Today I did some stamping with the Technique Challenge at Stampin' Addicts and my two favorite floral stamp sets from Stampin' Up! - Just Believe and Fifth Ave Floral. The Technique Challenge at Stampin' Addicts has a Fun Fold card on the fourth Tuesday of each month - this month's challenge was to create a Criss Cross Card.
For directions on the Criss Cross card, go ahead and visit the SA Criss Cross Card Technique Challenge. Here's the pull-out card for the inside of my Criss Cross card - I stamped the flower image from Fifth Ave Floral in Basic Gray ink across the lower corner of the Very Vanilla layer. I sandwiched a tab of Basic Gray Satin Ribbon with Sticky Strip tape between the Very Vanilla liner and the Soft Suede mat.
I used a color combination from a beautiful package of Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! called Elegant Soiree - so gorgeous. I used a piece of the Elegant Soiree DSP to line my Very Vanilla Envelope, too - love that touch! I'll have another trick to dressing up your envelopes later this week, too.
