Merci.....


Isn't this a lovely cut? It is, of course, the Eiffel Tower but could easily be Blackpool Tower! It is after all a replica of the iconic French landmark. I used papers from Papermania's Hampstead collection. This is a really good collection of papers for men's cards. The layout is simple- a rust mat, striped vertical border edged with an MS punch and a smaller mat wrapped with wide mesh ribbon. I cut the tower from copper & gold mirri card and adhered it to the smaller mat with foam pads. I added 3 gold candy dots to the ribbon. I cut 'Merci' from more mirri card and adhered it to the side of the tower, again with foam pads. The inside was decorated with a simple striped mat and sentiment panel and a smaller solid tower.
