I thank the Lord Jesus Christ for the talent He has bestowed on all of us!
I have been artistic all of my life and love experimenting with different mediums and techniques. This blog is my creative outlet to share my passion for cardmaking and papercrafting!
I added one more
layer to the sketch and mirrored the cut panels behind the focal point. I had a difficult time incorporating the
horizontal strip below the tower so I thought that the Lucky Limeade panel
would suffice as the "horizontal strip".
That is what I like about sketch challenges- they are a starting point
for your own creativity :-)!
To create this card:
On Whisper White
cardstock, use Sponge Daubers to apply Pumpkin Pie and Poppy Parade Classic
Ink. Create the collage using stamps
from Artistic Etchings and Established Elegance with Pumpkin Pie, Poppy Parade
and Lucky Limeade ink.
Stamp the Eiffel
Tower as well as the Final Image using Versamark™ ink, heat emboss using
Stampin’ Emboss® Black Embossing Powder.
Mount onto Basic
Black and again onto Lucky Limeade/Basic Black following the sketch.
Use the Big Shot and emboss
a piece of Whisper White cardstock (ink the interior of the embossing folder
with Lucky Limeade ink prior to placing the WW cardstock inside). Cut into two
and mount onto Basic Black cardstock.

remainder of the card- attach the tags with a brad and wire, adhere the Satin
Bow and you are finished!
