C’est magnifique!

Here's a card we did at a recent workshop.  I was working with a brand new hostess who said she loved "all things French" — what better set could I show than Artistic Etchings with the beautiful Eiffel Tower image.  Marina Mist is the perfect color for this card; it reminds me of the classic "French Blue" look. The backdrop gets a wow factor with the Big Shot and the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  After stamping the Eiffel Tower image on Very Vanilla card stock, I stamped the background stamp En Francais at the bottom, then sponged around the whole image using Crumb Cake ink and a Stampin' Sponge to give it a worn look.  A piece of Marina Mist 5/8" Satin Ribbon is held neatly in place by a Very Vanilla 5/8" Jumbo Brad.  I was delighted to find that I could stamp on this metal surface using StazOn Jet Black ink and the tiny flower image from Clearly For You stamp set.  While this fabulous stamp set isn't available right now (it was from the Occasions Mini Catalog), it's my hope it will make it into the new Idea Book & Catalog in July.  For the final touch, I stamped amour from Artistic Etchings on Marina Mist card stock, punched it out with the Modern Label Punch, attached a Basic Pearl and tucked it under the ribbon.  Voila!
