Paris

Paris, have you been there?  I was once there in my youth for about 17 hours; we ran and walked all over the city for the day and most of the night. We saw many of the attractions there, but missed out on the Louvre, it was closed that day. 

A good friend of mine is also quite fond of Paris, and when I think of Paris I remember how she loved the trip she took with her daughter several years ago. When I got the March Simon Says Stamp card kit with all its wonderful yellow's, gray's and springtime Paris feel...I knew I had to make her a card.


I used the stamp and one of the papers in the kit, a scrap of yellow paper and some black seam binding ribbon. The kit also contains a die which is a line of round holes, I used them to thread my ribbon.  I stamped a bit of tone on tone for the card base just to provide a bit of texture. I also stamped the flowers in Lemon Yellow Hero Arts ink onto the paper, along with a bit of soft granite and Lawn Fawn black licorice. I used  a pierced rectangle die from MFT to isolate my image and stamped "Friend".

The inside has another stamp from the set "you've been on  my mind" along with the flower images. I think she will enjoy the card.

  8. So wishing I'd splurged to get that kit, as I adore your card, Cat! May end up getting the die with the holes which caught my eye first time I saw it & now I see it can also be used with ribbon--great effect! Lucky friend--she'll love this!
