Morning blog friends....

For today's card I started with a 7" square, ivory coloured card stock then added a smaller panel of black card followed by a smaller panel of designer paper by  First Edition Paper called Mulberry Kisses.  This is an 8"x8" paper pad, bought sometime ago at The Range

I then die cut and embossed the centre design by Spellbinders, called A2 Swirl Background/S5-366,  in black card and ivory card, these two pieces were then adhered together but with a slight overlap to give the shadow effect

I glued a length of ivory ribbon to the back of the black card then adhered it the base card, with the designer paper attached

The die cut pieces were attached at a 'jaunty' angle and the ribbon was tied into a small bow

I added an enamel rose/Creative Expressions, to the centre of the bow and attached two stick pins, that I made, securing them into the knot of the ribbon

The pre-cut sentiment was adhered to the bottom of the card

For the inside of the card I added the designer paper onto black card, the paper is the reverse side of the leaf one, and die cut the centre piece by Vicky Welsby for Pretty Quick also in black card

If you would like to win this card please leave a comment on today's post

Your have until 6pm Friday to do so when the winner will be drawn and announced on Saturday's blog post

Until tomorrow....



  1. Like this idea June - taking the designer paper from the outside through to the inside seems to 'tie it all together'. The cream and black work so well together!It's ages since I have added 'stick pins', prhaps that's something else i need to do again soon!

  2. Lovely card, the colours work so well together and the stick pin is just right to finish it off

  3. Lovely card and colours are great. Did you happen to have stick pins that colour, buy them for this project or, as you are so versatile, colour them yourself? xxx

    1. Thank you Pam. I made the stick pins. I have a variety of colours


  4. Another great card you are offering us. Love the colours and layout. Thank you June.
