International Blog Highlights Winners Hop

Hi Everyone,

Today I am excited to be taking part in Kylie Bertucci's International Highlights Winners Blog Hop.  All of the contributors to this hop were voted for by followers and fellow Demonstrators and I was lucky enough to be among the top ten for January 2021. The theme is 'Thank You' and I am showcasing some of the fabulous free designer series paper available during Sale-a-bration and some products from the Annual Catalogue.  Let me show you how I made my card.


1 piece of basic black card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4"
1 piece of basic white (replacing whisper white) 3 7/8" x 5 5/8" and 1 piece 1" x 4 1/8"
1 piece of Fields and Flowers dsp 4" x 5 3/4" and 1 piece 1 1/2" x 5 1/2"
1 piece of contrasting dsp 3 7/8" x 5 1/2"
Ornate Thanks stamp set
Confetti Flowers Border punch
Basic rhinestones
6 1/2" of daffodil delight ribbon
Scrap of cherry cobbler card stock for the flowers
Cherry Cobbler ink
Simply scored
Bone folder
Multipurpose adhesive


Score the basic black card stock on the long side at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make a landscape tent fold card.

Adhere the largest piece of dsp to the card front leaving a small border, then add the piece of contrasting dsp, again leaving a small border.

Stamp the sentiment on the basic white piece using cherry cobbler ink and add dimensionals to the back.

Wrap the ribbon around the small strip of dsp (mine matches the base layer on the card) and secure on the back with some sticky tape.  Now add this piece to the card front about 1/4" up from the bottom so that you can see a little bit of the contrasting dsp below it.

Add the sentiment mat in the centre of this strip.

Punch out some flowers with the confetti punch and arrange them on and around the sentiment layer and add some rhinestones for the flower centres.

Add the remaining basic white card to the inside to write your message. I had a strip of dsp left over which was 1/2" wide so I have added that for some interest.

I hope that you like my card, now please hop over to see what the other Winners have made.
