I knew Tara would love the Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper as much as I do and I thought about coloring it as some have done. (Stay tuned next week for a card featuring this technique.) But, I am in love with the very vintage projects that one of my stampin' heroes, Lyssa Zwolanek, created for the #InspireCreateShare Stampin' Up #Convention2015, so I "borrowed" some design elements from Lyssa. You can see Lyssa's original cards here.
I started with a Basic Black card base that I embossed with the Lovely Lace Embossing Folder. Next I adhered a strip of the lacy Timeless Elegance DSP sheet to a Pink Pirouette strip and adhered this to the card base. I laid a strip of Fast Fuse Adhesive and ruched some Pink Pirouette Seam Binding Ribbon onto it.
I stamped "happy birthday" from the "Tin of Cards" stamp set in Basic Black Archival Ink onto a Very Vanilla tag cut with the Chalk Talk Framelits. I punched a couple of flowers in Pink Pirouette from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch pack and used a glue dot to adhere them together and onto the tag. I popped on one of the gorgeous Metal Rimmed Pearls and adhered the tag to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
So, so pretty and elegant!!
