Parisian Postcard

Hello, it's Gracie. This week our challenge at Classy Cards 'n Such is: Letter It. In other words use a letter or more on your creation! I went ahead and used some letter stickers on my freestyle collage card!

To make it I stamped, colored and heat embossed images from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Parisian Postcard set. I stamped some images on the background, some I heat embossed in Gold Detail on Heavyweight Vellum. Others I fussy cut and mounted using foam tape, on a pretty label die cut with Our Daily Bread Designs Vintage Flourish Pattern, from White Pearl Linen card stock. I stenciled the label with Spun Sugar Distress ink.

The bottom half of the base mat was cut from the gorgeous Stardream Rose Quartz metallic cardstock. I cut a doily from vellum with the English Tea Party die from Cheery Lynn Designs, cut it in half and adhered it on top of the pink layer with thin pieces of 1/2" Scor-tape.

Before adding the fussy cut images to the label, I added a piece of Chalk White Seam Binding, that I colored and wrinkled by spraying a mix of Peeled Paint Distress re-inker and water in a Spritzer Bottle. (You could use the Peeled Paint Distress Spray). I completed the card with a few Baby Pearls Le-Creme that go along very well with the vintage design. I adhered the finished layer on a white mat cut with A2 Matting Basics A, using 1/2" Scor-tape and then mounted it on a white card base.

I hope you enjoyed today's post! I motivate you to join our challenge this week with your crafty creation!
