This is my second card using the Parisian Flourish embossing folder. I did one for a class in Mesquite, but I also wanted to do a version using the coordinating specialty designer series paper and the dies. Look at the metallic shine on that paper…makes me so happy!
Here’s a close up (I didn’t capture the shine on the close up…sorry about that).
I used the black dimensionals on the Eiffel Tower so they wouldn’t show white at an angle. It was easy to just snip off a skinny strip at the edge of the sheet for the feet and the lower solid bar across the tower…then just one mini black dimensional at the top of the tower.
Here’s the simpler one I did for the Mesquite class. I had several already embossed crumb cake layers, bases, and black mats left over, so why not make another design. I used this more involved design for my team get together earlier this month.
Colors: Pool Party, Petal Pink, Crumb Cake, Basic Black
P. S. I plan to mail a few of these Parisian Flourish Embossing Folder cards to friends today (I made quite a few of them!).
This Panel Pull-out technique is the perfect technique to show off all the ladybug images in the Sale-a-Bration hostess set, Little Ladybug. The set is free to hosts that have party sales of at least $300 during Sale-a-Bration (through March 31st). I’m so happy that all 3 of my club hostesses last month earned this set free. You can host a party or just place an order by yourself of $300 and add this set for free.
Here’s the card I designed for my clubs (closed and open). I used 3 of the 4 ladybug images (2 on the card and 1 on the technique sample).
Here is the sample and technique journal page we made. My club members get a new technique page in their journal almost every month.
And here’s a close up of the measurements.
I hope you try this technique out…it’s fairly easy. You can write little hidden messages on the accordion piece and also still have the regular size space to write inside your card.
Text me (214-395-5586) if you’re local to the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, and I can do a home party for you and your friends so you can earn this adorable stamp set before March 31st.
