Springtime in Paris

Ah, the allure of Paris. The crafting world has a French vibe now, seen in stamp sets, embellishments and more.

I have an Eiffel Tower shape on my Slice “Je t’Adore” design card, and I thought of springtime in Paris. I’ve never been, but I’ve heard that it’s nice!

This card is quick, simple and features Flower Soft, a fun product that adds dimension.

Here’s how to make it:

Make a card from a 5-by-10-inch piece of light-blue cardstock. Stamp a tree image (I used “Bare Oak” by Memory Box) in black ink (such as StazOn in jet black.)

Apply glue to the tree’s branches (I used Aleene’s Jewel-It).

Sprinkle Flower Soft (the color I used is called “sweet pea”) onto the glue and press it down. Shake off the excess Flower Soft.

Tie pink ribbon around the card and adhere a “merci” embellishment onto the ribbon (I used a Making Memories jelly label).

Using the Slice and the “Je t’Adore” design card, cut out a 3-inch Eiffel Tower in black textured cardstock.

Attach the cutout using dimensional adhesive. Voila!
