Paris Birthday

Waltzingmouse Stamps recently released a whole bunch of new sets and I may have been tempted into buying one or two!

My first project with them was this birthday card for somebody who spent time in Paris as a nanny in an earlier phase of her life! The graphic style of this Eiffel Tower stamp is great and there are so many elements in the set to mix and match. I used the Art Nouveau border stamp to create a little strip of patterned paper and trimmed round the bottom to shape it round the pattern.

I hand cut the label shape and its mat too - I don't own Spellbinder Labels 25 which is what it's designed to coordinate with but it's a pretty easy shape to hand cut.

Stamps:
Paris Nouveau and sentiment from Say it Loud (both Waltzingmouse Stamps)

Paper:
White and black

Ink:
Adirondack by Ranger (Pool and Stream)
Versafine by Tsukineko (Onyx Black)

Other:
Corner Chomper by We R Memory Keepers


Thanks for stopping by!

I love the way you've used the border stamp and cut around it to form the scalloped edge.
