C'est Francais


I places an order last weekend with the lovely Teresa at My Crafty Heart and one of the things I bought were some new Spellbinders Ephemera papers. They are quite thin, double sided and full of really interesting images which you can cut out and use on your creations. So I decide to have a play and for my card I used 3 sheets of the paper including one for the backing. I cut the main image from another sheet and the stamp on top of the image and the Paris plaque on the left hand side from another.

I used a TH distressing tool and DI Frayed Burlap. I added a die cut Dienamics Eiffel tower and some jute. The other die cut was made using part of a Sizzix sign die. I also used the words Carte Postale and the Paris watermark from part of a TH French Market clear stamp stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa on the backing paper at the bottom left and up the bottom right hand side.
