Merci - Grid Background, Tulips, The Best Thing - Easel card

 

Yogi here today and I was in a mood to do something French...

I'm using a die "Merci"from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE

I'm also using a quote and design element stamps from Quietfire Design ("The Best Thing"); ("Grid Background"); ("Tulips") 


Scored and folded my red textured cardstock to create my easel structure. Cut another piece same size as card (5"w x 7"h) and adhered to front.

If you've been watching Suzanne on Facebook Live on Thursday evenings, you'll have noticed she uses a clear plastic in her Stampin Platform. Great idea. I usually just shove a piece of tracing paper...

So I used the clear plastic technique and the "Grid Background" stamp and repeatedly stamped the design on white cardstock using Versafine Clair "Glamorous" stamp pad until my grid covered the whole of my cardstock. Trimmed down and adhered to card front.

Stamped the Eiffel Tower image (Darice "Paris") using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed on white cardstock. Sponged a bit of Distress "Salty Ocean" very lightly to create a cloudy sky. PS use any large stamped image or die cut or digital image of an Eiffel Tower...

Created a silhouette file of the tulips and electronically cut several from white cardstock. Stamped with a red and a green Distress pads. Applied some of the color to a craft sheet and picked up the color with a wet paintbrush. Adhered several to card front.

Die cut the "Merci" from red cardstock and adhered to card front.

Added a couple of linear flying birds with a black marker.

On the floor:

Created another piece of the grid background as well as stamping the quote with the "Glamorous" pad and clear embossed then die cut with Spellbinder's Oval die set.

Adhered one of the Tulip stamped images (the whole design with the flourishes) partially to the floor to act as my stopper.
