A Ladies Diary - Graphic 45 - Scrapbook Boutique


It's my turn to share a project for Scrapbook Boutique.  This month I chose some beautiful stamps and a DSP paper pack from Graphics 45.  Each and every sheet of this paper/card is just beautiful and as it's all double's twice the pleasure!  Lots of blocks that could be cut to use in place of stamps many possibilities.

For my card I wanted to use the tallest of the stamps, which measures about 6 inches, So todays card is an 8.5" x 4" card suitable for a business envelope.

How elegant is she?

I've coloured her using just three distress markers and some Prisma's for blending. 

I chose two sheets of dsp and added some diagonal scoring to the bottom piece to add some interest. 
Some fussy cutting to give me the top banner, I added a little sparkle to the flower centres with Star Dust Stickles. Some Spellbinder lace and a Prima flower complete the card front.

I thought it would be fun to make this card a gift in itself, so added a 2012 calendar to the inside of the card.  Two packs of 6 months so as not to make the card too thick!
I think in this photo you can just make out the diagonal scoring to the pink/cream card too:)

All the details for this little project can be found on the Scrapbook Boutique Blog, along with a link for the Vintage calendar.

Thanks for popping past today, see you soon..........
