Good News

Hi there!  Knocking around the ole studio today I put together a card to show using two of my favorite colors.  By the way, do you have any idea how hard it is to match red, ugh…thus my black embossed sentiment :-)  I’m working today with two new sets from Our Daily Bread Designs called Never Thirst and Brocade Borders.    The sentiment and frame panel is cut out close to the stamping around the curves and contours of the frame using one of the Brocade Border Die Cuts from Our Daily Bread Designs.

I used my Martha Stewart border punch to cut the flap on the front of the card.  I used an EK Success Punch down the left side of the card which made a great set up for the pearls.  Using two different round EK Success punches I cut the hole in the flap, threaded the ribbon through and tied a bow.

Card Recipe:
Stamps:  Our Daily Bread Designs – Never Thirst, Brocade Borders
Paper:  The Paper Studio, Bazzill
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
Accessories:  Our Daily Bread Designs Brocade Die Cut, Martha Stewart Border Punch, Pearls, May Arts Ribbon, EK Success Border Punch, EK Success 1-1/2" punch, EK Success 1-1/4" punch

Okay, back to working on my grumble, grumble, grumble misbehaving computer.  This too shall pass!!

See you soon!!

    Beautiful card. I love to wear red and black, too! Did you tuck the flap around the card or under it before everything was glued down? Your cards are so gorgeous!

  • emilySeptember 15, 2010 - 7:51 pm

    Gorgeous card! I never try to match colours! Doesn’t work. I use gold, silver, black or complementary colours or white on dark. It’s one less pain to deal with when creating! I love your design and all the pretty pearls. They are always so elegant!

    Oh how I know how hard it is to match reds. I did my nursery in my home for my twin granddaughters in red and black and discovered there are so many shades of red. Everytime I started a new project in there and tried to match the red, it was a struggle. I did it though. This card reminds me alot of the my crib bedding. I might just send you a picture.
