Thank You “Merci” Card {Chic Boutique} in Pinks

When I saw this stamp, I knew I would love it. Every time I use it, I just love it more and more. Especially that filigree stamp, and the birdcage, and the dress form, and of course the Eiffel Tower.

The card base is Rose red, layered with Basic Black and Raspberry Tart DSP. I stamped the Eiffel Tower in Basic Black on Whisper White and colored it with a light wash of Pretty in Pink ink and my Aquapainter.  Around the edges of the White layer, I stamped the filigree stamp from Chic Boutique in Pretty in Pink. The White is layered on Basic Black, which I trimmed along the bottom with the Scallop Trim Border Punch.

I tied some Black Satin Ribbon around the top two layers and before tying my knot, added my “merci” tag. The tag was made by stamping merci in Rose Red ink, then stamping the filigree in Pretty in Pink above and below the sentiment on Whisper White. Next, I punched the white out with the 1″ Circle Punch and layered it onto a 1 1/8″ Circle of Rose Red. Then, I punched a hole at the top with the Cropadile and threaded some Silver Cord through. I knotted the cord and then slipped the Black Satin Ribbon through the loop. To keep the tag flat, I opted to add a Stampin Dimensional behind it, but you could also leave it hanging.
