Paper Players #88

Posted on

A good Monday morning to you. I hope that you all had a nice weekend. As I mentioned yesterday, I went to see Rent and it was great! Thanks to My friend Kim, my daughter and I had a great afternoon! For this weeks Paper Players Challenge Ann has provided this sketch…

I always like to work with a sketch because it makes most of the work, the card layout, so much easier because it’s done for you. As soon as I saw this I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I used one of my favorite sets, French Foliage. The base of the card is Early Espresso and I used a piece of Well Worn Designer Series Paper for the background. I placed three 3/16″ Metallic Brads in the lower left corner, two in the brownish color and one in the aged silver color just to be a little different. I then stamped a piece of Very Vanilla with the En Français Background Wood Mount Stamp in Early Espresso Ink. I punched a piece of Cajun Craze with the Scallop Edge Border Punch and placed it underneath. The piece of ribbon across the front is Early Espresso 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon. After all of that was assembled I adhered it to the card with some Sticky Strip (I like to make sure that it’s not going anywhere!). The stamped images are from the French Foliage Stamp Set and are stamped in Cajun Craze and River Rock and I backed it with some Early Espresso. The greeting is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and is stamped in Early Espresso and punched out with the Decorative Label Punch and half of it is hidden behind the stamped images. I love the card and think I want some more Well Worn DSP! Thank you, as always, for stopping by! Have a great day!
