The last two cards from Mrs B's collection

Happy Birthday Mrs B! Hope your parcel arrives today!

Here are the last two cards from Mrs B's collection. The one on the left (oops - I mean the bottom one!) is my favourite new design - you make it by cutting your A4 card in half along the length and folding it so that it opens at the side. 

The one on the right (which is actually the top one!) follows my new trend for 12cm square cards (which only started because I found a stash of square envelopes!). The strip across the middle is cut from one of the sheets of Cutie Pie paper which has lots of different widths of different patterns, for even more versatility.

I coloured the images using blender pens and ink pads.

Stamps: Cheers to You (p35).
Cardstock: Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Rose Red, So Saffron.
Paper: Cutie Pie (p73).
Ink: Basic Black, Rose Red, Certainly Celery, So Saffron.
Accessories: 5/8" Grosgrain ribbon - Certainly Celery (p86).

Edited to correct left/right/top/bottom problems!
