Stampin' Up's Beau Chateau Designer Series Paper (122357 $10.95) is simply beautiful! Full of old fashioned prints and using the colors Pink Pirouette, Marina Mist, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla, you are sure to find many uses for this paper.
Above, I created a special card for a special birthday. Using the coordinating Beau Chateau "Side Notes" set of die-cut tags (122379 $5.95) - 24 notes on heavy-weave paper, I put this card together in a snap! Pressed for time? You won't need much when your card elements are already "stamped", punched out for you and ready to use. If you wish, you can distress the edges or use your sponge daubers to ink them, but here I've left it just as it came out of the package on the "Mon Amour" tag. Isn't it so elegant? Wouldn't these look lovely on a scrapbook page?
My card base is Pink Pirouette card stock that mattes the lovely pink print from the Beau Chateau Designer Series Paper. I used a Sponge Dauber and Soft Suede ink to give a little color to all of the edges of the print.
I popped the tag up with Stampin' Dimensionals over my Basic Black
1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain ribbon. I gathered the ribbon at the bottom by tying a bow in Crumb Cake Seam Binding ribbon and then attached the Trinket Crown (121891 set of three $6.95) using a piece of Linen Thread (104199 $4.50). The striped ribbon was snipped in a fish tail shape at the bottom.
I hope you enjoyed this card. Please leave your comments below, I LOVE to read them all.
