I love the look of my Parisian Beauty Birthday Card. I had such a fun time putting all the parts together to form a beautiful but elegant card.
Repetition stamping can sometimes be quite tricky. However, the Parisian Beauty sentiment easily lines up; don’t be afraid to try it. Did you notice the beautiful embossed background? I used the Country Floral 3D embossing folder. One of my very favorites!
I find it helps to repeat a color three times on my cards. In particular, the gold-edged ribbon, the gold on the Golden Honey DSP, and the gold embossed Eiffel tower. Consequently, the color repetition helps your eye travel across the card and adds continuity to the design.
Did you notice the fleur-de-lis stamped in Blushing Bride? It adds just that touch of color to tie everything together. I love my simple, elegant card. Hopefully, you are inspired to stamp your own Parisian Beauty Birthday card.
I’ve always wanted to travel to Paris. Visit the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, walk down the Champs-Elysées, and as might be expected, eat french pastries. Well, a girl can dream. However, my Parisian Beauty Amour card does put me in mind of all things french.
You can add visual interest on the inside of your card by tapping off the ink before stamping your cardstock. This technique not only makes your card interesting, but it also adds a subtle reminder of your main focal image. Why not make your own Parisian Beauty Amour card?

I am so pleased that Stampin’ Up! decided to add theDaisy Lane stamp set with the smaller daisy and the beautiful fern. They made it so simple to create this beautiful Daisy Lane Friendship Card. It is also wonderful to have both the large and medium daisy punches.
You can find the bundle on page 23 of the new 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up! annual catalog. If you would like to purchase the products used to create this card or anything else you might want or “need” click HERE or on the links below this post.
I have always loved having a fern stamp and think this one is particularly beautiful and it fills the background with just the right touch to showcase the daisies.
I thought the “white space” was just a bit much. So, I toned it down with the spatter stamp from the Waterfront stamp set. I wanted a very light touch to the “splatter,” so the stamp was tapped off twice before stamping. Love the results! The Clear Faceted Gems filled the centers of the daisies adding that all-important touch of glam and of course, the petals are colored with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

How can you not love these adorable birds from the Free as a Bird stamp set from Stampin’ Up!? The new Stitched Nested Labels die I used on the Gorgeous Grape cardstock helps highlight the bird images. LOVE them!
You can find the Free as a Bird stamp set and Stitched Nested Labels Dies in the Stampin’ Up! 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. Check them out in My Online Store.
I colored the images with Watercolor Pencils and blended the colors with the Blender Pens. Watch my video below to learn this easy coloring technique. Using the Layered Leaves embossing folder evokes the image of birds in a tree. Now, if only the Clear Wink of Stella that I used would show in my photo.
Do you hate to fussy cut? I know many of my friends do. So, I’ve created an alternate card for you.
I hope you will give this colorful friendship card a try. I had a great time creating it, and I know you will too!
