Inspired by Arbonne!

Here's a card I made just for fun today (finally!). I was inspired by the Arbonne holiday catalogue, believe it or not! Their catalogue is so beautiful - it has a vellum cover over the front with a design very similar to Baroque Motifs, so how could I resist? Here's the cover:

So for my card, I stamped the Baroque flourish onto vellum paper with VersaMark, then embossed it with gold embossing powder. I cut some Very Vanilla cardstock to the same size and stamped some of the other Baroque stamps on that in Close to Cocoa and Bravo Burgundy. I then layered them and attached the two pieces together with some gold eyelets.

For the card base, I used Close to Cocoa and stamped the French Flair background stamp on it in the same colour of ink. I then attached the vellum piece to it with dimensionals.

Looking at the catalogue cover again, I have another idea for a card. Hopefully I'll get a chance to do more stamping before I forget!
