Good morning bloggers and crafty friends....

Did you wake to snow on Saturday?  We did but it was gone, thankfully, within a few hours and that will do me until this time next year!

I've named today's card as 'Man Monday' but it would also be suitable for a female, and aren't I a glutton for punishment with mirri card?!

Using black card I made a 5" x 7" base and added a smaller panel of gold mirri.  To that I cut black card, a tad smaller again, for the top panel

I used one of the striplet dies (Creative Expressions) without using the outer cutting die, to cut and emboss the black card

The top panel was then adhered to the card and I stamped and embossed  
 a sentiment (Pearl Gold Embossing Powder by WOW)

I used a small ribbon die to die cut and emboss the two tags, in black and gold  

We are changing internet suppliers tomorrow so my blog post may not be shown until later or much later in the day

Until then....



  1. Black and Gold - very elegant!! More mirri - think I am really going to have to go into the box - for some reason Mirri does not sit in my comfort zone! However - using it like this could!! Lovely card June!

  2. Hi June this is a stunning card I love the combination of black and gold together. No snow for us down here in Southampton. Though it is much colder. Have a great week. Take care. Hugs Jackie
