Art Nouveau Card

Hiya Peeps,

For today's card, I tried to keep things simple and used an art nouveau theme to create a simple but luxury handmade card.

To make this card, I used

  1. 13x13cms square cream cardstock.

  2. The image stamp is from the Dover art nouveau cd's printed onto Letraset bleed proof paper and coloured in with Promarkers.

  3. Travel, Explore and Discover stamp from Crafty Individuals.

  4. Gold printed Vellum from Papermania Signature collection.

  5. Gold Mirri Board

To achieve a slightly faded vintage look, I tore a piece of paper and used it to cover 2/3rd of my card, after which I stamped my motifs using brown/copper ink pads.

I'm also loving the Dovecraft ready stick ribbons in their Christmas fancy and jolly happy Christmas collections.I've used the ribbon here from the Jolly Happy Christmas stick-on ribbon for a card that is far from christmassy.

I've entered this card in the following challenges:

Hope you like it!

Till next time,
