My favorite color combo from the new catalog has to be Melon Mambo, Whisper White, and Basic Black. I guess that's not real surprising….look at my blog colors!
And my first stamp purchases from the new catalog were the French Filigree and Chic Boutique stamp sets. So, I combined my favorite colors with my favorite stamps to create this WOW card.
Stamp Sets: Chic Boutique, French Filigree
Ink: Basic Black classic ink
Paper: Whisper White card stock, Basic Black card stock, Melon Mambo card stock
Accessories: Melon Mambo polka dot ribbon, large oval punch, scallop oval punch, wide oval punch, crystal effects, micro beads, dimensionals
Now you can't really tell from the picture above, but what makes this a WOW card is the beaded Eiffel Tower. I covered the tower first with a thin layer of Crystal Effects, then poured on micro beads. This card has a lot of dimension and sparkle.
I only made 30 of these and I think I used half the container of micro beads. A little goes a long way!
