Baja Flowers: Fast and Fabulous from Stampin’ Up!

Here is a pretty little card I made this weekend.  I love its simple elegance.

  Baja-Flowers

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.

    I love your card with the En Francais background, I agree that it looks very elegant. A background stamp used properly (as you did on this card) makes a card look very professional and “finished” if you know what I mean by finished. It looks very classy, not cutesy at all – a job very well done!!!!

    Thanks so much for your comment. That classy look is what I aim for most of the time–occasionally I will drift into cutesy, and enjoy those as well, but not as my primary style! I hope you will keep coming back, and sign up for my newsletter if you havent already!
