Hi there blog friends!! I’m back with a card and and a video. I am head over heels in love with new paper from The Girls Paperie – you’re probably going to see bits and pieces of this for a while. Aren’t you glad I’m not hoarding it? My card today uses a sweet stamp set that I’ve had my eyes on for a long time from Flourishes called From the Desk Of. It has a vintage feel and it it’s oh, so elegant. I decided to pair it with the shabby chic look of the Girls Paperie paper and water color using some sultry colors from my Distressed Inks. The video is a variation of a technique I’ve already shown but I think it’s easier – I’ve settled on another way to do the rolled Scor-Tape flowers and it’s quicker. I’ve experimented with this a bit and I have a whole basket full of those flowers now, lol!!
I cut my image from Spellbinders Classic Ovals LG and smudged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink while the paper was still in the die. I then backed my image with Spellbinders Lacey Ovals. I spread three ribbons across the card and cinched them with a double Peg Bow on the right side of the car. To secure the ribbon, I cut out a notch on the left side of the card and the ribbon fits perfectly, then I accented the notch with an element from Spellbinders Parisian Motifs.
