Paris. These are simply gorgeous images to play with and I can't wait to play with the others in the plate. Please check out The StampSmith blog for lots more inspiration from some very talented ladies.
I stamped this image on glossy white cardstock and sponged it with Old Paper distress ink to give it an aged look. I used my Labels 4 Nesties to diecut the stamped image and traced around the outside of the diecut onto chocolate cardstock and freehand cut it out so I wouldn't have to use the next size up, which is too big for my liking. I'm a thrifty gal and like to get the most out of my crafty supplies! :)
I trimmed up a lace doily to layer in behind the folded patterned paper along with some Prima flowers to give the card a feminine look. The folded layers are held down at the tips with 1/8" dimensional squares. Stay tuned for another trip to Paris soon!
Thanks for stoppin' by! :)
