It's not often that I make cards anymore, and I feel I am well out of practice, but I needed a thank you one and none of the ones that I still had were suitable. It's for a Francophile couple, and so I felt it needed both male and female touches as well as a Paris theme of course...
The base is Kraft Card, covered with a piece of distressed paper from the French Industrial collection.
I put a piece of Blue Kraft Core paper through an embossing folder, sanded the raised bit and then inked it lightly. Next came the Stampendous Paris stamp, stamped in Plum Archival. I cut it in a Spellbinder die and inked around the edges while the paper was still in the die with the Plum Archival and some Weathered Wood Distress Ink. I stamped the stamp again, fussy cut the flowers, coloured them with Distressmarkers and then layered them for some more dimension.
Well I hope you like the card, it was quite quick to make.
Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful creative week.
