The challenge this week atTimeless Tuesday is to use two kinds of ribbon.  Well, that's an easy one - the hard part is choosing what ribbons to use!!  So I decided on a bit of drama for this one.  I took a piece of white cardstock, punched one end with an EK border punch, and embossed the rest with a Couture Creations EF.  Then, I wrapped red satin ribbon around it, then some black and white check ribbon, then some more red satin ribbon.  I layered the background onto black cardstock, then die cut some more black cardstock with a Spellbinders Scallop Circle die and added that.  Then, I stamped the large image from Flourishes Tulips for Friends set with Memento ink onto blending card, coloured it with copics, die cut it with a Spellbinders Standard Circle die, swiped the edge with red ink and added it with foam tape.  A little "happy birthday" tag and a check bow and it was finished.

Copic Colours used were: C1, C3, C5, C7, R22, R24, R27.

Thanks for coming to visit!


  1. Could you please let us know which EK Border Punch you used as well as the specific embossing folder? I'd LOVE to recreate this using all the resources you used. Also, which Copic colors you used, etc. Thanks much!

    1. Hello Jean - The EF is called Exotic and I think the EK punch is called Swirl (I wish punches were marked with their names!!!) They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so thank you that you like my creation so much that you wish to copy it. Have fun with the colouring (I did!)

  2. Oops ... I see you listed the Copics colors you used ... sorry but need the info on the other items you used. Love this card!

  3. Wowsers Helen! What a strikingly beautiful card. Lovin' the gingham over the solid red ribbon - love the contrast! Fabulous card creation. Thanks for joining us at Flourishes for our Timeless Tuesday Challenge this week!

  4. This is just beautiful, Helen! I love the black and white and pop of color!
