Sweet Madeline by Prima

I love using designer paper.  I often allow it to be the focal point of my project, and today’s birthday card is no exception.  The patterns and colors of Prima’s Madeline swept my heart away and I didn’t want to cover any of it up. Paired with a variety of May Arts ribbon, Prima flowers and a tiny JustRite tag gave me just the vintage look I was after.


Paper:  Madeline 6×6 by Prima

Flowers:  Whisper Collection (Madeline) by Prima

Ribbon by May Arts:  1.5″ and 5/8″ Pleated Satin (Ivory), 1/8″ Velvet (Pink, Ivory)

Adhesive to adhere ribbon:  Scor-Tape

Tag:  Stamps, Dies and Stamper Included in JustRite’s Happy Everything Tag Making Kit

Inside Sentiment:  JustRite’s Wedding Nested Sentiments, requiring a Clear Horizontal Stamper

Ink:  VersaFine Onyx Black

My card is a bit a larger at 6.5″ x 4.75″.  I like this size as it gives me a bit more room.  It is sized to fit perfectly inside an A6 sized Clear Box.  I LOVE my clear boxes.  I use them to store my cards for protection, to give them when hand delivering (a great presentation always evoking a huge WOW!), and they can be mailed as well.  I have them available in our standard US A2 size as well as A6.


All items used on this project and linked above are from the new online

Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.


I have a busy day ahead, so that’ll be it for today!

As always, I thank you so much for stopping in!  I wish you a wonderful day!!!
