Something Simple...

Happy Tuesday!

Today's card is a simple white and burgundy and is deceptively simple looking.

This card started as a waste piece, I needed a circle and decided to cut it form the centre of a piece of card in case I wanted to use the piece as a mat.  I noticed there was enough to make a folded card.  Next I added the stamped die cut that did not work in another project on top of a piece of burgundy that happened to fit exactly on the inside rear of the card.

The flowers were a happy accident as I cut an old Sizzix die I'd bought on eBay which produced the most delicate small flowers and foliage.  I shaped these and simply started layering these as a spray on the front.  The centers of the flowers have no centers so a few pearls filled these gaps but also looked nice peeking over the aperture.

A delicate card but I hope you will agree effective.



  1. Great card John, love that wonderful flower arrangement

  5. Good morning John, to produce such a very pretty card from bits and pieces you had previously put to one side is wonderful. Love the flower spray and the sentiment you have chosen, best wishes Jackie D

  6. Love the card John, particularly the spray of flowers. They remind me of those which come with a branch in Spellbinders (cherry blossom?)

  7. Hi John. Gorgeous card, would make a stunning wedding card. The tiny flowers are beautiful, are they even smaller than Spellbinders cherry blossom? Take care.
