Carte Postale – Summer Mini Catalogue

I have to say that I’ve totally fallen in love with this set.  I admired it from afar in the US catty and was over the moon when it turned up in the our Summer Mini Catalogue.  It’s a very versatile set and with 11 stamps for $49.95 it’s a bargain.

I decided to use it for this month’s Technique Class along with some inspiration from the very talented Michelle Zindorf.  The girls did some Emboss Resist with the flourish and the swallow (a personal favourite) on Whisper White cardstock and then brayered over the top with Sage Shadow ink.  The A la carte leaves were stamped around the edge using Not Quite Navy ink.  Add some ribbon and bling, mount it again on Whisper White and then on to your black card.  Stamp just the tip of the flourish around all four sides of the card and highlight with the Signio white gel pen and  voila……..

I liked the result so much we went on a made a calendar bookmark to match.
