An elegant card of pure Bliss

Carrying on with a little inspiration for using the fabulous, free, Sale-a-bration sets, today I'm using just two of the five Bliss stamps.

This is a really simple but elegant card, suitable for a wedding or anniversary.

Stamp set: Bliss (get this set of 5 stamps with a £45 order - details here)
Cardstock: Perfect Plum, Very Vanilla
Ink: Perfect Plum
DSP: Lap of Luxury
Punches: Scallop Trim Corner, Scallop Trim, Scallop Oval, Large Oval
3mm Taffeta Ribbon: Very Vanilla
Other: Basic Pearls

The card blank is a 5" square of Perfect Plum, matted with Lap of Luxury DSP. The large damask motif was stamped with Perfect Plum ink onto Very Vanilla card and the top corners punched with the Scallop Trim Corner. This was adhered direct to the DSP layer. A narrow strip of Perfect Plum card was punched with the Scallop Trim and wrapped with 3mm Very Vanilla card before adhering over the join between DSP and card. The Bliss sentiment was stamped with Perfect Plum ink onto Very Vanilla card and punched with the Large Oval then popped up on dimensionals onto a Scallop Circle of Perfect Plum card. This was then popped up again on dimensionals on the bottom centre of the card. It was finished by adding a few Basic Pearls and a Very Vanilla taffeta bow.

Thanks for stopping by.
