Another Ooh La La Card!

Can you ever have too much of Paris?  Emma and Caitlin would say "no!"  They went last April with a group from their school.  Emma was especially in love with Paris and confessed to me that she was sad to leave (and they'd been gone 10 days).  Well, I don't want to leave this Parisian Blossoms suite.  And today, I DID stamp on my card, using Parisian Beauty (my last post's card used no stamping, just dies).

Lots of fancy details on this card!  

I stamped the Eiffel Tower image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Pool Party cardstock, then used the solid outline Parisian die to cut it.  The "merci" sentiment is die-cut just once and adhered to the card base with a Fine-Tip Glue Pen.

More details:
  • The script image was stamped on Petal Pink cardstock in Petal Pink ink for a subtle background that doesn't compete with the two beautiful patterns (from Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper).  What makes it a specialty paper is the champagne foil in the various patterns in the pack.
  • Notice the Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim edging the left side of the card.  It adds a sweet touch!
  • Using Basic Black cardstock for a card base and mat makes all the other details of this card stand out.  I also love the sophistication and class it adds.
  • Champagne rhinestones!  I LOVE THESE!!!!  The metallic edge of the Petal Pink ribbon is even in champagne!
  • Soft Suede ink and a Stampin' Sponge were used to create a slightly vintage look to the Parisian Blossoms papers.  It's a look I never tire of.
