I have another card to share with you using Penny Black products from the ‘Merry and Joy’ release.

This card is not my usual go-to style, but it was fun making something a little different. I die cut the Scarlet Season creative die from red and green coloured card stock. I adhered the skeleton die cut layer over the top of the red flowers, but for the leaves, I used the skeleton die and embossed the details into the leaves using an embossing mat in my die cutting machine.

I created a thicker Merry sentiment, by adhering several layers together. The ‘Tis the Season’ sentiment is from an older sentiment set called Holiday Snippets.

I did lots of ink blending in the background. The cursive handwriting stamp is called Script, which is an older cling stamp.

I covered the red flowers and the merry sentiment with a little bit of clear shimmer pen.

Thanks for stopping by. To view and or purchase any of these new products from these releases, head to the Penny Black online store.

If you have any questions, just email me,

Until next time,

  1. Another gorgeous design Marion, it’s always fun to change it up, I’ve been using pastels and creating some ‘busier’ cards myself just for fun!
