Anniversary Card | My Favorite Things - In Paris | CTS#324


Bonjour!

Sharing an anniversary card today that was created for CAS(E) this Sketch #324 and used a mix of MFT and Lawn Fawn Products. Here is the sketch:


So excited to announce that this card won for the CTS #324! Yippee!


I started by blending Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink onto white cardstock and die cut it with MFT's Stitched Dome STAX Die-namics. Two clouds (from the "Love Bugs" Set) were stamped with the same ink and die cut. The balloon and Eiffel Tower (from the "In Paris" Set) were stamped, watercolored and die cut. The word "happy" from Lawn Fawn's "happy happy happy" set was stamped/die cut; all die cuts were cut/glued/stacked together multiple times to create dimension. 

All of the pieces were placed onto the front of an A-2 top-folding card card base to determine their final layout. The dome was glued into place followed by the Eiffel Tower. The sentiment was stamped onto the card base using the MISTI and the remaining pieces were either glued or adhered onto the card with foam tape.

This card was also entered into the following challenges:









Thanks for stopping by!

  1. This reminds me of my recent weekend in Paris. Didn't see any balloons but we did have stunning weather and we couldn't miss the Eifel tower. Love dawn x

    1. Very, very jealous of the recent trip! We had one long afternoon in Paris during a layover about 7 years ago and we took the train into town from the airport. So glad that our one "must see site" was the Notre Dame Cathedral - I've got so many great pictures and was heartbroken over the recent fire. Hope you were able to visit it while you were there as well. Hugs - Rachelle
