Basic Stripes and started to stamp the red and blue interchangeably.
Once I had the entire background stamped, I took out joyeux noel die and made a die cut. I then made another die cut with DCWV Foil paper and placed the die back into my stamped stripes. This Inlaid Diecut is rather easy to do even though the word die is intricate.
So, what to do with the word die from my first card? I made a 2nd card with it!
The Paris stamp I used is an older one from Stampendous. Unfortunately, SSS no longer carries it. However, I found a similar stamp (also from Stampendous) in my supply link list. I love the Platinum embossing Powder from Hero Arts and the embossed Eiffel Tower image is subtle and rich. I used just the word "noel" in this. The red and blue strings I used are from the Clearance Bin from my local Michael's.
The last time my family and I were in Paris was 2008. It was one of the best trips ever since it was also my kids' first visit to Paris.
Meanwhile, let's pray for world peace.
