Artistic Etchings meets Beau Chateau

How do I explain this card?  Well if you want to goof around with lots of different things – this one’s for you!

I used the Lattice Die to make a monochromatic design on the right by simply adhering the pieces to the card.  The main image was stamped in different colors and then embossed with the Designer Frames rectangle and cut out.  Then I added a few details –

Tie the seam binding in a bow and then carefully pull a thread from each side to create the ruffle.  When I got the gathering to look like I wanted, I added a drop of Crystal Effects on the end to keep it from unraveling.

Stamp Set – Artistic Etchings
card stock – Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Pink Pirouette, Beau Chateau DSP
Ink – Soft Suede, Marina Mist, Pink Pirouette, Early Espresso
Etc – Vanilla seam binding, pearls, Designer Frames embossing folder, Big Shot Lattice die, Scallop edge punch, spritzer

It certainly became of playground for “stuff!”  Enjoy!  Hugs, Fran
