My base is Early Espresso card stock. Next is a piece of Marnia Mist card stock, using the Big Shot and the Embossing Folder Vintage Wallpaper I ran it through. This Embossing Folder is a must!!! I love it!!!! I then sponged the edges with Marina Mist ink. Next I cut a piece of our Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack Regals, I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch on the bottom. at the top of it I wrapped some Chantilly 1/2 Crochet Trim around.
Using the Big Shot and the Top Note Die I die cut a piece out of Very Vanilla card stock. I inked the En Francais in the center with Crumb Cake and then placed my die cut piece over it and rubbed gently. I then took the tower from Artistic Etchings inked it in Early Espresso ink and stamped off to the right a little. Clear mount stamps make it so easy for placement! I then stamped the other images randomly in the following colors Early Espresso, Always Artichoke, and Marina Mist. After I inked each stamp I stamped off on a piece of scratch paper before stamping onto the card stock to make it lighter and softer feel. I then sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink. I placed Stampin' Dimensionals behind to pop it up.
For the finishing touches I added a bow made from the 1/2 Crochet Trim called Chantilly. I added one of our Neutrals Designer Buttons to the center after I tied a piece of 1/8 Early Espresso Taffeta Ribbon through it. In the center I placed one of the Jewel Pearls. To the right of the Top Note die cut piece I added two Jewel Pearls. I just love how this card turned out!
