A little Damask Card

Hi everyone! I hope you are all well:) x
Todays card that I would like to share is one that you may of seen on The Hobby House show.
Surprisingly it is a very small card for me....only measuring 5 1/4" x 4 1/4".

  • I Have used the Spellbinder Grand Labels Four die (the middle size), folded and scored it in half to create my main card. I used cream card.
  •  I have then taken some Hobby House patterned paper called Ornate Damask die cut it out with the next size down Labels Four and embossed it with the Spellbinder  m-embossing folder - Elegance. (I cut it in half).
  • Next I have inked over the embossed areas with Spun Sugar Distress Ink and adhered it to the centre of the card.
  • I have die cut the decorative circle die from the Heartfelt  Creations Raindrops on Roses collection in cream card and inked a little with Spun Sugar Distress Ink. I adhered this to the centre of the card.
  • I have added some roses, velvet ribbon and pearl embellishments from The Hobby House Pink Mint embellishment set.
  • The sentiment is one from my stash that I have inked and die cut out using the Spellbinder Labels  Four. Instead of adhering it flat to my card I have arched it a little and glued just at each end.
  • I have added a metal spacer and pearl brad from The Hobby House on the right hand corner of the sentiment.
  • To finish I have added a little Spun Sugar Distress Ink around the edges of the main card base and added some Stickle glitter -Diamond for a little added sparkle.
I really enjoyed making this very quick and tiny card:)
Take care x


  1. It might feel small, but its a really pretty card - nowadays the trend has been for bigger and bigger ones, but a smaller card has a lot going for it..

  2. Hi Nikki,
    Beautiful things come in small packages and your card today is sooooo beautiful! Plus it will be cheaper to post but the size does not take away the prettiness of it. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    Love Sheila xx

  3. H Nikki, I love your Card today it's just so pretty, I really love the Die a Cut from Heartfelt I'm lucky enough to have this set and it's beautiful, I think if your making a smaller Card it's great as long as the Embellishments etc are kept to the minimum and you've got it perfect!!!
    Take Care Love and Hugs from Sam x

  15. Hi Nikki
    What a lovely idea to create this card shape. I will definitely try this, as I have the feature die and can improvise on an unusual shape. Beautiful colours, too. Best wishes, Anne O
