Frenchie


For this card I used my new stepper card die.  It is so much easier using this than measuring and cutting and folding.  Thanks to Gaynor from the La Pashe DT for giving me the info.  The image is a sweet little French girl from The Paper Shelter which I have coloured with Promarkers.   I printed an outline of the Eiffel Tower onto a French dictionary page for the background.  I then added some red and blue card which I embossed, part of a bunting die cut from Joanna Sheen's Signature range and roses to finish it off.


I am entering the following challenges:

"Travel the World" at The Paper Shelter
"Patriotic Colours" at Open Minded Crafting Fun
"Shaped Card" at Digi Stamps 4 Joy
"Anything Goes" at Crafting from The Heart
"The Bold and the Beautiful" at Craft Your Passion Challenges

  2. I didn't know there was such a thing as a stepper card die! You've coloured that image in beautifully and I love all the elements you've used to give it the French look.

  5. OH wow, or should I say Oh La La. I love this card, such a lovely image, the backing is great with the dictonary page (I think I have a french dictonary thats aged around the edges already) and the Eiffel Tower on it.
