I'm thrilled to share my "blog hop" project with you and I couldn't resist grabbing my Small Alphabet Metal Die to create my card these dies are so fun, I love the shapes in this die set too.
I started with this great patterned paper from October Afternoon Travel Girl it's an 8"x 8" pad, I love the pattern papers in this collection, so the first thing that came to my mind when I saw this sheet of paper that I used on my card was my daughters friend... she loves Paris, and hopes to go their someday.
So my card is dedicated to all you Paris lovers.
The Eiffel Tower is cut out in grey textured cardstock using my Silihouette Cameo, the image can be found -HERE. I sponged the edges using a dark grey ink, then again gently sponged the edges and top with a bit of white ink, the textured cardstock really gives the tower a weathered look.
I wanted the tower to pop off the card, so I used a double layer of black craft foam (fun foam) to pop it up.
Craft foam is such a solid color, and sometimes bright, so I decided to tone down the color a bit using my Tim Holtz Tea Dye ink pad.
Below is a photo of the alphabet letters cut out of craft foam un-inked. I then took my sponge tool and added ink to the top of the foam.
I used two types of foam and both die cut very well. The pink is just plain craft foam, the blue is sticker back. The sticker back is my favorite for using with the small letters, it makes it much easier to add to you cards.
Close up of the hearts.
The lace ribbon is from Stampin' Up, kind of gave it a frilly-vintage feel.
Added a bit of the pattern paper to the inside of the card too.
I hope you enjoyed my Paris tour of my card :)
