Design Team Project #2 featuring Prima Almanac Collection (by Lesley)

Hello Again Everyone,

Today I'm sharing my second project using this beautiful Almanac collection of papers, embellishments and stamps by Prima.  They really are stunning products and it's well worth leaving a comment HERE to be entered into the Snazzy draw at the end of the month and be in with a chance of winning a set of stamps and a pack of the embellishments.

As you can see my project today is a card for which I cut a section from one of the papers to cover the front of my 21 x 21 cm base card.  I distressed the edges with my TH distressing tool and blended some Vintage Photo Distress Ink around the edges and then added some white highlights using a white pen before adhering to the base card.  I cut another section from one of the paper designs and used a circle punch to cut out the corners before again distressing and inking.  I adhered this to the top right of my card and then added two of the beautiful Prima tiles.

The sentiment comes from a lovely set of Kaisercraft clear stamps which I bought from Snazzys stand at the HSNW show last October (looking forward to going to see them there again in May, Yay!).  It fitted perfectly inside the pretty label stamp from the Almanac collection so I stamped them both onto a scrap from one of the papers before cutting it out with a Nestie label die. 

I ruffled the ribbon across the card onto strong double sided tape leaving it flat where I wanted to place the sentiment and that was my card completed.

I hope to post a final little project before my week's blog posting is over and hope you get chance to check back.
