Card Ideas for Paper Crafters

Happy Friday, friends! I'm so excited for the weekend and I've only had to work 3 days this week because of our vacation! I hope you all have something fun to do to celebrate the last bits of summer.

Today I'm happy to share a card that is published in the newest Paper Crafts Magazine special edition - Card Ideas for Paper Crafters. This is such a great publication - so many sketches to get you out of any crafty ruts you may be in!

I made this card many months ago when the Le Cirque line from Graphic 45 had just come out and I was (and still am) just in love with it! There's something about those deep, rich colors and the beautiful circus images that really captured my imagination. I stamped three tickets with the circus ticket stamp from Stampin' D'Amour, distressed them with ink and a distressing tool, and tied them to the card with some shabby ribbon.

I hope you have a wonderful day! Thanks for visiting!

Supplies: Stamps - Circus Ticket (SDA), DP - Le Cirque Collection (G45), Ink - Basic Black (SU!), Tea Dye Duo (PTI), Glitter Star (MemrieMare), Card Stock - Real Red (SU!), Select White (PTI)
