Global Monthly Video Hop – Love. The Global Monthly Video Hop Team are back today to another hop, with the Theme of LOVE! Just a quick reminder about how the Video Hop element of today’s project works. All you need to do is click the video further down this post and open it in YouTube. In the description below the video you will find links to the others taking part in the hop. I am sure they will have some great projects for you to look at, all with ‘How To’ videos!
The obvious choice for this project would be to use the From the Heart Suite, which is one of the reasons I have decided not to! That and the fact that next week I have a whole series of Valentine’s Day projects. So, I am using the Parisian Blossoms Suite. I used this in yesterday evenings post too, I have certainly fallen for this suite, it is so elegant.
The project focuses on the Parisian Dies that are Bundled with the Parisian Beauty stamps (10% Saving remember!), which I have used on the inside of my card. I decided to keep the colour scheme in the, stunningly beautiful, Specialty Designer Series Paper. Petal Pink, Pool Party and Champagne are such a great combination. Having decided on the colours, as I already had the Heirloom Frame Die and Embossing folder set out, I chose to use the rectangle for today’s project. I wanted to use the paper as a mat, but also wanted a different pattern in the middle of the frame. I simply ‘gutted’ the paper to get the most out of one piece. The Petal Pink and Champagne pattern is perfect as the mat, while the Pool Party floral is just enough to sit in the frame without detracting from the rest of the card.
I had to use the Eiffel Tower die, it is just so stunning, so I cut it in Champagne Foil, cutting the swirl at the same time. The swirl fills the frame nicely. Because the swirl is to the left of the frame, adding the Eiffel Tower to the right balances it out well. It is mirrored inside with the Eiffel Tower stamped in Pool Party, partially off the side of the inside mat. Remembering that the Theme is ‘Love’, I stamped ‘Amour’ on the inside of the card, also in Pool Party.
The final touch was to add some of the Champagne Rhinestones, mostly to the swirl, but with one at the top of the Eiffel Tower. I know I shouldn’t say this, but I am really pleased with how it turned out. What do you think?
