Plain Peace

Sometimes the most simplest of cards take an age to make! This one, which this week Charisma Cardz asks for:

No Backing Papers

Took me a while to think about and much shuffling of embellishments and embossing folders until I finally came up with this. The embellishment is actually a tree decoration from the sale at Sainsbury's in January (I've got another Peace and two Noel's left!) which has been glued to a vintage red pearlescent card which has been through my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder.

The burgundy ribbon is actually a much closer match in real life and I did a lot of faffing with the knot until it looked right. Not sure I'd actually be able to replicate it again, but it looks the part!

  • Card: From my stash
  • Embellishment: January Sale at Sainsbury's - Christmas tree decoration
  • Embossing: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder
  • Ribbon: 10p from Blackburn market
