Parisian Beauty ~ Notecard

Hello lovely blog readers and welcome back to my little piece of the interwebs!
Thanks for visiting my blog today, and I hope that you leave with some inspiration.

Today I wanted to share a card that I got inspiration for (CASE'd) from the Mini Catalogue using the Parisian Beauty Bundle. I was so inspired by the sample they had shown in the catalogue and particularly the gorgeous background created with one of our gorgeous embossing folders and how the Eiffel Tower was stamped in multiple bright and happy colours!

Be sure to check the bottom of the post for links and pictures of all the products I have used to create this fun card, all of which are available to purchase in my store.

Here's a look at the completed card, which is actually notecard size.
In my store we sell the fabulous Notecards and Envelopes which are mini sized cards that make for the cutest little notecards to send to anyone special!

I have cut a piece of Sahara Sand to cover the entire notecard base and then cut a piece slightly smaller as pictured which I have stamped with a mixture of the coordinating stamps from the Parisian Beauty Stamp set in a mixture of Gray Ganite, Gorgeous Grape and Pretty Peacock Inks.
After I had stamped this piece, I than ran it though the Subtle Impressions Textured Embossing Folder to add this beautiful texture. I have then distressed the edges with the blade of my Paper Snips.

To finish decorating the card, I have stamped an Eiffel Tower using a mixture of; Lovely Lipstick, Gorgeous Grape, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Bermuda Bay Inks.
I find this technique most effective when you turn the stamp over on a block and apply the inks with our fabulous Sponge Daubers (linked below). This allows you to blend the colours slightly together before stamping to get this rainbow stamped effect.

I have then decorated with some Silver Metallic Thread and a die cut 'Merci' from the coordinating die cuts, which I have die cut twice for an in-laid die cut look.
To do this, you simply die cut the word 'merci' first from the Lovely Lipstick Cardstock strip and then die cut the same 'merci' once more from Daffodil Delight Cardstock and piece this die cut back inside the Lovely Lipstick Piece.
I have used Stampin' Dimensionals to keep it all in place before adhering it over the top of the Eiffel Tower. 

I hope that you enjoyed today's post and got some inspiration to get all French inspired and get creative.

Here you can see the card that I CASE'd from the samples from the Stampin' Up! mini catalogue.
