It all started with a challenge!

It was my turn to design a Make and Take for our monthly meeting and Keryn challenged me to do it using some cork and card flower we had cut with the Blossom Party Originals Die and the Big Shot.

We looked through the Color Coach to see what colours would work nicely with it and we came up with a combination of Cajun Craze, Night of Navy and Old Olive.  

The first photo shows what I arrived home with.....  as I don't to waste anything I ended up making 5 cards!  

The card you see today is the first one I made and the one we made last night during our meeting.  I used the inlaid embossing technique and really like how it turned out!

Over the next few days I'll reveal the other cards, I tried to make them in different styles so show the versatility of the materials.

What I used:

Card:  Very Vanilla, Night of Navy, Old Olive, Cajun Craze.

Ink: Nil

Stamp set:  Nil

Tools and other fun stuff:  Big Shot, Blossom Party Originals Die, Glue stick, Square Lattice embossing folder, sheet of cork.


  1. Fabulous make and take last night Frances and good night enjoyed by all I thought.

    You're a machine if you've already made another three cards since you left here last night.

  2. It was a great card to make - loved the colours. Very pleased with my version. Thanks Francis!
