When I posted Mary's Occasions Mini Catalog Top 10 Favorites yesterday, I included the Framed Tulips Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  It's the cornerstone of today's card and especially elegant used with Whisper White card stock. 


  • Stampin up occasions mini catalog bitty buttons Love Impressions Rub-Ons are a busy stamper's best friend.  The balloon (how cute is that?) and sentiment are both rub-ons.  Cool bonus:  light or white sentiments really pop on darker cardstock (like the Basic Gray I used).
  • Clear Bitty Buttons rock and you can get yours FREE.  Click for details on the Filled with Love Bundle special offer.  A Basic Jewels Rhinestone adds the perfect hint of sparkle.
  • The Pretty in Pink 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon isn't going to slide.  Check out this video technique for No Slide Ribbon!

  1. Such a beautiful card, Mary!!! Love it, so crisp and clean. Hugs,

  2. Mary, you are SO creative. I can never think this far into the box or even a bag LOL. Great crisp clean lines and the white/red and gray are stunning.! I want to be “just like you” someday! TFS

  3. Congrats on being in the top six with Mojo Monday. Beautiful card!

  4. Such a sweet card! Love the balloon and the tulip embossing!

  5. Hi Norma: White can be tricky . . . it helps to have a darker background (crumb cake or sahara sand are good neutrals that help cut the glare) and I shoot the light behind the card vs. at it. Give this a try! Hugs and thank you for your sweet sentiments, Mary
