Sophie's Card - Take #1 No Spoolin'

Remember a little while back I mentioned I made a really cool (I think) card for the first birthday of the divine Miss S? Do you remember that I realised after I made it that it is inappropriate for a 1 year old - bits that can be pulled off and other bits that are pointy (ouch!). Can you tell I don't have children?  But it was so cute (I may have said that already).

I am entering this card in the current challenge at the Southern Girls' Challenge blog : No Spoolin'.  No using anything that comes on a spool - twine, ribbon, cotton. Washi is ok but I didn't use any here. The link for the challenge is here

Without further ado here is my card:

The button was in a stashie I won as a letter to the editor in Scrapbooking Memories.  When I fist saw it I thought: when would I use that? I think it works perfectly with the honey comb embossing.  This was one of the cards I made with the Sizzix diffusers but I ended up covering the diffused centre circle as I didn't know what to do with it.

For once there is no stamping on my card - shock horror! (I couldn't find a small Best Wishes stamp in my stash)

Materials: Cardstock (Stampin' Up!), Flag and Button (Two Sisters), Embossing Folder (Sizzix), Flowers.


  1. That embossing looks awesome ... you've rocked this card ...

    1. Thanks Mrs Frizz. I do like that embossing folder and it goes perfectly with the cute bee button.
