Bonsoir my friends! Today I am going to share a card and the theme is Paris. For this card I kept the usual touch of vintage colours and mostly black. In this card I incorporated embossing, stamping and rub-ons. For the embossing, used Tim Holtz postal folder and distressed it with distress inks.  For the back ground applied stamping with the focal point the Eiffel tower, underneath made some lines which I normally do with the edges of an old credit card. A pocket watch with glossy accents on, a postage stamp also was stamped and some wording rub ons were added.On top of that fitted the embossed patten and decorated it.

Supplies List

  • A4 Ivory card
  • Shrink plastic
  • Rub-ons
  • Ranger Distress ink pads
  • Lace & seam binding ribbon
  • Feathers
  • Tim Holtz Sizzix Texture Fades Embossing Folders - Distressed Frame & Postal Set
  • Tim Holtz Alterations Sizzix Bigz Die - Tattered Florals
  • Tim Holtz Visual Artistry Collection - Stampers Anonymous
  • Stamps - Live Your Dreams, Pocket Watch by Visible Image
  • Ranger Inkssentials Glossy Accents

As an embellishment I made a flower from lace, an old button with some black feathers  and  bow to give it that female soft touch. Added a stamp and embellished it with glossy accents to make the wording protruding, and a flower made from a soda can with a little mother of pearl button on top. I do like to recycle materials and I don't throw away cans of beers or soda, actually I cut the top and bottoms out, cut one side and store them flattened down. Since I began crafting I became for conscious how many stuff we throw away which we can make other possible ways with them and protect our environment.

At the end added the greeting message with a little embellishment on top.

For the shrink plastic I used the same design as the embossing folder, actually I do really love how many things you really can do with shrink plastic and also it’s fun to do.
