Something Different

A different sort of card today!!  Friends of our went to Paris and ever since have been madly in love with all things French.  So of course, the Vintage Vogue stamp set was the perfect match up for my friend!

So how to combine Vintage Vogue with French for a birthday you might wonder!! So this is what I came up with:

Maybe French, maybe not, but at least the Eiffel Tower is!!  I stamped the Eiffel Tower onto a piece of Very Vanilla CS where I had masked a 'sun' with a circle punched from a post-it note.  I then sponged with Baja Breeze and Certainly Celery all over for the background.  Sponged edges with Soft Suede and all done!

I ruffled up some black satin ribbon and used Sticky Strip (love that stuff) to hold it down.  I used Champagne Shimmer paint to stamp a light background on the black (you can JUST see it in the background), some DSP and done!

It's not really my style of card but I know my friend will love it, so that's all that matters!

Here's what I used:

Stamps: Vintage Vogue & Tiny Tags
Inks: Early Espresso, Baja Breeze, Soft Suede & Certainly Celery
Papers: Basic Black, Soft Suede & Very Vanilla CS and Love Letter DSP
Other: Tag punch, Scallop Trim Border Punch, black satin ribbon & sponge daubers
