This week’s challenge at Classy Cards ‘n Such is Thoughtful using the range of colors from the inspiration photo (see here). There are so many pretty colors on the photo, chances are you will be inspired instantly! Adding sentiments such as “Thinking of you”, “In my thoughts”, “Here for you” and more would certainly be fitting for the challenge. There is still time to join so I hope you can share your creation with us in the next couples of days. I went for a “thinking of you” card combined with a Valentine’s theme.
I embellished the front of the card with handmade flowers. Crepe paper works wonderful for flowers and though you have to be very careful while you make them it’s oh so worth it. I sponged the petals edges with dark ink and sprayed the center with lighter tones. This gave the flowers an organic, vintage look.
When you open this pretty card you are welcomed by a 3D, pop-up Eiffel Tower! I actually cut four flaps on each side of the card with an exacto knife to adhere the towers. I added another cupid and a Thinking of you sentiment from my stamp set Parisian Postcard to the tower to finish the design!
For even more details on how I made my card, please visit Classy Cards ‘n Such. Many of the supplies used to make this card are linked below and you can get 10% off if your CCNS order them using my code Gracie-10.
