It's all about the shape at AYLI!!

We are all about the shape at As You Like It today. An easy peasy theme so do join in and don't forget to give your reasons.

I chose 15cm x15cm. I love symmetry and balance on my cards and although I use my "frilly" die a fair bit I am never really 100% happy.



It's Declan's Birthday today and this is (obviously!!) for him. I have been itching to have a play with one of LOTV's printable sheets and as time was short this was the perfect opportunity. I was really pleased and teamed the image up with papers from a Joy Crafts pad. My new letter dies also got an airing...really pleased with them. He works incredibly long hours and I know he has arranged to have today off to spend with Mollie and Chelsea so I hope he will manage to "take the weight off" just like the little fella on his card.

Thank you for your visit today and if I haven't managed to visit you for a day or two I promise to rectify that very soon!!

Have a good one xx

What a cute card. I agree about the need for symmetry and no fussiness! I started doing nothing but square but I've ended up with the top fold A6 as standard!

What a fab guy card! Love the image which goes beautifully with the papers you've chosen to use. The son sentiment is a great font. The wrap around twine with the tag is a lovely finishing detail. I'm sure your son absolutely loved his card. Debra x

Always enjoy seeing these darling LOTV images, and this one is adorable, yet still perfect for a grownup son. I hope he has a wonderful birthday too. Love the gingham background combined with the neutral look of the script DP on the top. Sets off this relaxing guy just fine! TFS & have a great weekend.
