I got this Venice and shoe stamp in the discount bin at VLV in the fall. The gorgeous paper is from Italy, brought back from a friend, and finally starting to cut it up. I had no idea what to do with the Venice stamp, but wanted to use it for my V alpha challenge. Once I chose the paper, it started coming together and I am pretty happy with the results. I embossed the shoe on poppy parade and fussy cut it. I first diecut the hello in champagne shimmer, sponged some oxide on it and finally decided to smash some delicata gold on it and let it dry. I glued another diecut behind it before adhering it. Sponged edges with oxide and gold delicata. Panel is popped up with dimensionals.

Ooh la la, is this ever gorgeous Shirl. This dsp is incredible! How neat that a friend brought this back from Italy for you. I applaud you for cutting into this dsp because it truly showcases your gorgeous image panel with fancy red matting. The shoe is such a great touch for the title of this card Shirl. Everything about your card is chosen with such care and makes for a very elegant and classy card. ~Karen.

What a gorgeous card youâ€™ve created, and I love that paper.
Just because it was HANDMADE does not mean it was CHEAP, because why send a store-bought card that cost $4.95 when you can make it yourself for $89 worth of supplies?
