Collage Curios Card

Hello Everyone

Today I am sharing one of the cards we made in class this month. We used the delicious Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper, and stamped the background at the bottom of the card with the En Francais background stamp.

We added half of one of the Paper Doilies from the Spring/Summer catalogue from Stampin' Up! We topped it with images from the Collage Curios stamp set. We heat embossed the ring with Gold Embossing Powder.

Do you see that Natural Trim Ribbon - also from the Spring/Summer catalogue. I just cut a couple of inches and frayed the bottom to get that effect.

I picked up the ink colours from the paper for the greeting, (Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla and Cajun Craze).

Here is another version I did with this design. I used the Soda Pop Tops, whose sizes match up with Collage Curios.

You can see on the close up that while the small Soda Pop Top is as it comes in the packet, the larger one has been run through the Big Shot to flatten our the edges. I played for a while until I got this right and used some thick card to protect my plates.

I hope you like todays cards. Back soon with more.

Love Elizabeth X
