I’m lucky enough to have been to Europe several times and I can just visualize street scenes like those in the Mediterranean Moments stamp set. My daughter studied in Lyon, France for a year and some of these street scenes will work there for sure. I have family in Switzerland as well and I can definitely see the chairs and table in one of the small villages along Lac Leman.
I created a little problem for myself with this card, knowing how I wanted it to look but not quite knowing how to get it there. This is my final card:
I wanted some dimension to the card but really sort of started it backwards. I cut an oval out from the card front and then placed the stamped image behind it. So much for that “dimensionalized” layer I thought I would have. I was going to cut a small oval ring to place around oval cut out but it just didn’t look like what I wanted……..so I layered the Cajun Craze piece of card stock, from which I’d cut the oval, over the image and card front layer.
I used the Layering Ovals Framelits to work on the oval piece I thought I wanted to use.
The addition of the little knotted piece of ribbon created the balance that finally made me as happy as I was going to be.
