Flowers and Ribbon and Brads... Oh, My!

Tuesday, February 03, 2015


On occasion, I'm pressed for time and won't be able to make a card using my Cricut. Luckily, I have a stash of floral embellishments and designer paper which are perfect for creating simple handmade greeting cards. For this birthday card, I recycled some ribbon and used some of my favourite brads to attach the flowers to designer paper, which I matted onto white card stock. The sentiment is a stamp I found at Michaels and adhered using a strip of adhesive foam. Et, voilà!


Here is this week's Wordless Wednesday linky:
