I was anxious to try out my new Art Nouveau cartridge.  I picked out this Iris to make a card for my cousin.

I cut the Iris and all it's layers at 4 inches from page 28. 
Then I cut the background that is the Font 2 Layer on page 60 at 4.5 inches in Shimmer Gold from PaperTrey Ink.  The shape seemed to mimic the Iris.
Then I cut it again at 5 inches in a green patterned paper from my stash. 
I wanted another layer to place on my purple 5.5 x 5.5 inch card base.  I couldn't find quite what I wanted so I heat embossed some gold stripes with a Stampin' Up stamp called Solid Stripes and Recollections Clear Gold Sparkling Embossing powder. I cut it at 5.25 x 5.25 inches and added it to my base card.
I ran a purple ribbon between the embossed layer and the green layer and tied a bow.   I added both the Green and Shimmer Gold layers with foam tape to pop them up a little bit. 

The more I look at it, the more it grows on me!

Thanks for coming by and y'all come back again soon,

Cindy :)


  1. This card is beautiful Cindy. Can't believe you embossed the background with lines. So terrific looking.--Pat N,
