October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I would like to dedicate this card to all whose lives have been touched by this disease and whose families help support them during this difficult time.


  • Paper and Cardstock
    • Bazzill Gold Metallic, 5 1/2” x 11”     ( BAZ-12-1272   $1.29)
    • The Websters Pages combo pack papers I used (Postcards from Paris and Sweet as Cherry Pie) are not currently available;
      • Substitute Websters Pages, Seaside Retreat/Garden Gala/Nature's Story pad     ( WEB-6x6-WPK17   $6.99)
        (Webster’s Pages Petite Papers Pad was a great way for me to sample many of the lines. The papers are very vintage and have a wonderful feel.
        They are a double-sided, thick cardstock. I love the colors too!)
      • Cut selected papers to:
        • 5 1/4” x 5 1/4” for background for card
        • 5 1/4” x 1 1/4” for decorative strip
        • 4” x 4” for punched oval
        • 3” x 5” for photo corners
  • Inks and Embossing Powders
  • Embellishments
    • Kaiser Craft Pearls, Champagne     ( KAI-PRL-714   $1.99)
    • Maya Road Trinket Pin, Pink Pearl Flowers     ( MR-PIN-TK1213   $3.79)
    • Basic Grey Basics, Manila Micro Monograms     ( BG-S-BAS-2573   $$1.59)
    • Pink Satin Ribbon, 5”
    • Ivory Lace, 6”
  • Tools


  • Fold your gold cardstock in half to form your base card. It will open from the bottom.

  • Punch out four photo corners in blue using Martha Stewarts Photo Corner Punch
    (I keep saying it but I LOVE this punch! I can have any paper photo corner I want and I never run out!).

  • Using your craft mat and ink blending tool, edge the photo corners and 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" paper with brushed corduroy distress ink.

  • Attach your photo corners to your paper and glue to your card base.

  • Take your strip of paper (blue also) and punch the apron lace border design from Fiskars in it on the right side.

  • Edge this in ink with your blending tool also.

  • I used double stick tape to add my lace to the back of this strip. I left about ¼” of lace showing on the LEFT side.

  • I glued the finished strip to the card after I had trimmed it to 5 1/4”.

  • Take your pink ribbon and make the cancer ribbon design. Add a glue dot to hold it together.

  • Use one of the trinket pins and attach to the ribbon only.

  • Attach the ribbon to the card at the top of the blue strip with mounting tape.

  • Punch a 3” scallop oval out of another selection of paper.
    I used a beige color.

  • Using a krylon gold pen, edge the oval all around.

  • Using your blending tool, add brushed corduroy ink to the oval also.

  • Spray some water in your hands and toss the droplets onto the card.
    DAB (do not wipe) the water away to create blotches in the ink. (It gives it a really vintage look.)

  • Add the word “faith” in lower case letters (micro mono basic grey).

  • Add mounting tape to the back of the oval and attach to the right of the card.

  • Add pearls on the oval and also on the waist of the dress form in the strip.

  • Add one pearl in the center of the trinket pin flower.
Thank you for stopping by today. See you again soon!
