Green And Beige Eiffel Tower

I thought it was time to add a masculine card to my blog.

This is the card that I made for my dad this year, using the Dovecraft Sweet Paris papers and matching stamps.

Firstly, a couple of strips of different papers from the Dovecraft Sweet Paris were cut and added to the left side of the card blank. A few lengths of cream crochet thread were then wrapped around the papers and tied.

Next, the front of the card was masked off using a scrap of paper die cut with a Nestie circle. Then the circle area was blended using Tim Holtz Antique Linen and Bundled Sage distress inks.

Whilst the mask was still in place, the flourish stamp from the Autumn Leaves Rhona Farrer Flourishes v.2 was stamped using the Bundled Sage ink. The French Text background stamp from the Bo Bunny It Is Written stamp set was also stamped using the Tim Holtz Forest Moss distress ink as was the Paris Postmark stamp from the Stampers Anonymous Visual Artistry stamp set.

Next, the mask was removed and the flourish stamp was stamped across the circle using the Antique Linen ink. The Fleur de Lis stamp, from the Dovecraft Sweet Paris Eiffel Tower stamp set, was stamped into the circle using the Forest Moss ink, but coloured over using Copic marker YG95 as it didn't show up enough. This was also covered with Ranger Glossy Accents to make it stand out even more.

Next the Eiffel Tower image from the same stamp set was also stamped over the edge of the circle using the Forest Moss ink.

The sentiment was composed using stamps from two stamp sets. The 'Happy' stamp was from the Elzybells Swirly Sentiments stamp set and the 'Birthday' stamp from the Kaisercraft Birthday stamp set. Both were stamped using Tim Holtz Pumice Stone Distress ink.

The inside of the card was also masked and inked and stamped to match the front of the card.
