Friends in Paris

Hi Everyone!
Today I have a card to share with you.

I have not made any vintage card for quite some time, so 
I challenge myself to make a masculine vintage card
to showcase friendship and love
for month of February.

I used the layout from LLC February Challenge- Tina's Sketch.

I stamped it on 2 white cardstocks with navy and brown ink and
distressed all paper edges with inks and distress tool.
I fussy cut out the word "FRIENDS" from the brown image 
and mounted them on a piece of frayed natural color 
linen ribbon with 3D foam dots.

The phrase on the image "Let us embark on this journey and
together we can realise our wildest dreams" is so sweet.

The card measures 6"x 6".
The DPs are from Pion Designs' 
For Father and Studio of Memories collections.
I fussy cut out the butterflies from the DP,  
sprayed them with perfect pearl mist and 
used them to decorate the card.

Other embellishments I used are:
Dusty Attic chicken wire and swirl chipboards,
Clock face diecut using Tim Holtz die,
TH "Us" lightbulb Vintage Trinkets,
TH Idea-ology Swivel Clasp,
Jute mesh ribbon and cluny lace.

Cream jute mesh ribbon, 18mm cream fine vintage cluny lace, 
and 8mm cream vintage fine scallop lace are 
all available at the Ribbon Girl Shop.

I also decorated the inside with Pion Designs paper
and Dusty Attic chipboard.

Hope you enjoy this visit, and thanks so much for stopping by.
Have a great weekend!

Hi Katie, this is my first time to your blog and I love how you create. This card is really neat, I love the bulb and chain embellishment on the front and then the chicken wire cut inside is so awesome. Pion papers are always so lovely and this card is gorgeous too.
