Life is Beautiful



I inked up the En Francais background stamp with Very Vanilla craft ink and stamped onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock. After heat embossing the background with Clear Embossing Powder, I adhered it onto the Peach Parfait textured cardstock along with an Eyelet Border punched strip of Greenhouse Gala DSP. The sentiment from Style Beautiful was inked up with Early Espresso and stamped in the bottom corner. Then, some Very Vanilla Satin ribbon was tied around the entire card front and finished off with a pretty bow.





Stamps: En Francais, Style Beautiful
Paper: Peach Parfait textured, Early Espresso CS, Greenhouse Gala DSP
Ink: Very Vanilla Craft, Early Espresso
Other: Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon, Eyelet Border Punch
