Pink and Green Regency Chair

This is the card that I made for my nan's birthday using the beautiful Papermania Signature Regency paper pad. I actually cut out the chair image from one of the papers.

This is a very simple card to make. The chair image was cut out from the patterned paper and adhered to a circle of cream card cut into a circle using the Nestabilities die. This was then matted onto a green scalloped circle, also using the Nestabilities.
A strip of the striped paper from the Regency paper pad was matted onto the green card and then across a panel of the pink paper and attached to the card blank.
The greeting was stamped using the 'A Perfect day' stamp from the Papermania Jesse Edwards Boutique stamp set and the Versafine Spanish Moss archival pigment ink. This was cut out and matted onto the green card. The chair panel was attached at the top of the card and the sentiment to the bottom.
Lavender self-adhesive pearls were then added to the edge ofthe chair panel and the sentiment panel.

The inside of the card was then decorated using the Regency papers and the 'Happy Birthday' stamp from the Papermania Clare Curd Sentiment stamp set.
