Peek Of The Week - Pretty In Pink...!

This time around I’d like to show you a card I made for a recent TV show.  The object of the exercise was to demonstrate how to make a comparatively simple project, and at the same time make the point that, sometimes, a card that is uncomplicated, unfussy and straightforward can be much more effective than one that comes with all the whistles and bells that we can fit on to it!

I began with a piece of backing paper I liked and this dictated the rest of the colour theme. I created two matts and layers with a pretty pink pearlised card stock and backing paper.

Next, using the same pink card stock, I used two Tattered Lace essential square dies to create a thick frame.  On to this I layered the Totally Entwined square die cut which was then mounted on to the card blank with foam pads, which gave a little added dimension.

After creating the centre embellishment using the Charisma Frames One die set I then die cut the butterfly and sentiment out of white card stock which I’d first covered with Sticky Roll, which meant that once the die cuts were complete I could peel off the top layer and cover them in glitter.

When the butterfly and sentiment were stuck on to the card I finished it off with a few white pearl embellishments.

This card is quick and easy to make but I feel it’s as effective as some cards that are way more complicated and fussy… food for thought perhaps, next time you need to make a card in a hurry?


  1. Simply beautiful! I need to try sticky roll it certainly made the butterfly beautiful! Have a Lovely Day x

  10. The forex market is so large and has so many participants that no single entity (not even a central bank or the mighty Chuck Norris himself) can control the market price for an extended period of time. The recent arrest of the founder of forex trading company Profit Trading illustrates how spurious these claims are, and that these companies are usually fronts for elaborate Ponzi schemes. It used to be very hard for us little people to engage in the forex market but, thanks to the advent of the internet, electronic trading, and retail brokers, the difficult barriers to entry in forex trading have all been taken down. You may request transaction data for up to 15 trades that occur in the same currency pair immediately before and after your trade.

Nevertheless, telemedicine and online pharmacies businesses in India must comply with existing techno legal laws of India. But this is not happening as on date and many e-commerce portals have been facing heat of law enforcement agencies of India. For instance, Maharashtra's FDA has already ordered filing of FIRs against Snapdeal, its CEO Kunal Bahl, directors and distributors for online sale of prescription drugs. Similarly the Indian government has just clarified about the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in e-commerce sector of India so that foreign exchange related violations can be better tackled. The Delhi High Court has already ordered the government to investigate 21 e-commerce websites for possible violations of foreign direct investment (FDI) laws. But as on date the techno legal compliances for e-commerce industry in India are not complied with by a dominant majority of e-commerce businesses.

    Ecommerce has allowed firms to establish a market presence, or to enhance an existing market position, by providing a cheaper and more efficient distribution chain for their products or services. One example of a firm that has successfully used ecommerce is Target. This mass retailer not only has physical stores, but also has an online store where the customer can buy everything from clothes to coffee makers to action figures. Amazon, by contrast, is a primarily an ecommerce-based business that built up its operations around online purchases and shipments to consumers. Individual sellers can also engage in ecommerce, establishing shops on their own websites or through marketplaces such as eBay or Etsy. Such marketplaces, which gather multitudes of sellers, serve as platforms for these exchanges. The purchases are typically fulfilled by the private sellers, though some online marketplaces take on such responsibilities as well. Ecommerce transactions are typically be done through a computer, a tablet, or a smartphone.
