I'm busy making birthday cards at the moment as I have quite a few family birthdays just before Christmas. You would think by now I would be organised and have them made so I can concentrate on Christmas......mmmmm well maybe not !
I started with the background and blended Tattered Rose DI over some white card. Then I screwed the card up into ball and carefully unfolded it and use Victorian Velvet DI and rubbed it over the top. It highlights the creases in the card created from screwing it up. Then I ironed it flat and stamped the flourishes and text which are Katzelkraft stamps. I stuck some Tissue Wrap to some white card and die cut the doily using the Tim Holtz die. The gorgeous cage is a Poppy die and I've stamped the french text over it and blended some DI around the edges. I've slipped the text in between the cage bars, which is made from a Crafty Individuals stamp as is the Just for You text.
The main image is a Katzelkraft stamp and the word Paris is an Elusive Images stamp. The gorgeous brad is a Marah Johnson, and if anyone knows where I can buy these I would love to know as I can't find them anywhere ! The little ticket is also a Crafty Individuals stamp and the beautiful lace is from Linda's Funkie Junkie Boutique, which has a 10% sale at the moment so well worth hopping over there.
I'm entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge which is Inspiration Francais and the Our Creative Corner which is to make your own background.
It's been a beautiful day today so we've managed to get out and about and enjoy the gorgeous Autumn colours that are still on the trees. I hope you've all had a wonderful week end too !
