Hi Elizabeth,
what a fabulous card.
Love that picture of the castle.
Superb matting on this lovely creation.
I must admit there are some lovely
castles in Scotland.
I remember when we visited Dun Robin Castle, in Sutherland it was soooo! pretty and the views from the windows on super gardens.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
