Eiffel Tower Day

Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. As the challenge hostess for the month I finish off the month with one last challenge. 

According to the Days of the Year web site today is Eiffel Tower Day. So for our challenge this week let's celebrate all things Parisian …. It could be the Eiffel Tower, French Poodle; Berets; Champagne; Red, White & Blue Color Combo etc.

Of course I just had to grab my Eiffel Tower Pop Stand Card die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs to create my card this week.

To create the Eiffel Towers, I die cut them using Silver Shimmer Sheetz and then used alcohol inks to dab on the color I wanted my Eiffel Towers to be. 

I added the Paris Edges decorative die to both edges of my card and then stamped the little French girl wearing a beret which I also added to each end.

I used the speech bubble from the Rectangle Accordion Card die set for the sentiment which is from the Just a Note Clear Stamp set.

Here is a look at my card from above so you can see the whole of the inside of the card.

For the front of my card I used the Paris Skyline die from MFT Stamps, my friend used this on a card she made me for my birthday which reminded me I had it and of course I wanted to play with it.

I also used the A Way with Words Merci which was die cut with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape on the front of the word and then added Orange Silk Microfine Glitter over the adhesive.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:
