I didn't shoot off my usual 30 photos while making this card,
I was hacked and spent my weekend fixing my computer
so I could get my posts done.
No pressure, right...
The card base is black cardstock, layered with some peachy which
I distressed with
Tim Holtz's Vintage Photo Distress Ink from Ranger.
I added one of the sheets from the Parisian Daydream journal sets
(I used an embossing pen to "trace" the scroll design and
embossed it with Recollections Opaque Powder in Ebony .
I cut out a few of the postcards, mounted/framed, embellished and
attached one with double sided tape and the other with foam (for dimension).
This was originally going to be a
thank you card
to match a bottle topper I made
(see next post),
but while burning the midnight oil
"C'est La Vie!"
kept coming into my mind
(gotta trust those little thoughts, ya know) -
so I created a Word document
printed it out, embossed it, and mounted it on the
roses sheet from the Parisian Daydream set.
(the square embossing around the sentiment was
supposed to be glitter -
I grabbed the wrong bottle, by mistake, lol).
The bling is a brand new item for me,
I've always bought little packages of rhinestones/gemstones at my local WalMart and
attached them with Tacky Glue.
I love how easy these Recollections Adhesive Rhinestones are.
I cut out one of the "coin's" for the Eiffel Tower Tours and attached some black cardstock to the back of it and attached it with foam. (primarily to give me space to hide all the glue from the embellishments).
The peach roses were pink, I simply dabbed them on a
Dried Marigold Tim Holtz Distree Ink pad.
The ribbons were a grey sheer from a Dollar Tree which I inked with some
It's so nice to learn that I don't have to buy EVERYTHING -
I can alter so much of what I already have to fit a project!
Great tip to remember!
Thanks so very much for stopping by.
Wishing you a BLESSED day!
