There were some very scrumptious papers in the latest edition of Creative Cardmaking, by Craftwork Cards. They are French inspired and in a lovely palette of pink & grey. There are stripes, scripts & florals as well as a couple of sheets of silver pearlised paper. I used a couple of the script papers and a new shape for this card. I wanted a C5-ish sized card so I searched through my carts and found this shape in Storybook. I played around with the sizes until I got one that would fit a C5 envelope- this one was cut at 6 1/4". The shape was cut twice in white card then joined together along the top edge. Another piece was cut from paper and adhered to the card base. A smaller panel with a shadow was cut from white/pink script paper, wrapped with polka dot sheer ribbon, then adhered- slightly offset-with foam pads to the base card. I cut an Eiffel tower from pink pearlised card, embossed it with a swirl embossing folder, then adhered it to the side of the panel.The sentiment was cut from the same pearlised cardstock as the tower, shadowed in white, then adhered to the panel with foam pads. A smattering of bling was added to the tower, and a Prima bloom to the ribbon- et voila! Le/la (not sure which!) cart est fini!
