Graphic 45 Time To Celebrate - Woman With Rose

I have a hard time coming up with what to title posts at times and "Woman With Rose" was the best I could come up with for this card.

Supplies Used:
Various Cardstock
Bazzill Swiss Dot Ribbon
1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon
Stampin Up Eyelet Border Punch - retired
Mounting Foam Squares
Thermoweb Super Tape Double Sided
Westcott Titanium Non Stick Scissors 

The reason the Westcott Titanium Non-Stick Scissors are mentioned is because I use them to cut my mounting foam and Super Double Sided tape and let me tell ya folks...they are a game changer!! Neither of those products will stick to these scissors and if you cut a lot of that stuff you know how often you have to clean your scissors because they get gummed up! They have the OKIE 5 STAR APPROVAL for sure!

As most of you know I am totally addicted to inking and I wasn't going to ink with these cards but what I found was the images that I fussy cut seemed to stand out a little better when I did ink the edges so inking I did! The lady was cut from one image and then layered on a different image because and I did that with quite a few of the cards. I started to pop dot the lady but didn't want too much bulk...the envelope issues I have ya know, but I think she looks fine just glued on top of the paper.

I liked how this one just simply says "Time To Celebrate" as it can be used for birthday, congratulations or any celebration type occasion. It's always nice to have some multi-purpose cards in the old card stash box.

I did pop dot the rose bud but the stem is glued down. As you can see I added some random Nuvo Crystal Drops here and there. It always amazes me how such little things can add so much more to a project. I am willing to admit at this point I am addicted to the Nuvo Crystal Drops and you will likely see them on every card from this collection. I might need to start buying them by the quart *okie wonders if such thing is even possible*.


  1. I love Graphics 45 papers, the images and especially the characters on them have a wonderful vintage feel. You done the papers proud with this gorgeous card.

  2. This card is so perfect for so many occasions! I wonder if glue dots could give a tiny bit of elevation, instead of foam. I need to play with Nuvo drops, you have totally convinced me. Amazing, breathtaking, and Graphic 45 should pay YOU for making amazing paper even nicer.

  3. Love the card. The lady is so elegant and displayed nicely on the card. I love G45 paper. It's a statement within itself. Good job. TFS
