Parisian Thanks


I’ve been meaning to get around to completing Keesh’s Sketch Challenge #12 since Saturday.  Today is the perfect day for stamping – it’s so cold and windy outside, that inside with the heater on is the only sane place to be.

Here is the sketch challenge image:


Now, I don’t own any tools to cut ovals and a freehand oval is just not that attractive!  So, I’ve used one of the stamps from Gallery as my focal image.  Here’s my card:

  • parisian thanksMy card base is Baja Breeze (I am quite convinced that it is the new Cool Caribbean 🙂 )
  • A piece of Parisian Breeze Specialty Designer Paper was added.  The flowers are just gorgeous.
  • I used my Scallop Edge Punch on a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock.
  • Since I didn’t have any of the ribbon I wanted to use on my card (1″ Baja Stitched), I cut a 1″ piece of Baja Breeze and added faux stitching with my White Gel Pen.
  • White Taffeta Ribbon was tied around this layer.
  • My focal image is one of the frames from the Gallery stamp set in the Spring mini catalogue.  I stamped it in Chocolate Chip ink on Whisper White paper, and cut it out.  I then adhered this to some Chocolate Chip cardstock, and cut around the layers.
  • The word ‘thanks’ from Thank You Kindly is stamped in Baja Breeze ink.  I used my Stamp a ma Jig for perfect placement.
  • I have added some Felt Fusion Too flowers as an accent.  In the centre of the flowers is a 5/16″ Chocolate Chip brad (from the Spring Mini).  Two of these brads are also used on the bottom of the card as an accent.
