Make and Take

The main photo is the Make and Take I prepared for Joyce's Hostess Party recently - it's a quick and simple little card using rollers and punches on Bashful Blue cardstock. It requires a simple matt of Mellow Moss on Whisper White which has been rolled with the It's Beautiful roller to be found on p46 - this perfectly matches the A Beautiful Thing stamp set which was used recently to make Fleur's Hostess Party Make and Take in June - see photo below.

The corners of the two matting pieces where then clipped using the 1/2" Circle punch.
A piece of Bashful Blue taffeta ribbon was then secured across the Whisper White piece, this was then layered onto the Mellow Moss. A simple knot was then tied using a piece of Bashful Blue and Mellow Moss ribbon.

The flower was created using the 5-Petal punch, together with one of the blossoms from the Boho Blossoms punch and the 1/2" Circle punch, all layered together and secured in position.

The final touch would be an appropriate sentiment for the occasion - in this case, Kind Thanks from the Thank You Kindly set to be found on p60. By using the Stamp-a-ma-jig this could easily and accurately be placed wherever you thought looked the nicest - it is such a useful little gadget.

I'll photograph the card I demonstrated after the Make and Take and show you that tomorrow - it uses an unusual colour combination for me, namely, Elegant Eggplant, Almost Amethyst, Close to Cocoa and Very Vanilla with a touch of Certainly Celery grosgrain ribbon - do you see what I mean? - pop back tomorrow, if you have time, and have a look and see what you think to the colour combination.

  1. What a lovely card Bridgette. I love the two colours of ribbon and your flower. Can't wait to see the next colour combination.

Is there anyone out there? Your comments let me know that I am not alone in my 'happy space' - which is very reassuring. Thank you.
