Couple cards to share

I was visiting one of my LSS's the other day and they had these new destination stickers by Mrs. Grossman's. I could just see how cool they would be on a card and I picked the "Paris" one since I so want to go there someday.

I used one of my new border punched from Martha Stewart for part of my accent. (TIP)That was rubbed with a stamp pad, that helps bring out the embossing and the details after the punching. The patterned papers were brand new prints I found from Graphic 45.
The entire "Paris" piece and the little stamp looking stickers are from the set of destination stickers.
This card was created with some of my favorite supplies, October Afternoon prints and Thickers "Naked" letters. I love the shaped papers that are being sold lately and a fun use for them is to just use a portion on a card.
I added the Diamond Glitter 3-D Fashion paint to the thin turquoise border on the paper. I love this glitter paint because it adds glitter but still lets you see the color underneath. It is hard to tell from the photo, but I coated each of the tiny black letters with the Aleene's Paper Glaze by Tulip. That gave them a great epoxy look that adds alot of charm to the card.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
