Number one dad…

When my mum was alive, she often made rosettes for my dad’s friends to wear to the football match, especially if Liverpool were playing a big game.  She would hand-stitch satin ribbon to circles of cardboard and add ribbon tails. 

Her rosettes were absolutely brilliant, everybody wanted one, and she must’ve made hundreds over the years! 

I took inspiration from my mum’s rosettes for the centre piece of this Father’s Day card ……

I used sticky strip to attach the ribbon instead of stitching, but I think the effect was very similar.  

I mounted the rosette onto a “shield” made from the top note die that had been embossed with the square lattice folder. 

I just  love this effect!

Happy 60th….



I know it’s not the usual type of 60th birthday card but I thought it would be fun for my brother-in-law as he is still young at heart … and I know his grandchildren will love it!  I guess it will be the only card he receives likes this anyhow!  🙂


These fun lolly-ice, or popsicle, cards have been round for a while and there are lots of examples on the web. 

I followed the tutorial on Angie’s blog  to make one as a topper for my card, attaching it with stampin dimensionals. 

The lolly also opened to reveal a birthday message…  

I did some stamping on the inside too… 


Stampin Up supplies used:

Cardstock: crumb cake, whisper white, real red; Inks: real red, crumb cake; Stamp sets: tart & tangy, party this way, schoolbook serif numbers, afterthoughts (hostess level 1 set), heard from the heart; Punches: scallop edge, scallop circle, 1 3/8” circle, 1¼” circle, corner rounder; Accessories: stampin dimensionals, stampin write markers in real red and certainly celery, real red striped grosgrain ribbon (retired), lolly-ice stick from my kitchen.
