And today's share is....

Today's card is another made using the Carte Postale set. This set is so versatile it's a must for anyones collection.

To make this card I randomly stamped the leaves image onto the lower portion of the Brocade Blue card. I then did the same on the Very Vanilla cardstock using the Night of Navy inkpad stamping a second image before reinking. I then mounted the Very Vanilla to the Night of Navy piece of card. 3 Silver Eyelets were added to the right hand side and Silver cord was also wrapped around the card. This was then mounted to the main card as shown. Next comes the tag. I have stamped the flower image and 'Merci' using Night of Navy onto a piece of Very Vanilla and punched out with Tag Punch. This is then layered onto a piece of Brocade Blue and trimmed to match the Tag shape with a nice border. Using the handheld rectangle punch, I have punched a slit in the top of the tags and then added some silver cord to embellish. Finally the tag is mounted to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.
