Cards Inspiration with Martha!

Hello dear friends, Martha Lucia here to host the blog for you today.

I have a fun ruffle designed card that I created using our decorated papers. The best part of use these collections is that you can coordinate all the colors. You will always find a connector tone that makes your creation unique and special.


  • For today's card I used three different collections of papers and only one color of PowderPuff Chalk Ink.
  • These papers are Farmhouse 101, that is the embossed base.
    • Note how it works perfectly with this purpose, the details that I get with the embossing folder are totally crispy and the clear tones of the paper look really beautiful.
  • The second paper is Whistlin' Dixie 103. This design combines for one side, lines and arabesques in great form and different colors that made their design really attractive and for the other side, just and Moroccan style in two different greens, perfect to create the fun ruffle that I wanted for this design.
  • To made this ruffle you only need a piece of paper of 3"x7-1/2" and cut a diagonal line since 2-1/2 in horizontal line to 1-1/2" in vertical line.
    • Then made score lines in 2-1/2", 3-1/2", 5" and 6-1/8".
  • The third paper is Anchors Aweigh 107.
    • I used the dark side of this to create the banner on top for the decorated papers.


  • For a final touch I stamped a big flower from the Beautiful Bunch Stamp Set by Stampin Up over a piece of Whistlin' Dixie 107 paper using Barn Board.
  • I cut the flower with corresponding punch and pasted over the banner with a Dimensional/Double Sided Foam Tape.
  • I used Barn Board to stamp the sentiment directly over the card base.
