Golfing all in Blue

Hi Bloggers.

Another golfing with Ethel & Murray card today. All in blue, image not coloured in just to show that you don't need to colour in if you don't want to.

I stamped the image and the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Fore Stamp Set using Cobalt Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I edged both panels with Faded Jeans Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam and then mounted them on to some Deep Blue Card.

For the background, I ran a piece of white card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Radiant Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern. I inked all over with Faded Jeans using Cut n Dry.

I ran a piece of 6mm Hi Tack Tape along the right-hand side of the background and ruffled some Royal Blue American Seam Binding along it. I ran another piece of Hi Tack Tape near to it and ruffled some Sky Blue American Seam Binding along it.

I assembled the card as show adding some buttons to the American Seam Binding border and some faux stitching around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. Hi Julia,
    As I don't stamp a lot I love the idea of just stamping and not colouring in, great effect. Love the ribbon and buttons.


  2. Hi Julia, love the colours on this, sometimes it is better not to colour in. Bx

  6. Lovely card Julia - great colours. Hugs, Claire x

  7. HI Julia - great card and I agree the monochrome look can be very effective. I am a fan of the ruffled ribbon too as it adds a great touch and not too hard to achieve -in theory as long as you don't get stuck to the redline tape yourself!lol

  8. Hi Julia, Getting more fond of Ethel and Murray with just the one colour
    don't like the bright ones but the last few you have done is
    bringing me around.

  17. This is lovely in blue Julia - I have always coloured my Ethel and Murray but I am now a fan of leaving them as you have done. The buttons are so effective and are such a good embellishment.
