International Blog Highlights Winners Hop - March 2021


I’m so excited to be featured in the the International Highlights Top Ten Winners Blog Hop hosted by Kylie Bertucci. I was selected to participate in this hop by finishing in the top ten of the March 2021 International Highlights. Thank you to everyone who voted for my card! The theme for the International Blog Highlights is "Thank You"! 

Here's my Forever Blossoms Fancy Fold Card that I shared in the International Highlights Blog Hop.  

Today's card features the Wrapped Bouquet Bundle.  When I saw this bundle in the January to June Mini Catalogue, I knew I had to have it.  I love the newsprint wrapping!

I used Smoky Slate, Basic Gray and Rich Razzleberry as the colour combination.  What do yu think?


  1. Cut Thick Basic White cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and fold in half to form card base.
  2. Emboss the front using the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.
  3. Cut Basic Gray cardstock 2 3/4" x 4"
  4. Adhere to card base at an angle using Stampin' Seal
  5. Cut Basic White cardstock 2 3/4" x 4"
  6. Stamp flower bundle using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
  7. Colour flowers using Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blends
  8. Stamp news print using Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends
  9. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals.
  10. Stamp sentiment on a scrap of Basic Gray cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
  11. Cut out using Paper Snips
