I bought this set of Sizzix stamps and dies a few months ago and finally used it for a good friend's Birthday card. I wanted to create a vintage look with lots of layers and embellishments. I played around until I was happy with the layout. I don't think people always realise how much goes into designing a card. It isn't just what you use but how you use it.
Stamps and Dies - Sizzix Graphic 45 with distress ink pads
Paper - Craftwork Cards Venetian
Rose - Wild Orchid
Other - Doily, frame, gauze, lace, stringy stuff

I agree Marianne, most cards we make take a lot more time that people would think. Its a shame not everyone appreciates handmade.
Love your perfume card, great design
