Here is a pretty little card I made this weekend. I love its simple elegance.
The flowers are from Fast and Fabulous, stamped in Chocolate Chip and Baja Breeze. I used a little Peach Parfait Marker for the centers. I used the masking technique to make the flowers look like they are behind each other. Do you know how to do this technique? I will post a little video tutorial for you as soon as I resolve some software problems. Those gremlins are at it again!
The card stocks are Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, and Sahara Sand (one of new favoirte colors), stamped tone-on-tone with En Francais. The Designer Series Paper is from Elegant Soiree, and the ribbon is Baja Breeze Seam Binding with an Antique Brad.
I find myself turning to the En Francais stamp for backgrounds frequently these days. It adds such a nice touch to a project–elegant interest and texture without being distracting. I hesitated a long time before ordering this stamp. And now it has become one of my go-to stamps because it is so versatile. If you haven't tried this stamp yet, I highly recommend it.
