International Blog Highlights

Monday 9 January 2023 United Kingdom

It's time for Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlights!

As usual, the theme is Thank You!

You can check out all of the thank you cards entered by papercrafters from all over the world by clicking on the banner above.

If you like my card, please vote for me - you can find more information on how to vote further down this page.

I've combined this with a challenge running in our facebook group for Michelle Last's team of Stampin' Up! demonstrators called the Pinkies! The challenge is Clean and SImple.

Whilst the gorgeous Fitting Florets DSP has just retired, I still wanted to share this simple card with you. I've used the coordinating Framed Florets stamp set for the sentiment, which I have heat embossed in black for a greater impact.

I've used my trusty Layering Circle dies for the main feature, cutting the scalloped circle from Basic Black card stock.

I fussy cut the flowers from the Fitting Florets DSP - the colours in this DSP are just gorgeous! 

It took a little while and required some patience but I think it was worth the effort,

If you do not have this DSP, a similar look can be achieved by using a floral stamp set, floral dies or floral patterned paper.


I dry embossed the Basic White cardstock base using the Painted Texture embossing folder and then to finish the card I added some Matte Black Dots.

Which one is your favourite - left or right?
