Ballerina Bliss

Hello Everyone!  Hopefully you all survived the first days of school.  My kids are all grown, but I remember the stress of trying to get everything done before the beginning of school.  Luckily, now I have time to do lots of crafting.  Today I wanted to show all of you a card that I made for my daughters birthday a couple of years ago.  I'm not sure of the manufacture of the paper with the ballerina design. It could possibly be by Melissa Frances.   I embossed the top of the cardstock with my Cuttlebug machine. I then took white chalk ink and rubbed it over the embossing.  It helps to pop out the design.  I applied lace to the edge of the cardstock.  Then I added some Recollections bling on top of the lace, and on the left side with some swirly bling.  The very last thing is to add the white ribbon.  I love this card.  It's so feminine.  I hope you all like it as well.

This card is an example of using the beautiful papers that already have designs on them.  It saves a lot of time and trouble of trying to match up the papers.  Give it a try, and let me know what you've come up with.  Happy crafting!!!!!!


  1. Kathy, this is just so beautiful! It does look like it could be Melissa Frances paper. So elegant :-)

  2. Thank you Donna! I think you might be right! It's one of my favorite cards.
