Cameo Card

Here's another wonderful card from Sarah!
I am back again with another card made with wonderful things from Classy Cards 'n Such

This card was a lot of fun to make, as there are several really great embellishments on there. I just love embellishments! :-)

I started with a base layer of card stock and stamped it with a cheesecloth stamp in black archival ink.  Over that I put a layer of speckled ivory card stock which I roughed up and distressed. I followed it with a layer of black card stock just enough for a narrow border.
Then on went the beautiful patterned paper from the Webster's Pages collection Spring Market/Yacht Club/Country Estate pack . I wrapped two layers of wonderful lace ribbon around the top two papers. I love how the Ecru Delight Lace looks on top of the Black Elegance Lace! NOTE: These lace ribbons look so great in person, and the best part: the ecru lace is only 50 cents per yard, and the black lace is just 75 cents per yard! I only used a total of about 12 inches of each for this card. Seriously, I absolutely love these laces and will be stocking up on more. You just can't beat their value or elegance! :-)

As you can see, this Webster's Pages paper has some really cool images on it. I love the vintage-y feel to them! I knew when I chose this one that I wanted to make sure those cool birds did not go to waste or be covered up. And when I thought of using a stamped cameo image, the tag from the Spellbinders Fancy Tags Three die set came to mind to use as a frame. I love the Victorian look of these tags! And when I placed it under the birds I just loved it, and knew right away that the pearls would be my next addition.
I put a Prima flower in the corner, and then stamped the scripture in black archival ink. There were so many different sentiments I could have chosen from to make this a card for many different occasions: birthday, thank you, thinking of you, missing you... that's what I love about these papers: you can use them for almost anything depending on your mood or the occasion.
