Merci Beaucoup

The weekend is here! Yipee! I have another fun creation to share with you today! I just love the color combination from the Play Date Cafe color challenge!! Bravo Burgundy and Bermuda Bay are a fantastic, elegant duo! The card sketch is from the Cupcake Craft challenge and I just love square card layouts since I can add so many more goodies to my card!

  • My card base was cut from Basic Black card stock to 5-1/4" x 10-1/2", scored and folded in half to make a 5-1/4" square card!
  • The Bermuday Bay double-side DSP was the perfect back drop for my card, then I flipped the leftover paper over and cut out a scallop circle with my Big Shot!
  • Then I took another piece of Basic Black card stock and embossed it with my Finial Press folder - honestly my favorite! This folder is great since the impression is so clear and crisp! The pattern is so elegant too!
  • I stamped my Eiffel Tower in Basic Black ink and colored in some of the circles with my Bermuda Bay marker! The brush tip is my favorite! The Stampin' Up! markers are the best since they are dual tipped and come in all the SU colors! Plus this year they are now offering a 6-pack of the In Colors (including Bermuda Bay)!
