Good morning blog friends....

Today's card is a 6" square, well  we all know that the size is actually pertaining to the envelope and not the card which is always smaller

I used one of the gorgeous papers from the Rose Garden 6"x6" Paper Pad and reduced the size to 5.5" square

I distressed the edges using 'black soot' distress ink as opposed to adding a black panel, this also makes a less bulky card

This was then adhered to the base card
I used a die to cut and emboss the white card and stamped the sentiment using an Adirondack ink pad in 'raisin', it really blends with the paper 

The flower is from a set I bought when in Crafter's Companion's Aycliffe store, I went in for pale pink card but a few extra goodies also went into my basket!

I used the raisin ink pad and a blending tool to add colour to the petal edges.  To complete the card front I added 3 tiny black gems

  1. What a lovely card! Such a simple card - no clever techniques, no matting, just a piece of paper, some stamping and a flower - Amazing!!! Perhaps we overthink some of our ideas - I certainly do!! This card is so pretty - must go and hunt through my 6X6 pads and see what I can create!! Although not yet - got an MDF & a Birthday card on my desk to finish! Hope you are on the mend!

  2. I really like this card, so very nice with very little effort

  3. Hi June this is a stunning card I love it. That paper is gorgeous. Have a good weekend. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  4. This is a gorgeous card. Love the paper. Must look through my 6x6 pads. Take care and have a good weekend.

  5. Thanks June - this is a pad I have and love so must make this style of card. I think I will make flatter flowers as I want to send it to a friend through the international post !!
    Hope your weekend is better healthwise.

  6. Hi June,
    what a very wonderful card and such a beautiful design too.
    Love that flower and tha paper they look perfect together.
    Yes you are right we do say 6"x6" but as you say it is the envelope size not the card.
    The only exception I have found is Dovecraft Card blanks.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  7. This is such a pretty card and I love the stitched flag with the sentiment. The papers are so pretty, as are the lovely flowers!

  8. What a beautiful little card, so sweet xxx
