Julie: Roses [and tickets] are red

Hi there.

Today's project makes the most of the warm colours and vintage charm of some of the embellishments currently in stock at the shop;
For this birthday card I've used a length of the Rose organza ribbon in red:
I simply trimmed away the mesh backing and added them to my card using a length of double-sided tape. Then, to mirror the vivid shade of scarlet, I added a row of the vintage-style Blank Tickets across the bottom and layered my other embellishments on top:

You get 20 red , 20 blue and 20 white tickets in the £1 pack so there's no need to use them sparingly!
So I sneaked in a few of the white tickets for contrast:
 And here's the finished thing once again:
While mine was a birthday card, the red + white tickets and the red rose organza trim will make the ideal additions to your handmade Christmas cards too!
Julie :-)

p.s: Did you know 3DJean has a Facebook page where you can hear about the newest additions to the shop? You can find it here.


  1. Very pretty. I love the red flowers and all the great layers and textures.
    Have a great day!

  2. A great combination. The tickets are a clever idea for a border. I might just pinch that one!
