Baja and Parisian breeze

Have you seen this gorgous card on page 71 of the Stampin' Up idea book and Catalogue?
Here is my version of it. I have used baja breeze textured cardstock and the specialty paper Parisian breeze for the tactile effect. It is layered on a piece of whisper white that is scalloped at the bottom and put on dimensionals. I have used different stampsets and colours but the layout is almost exactly the same. I love using the tafetta ribbons chocolate chip and whisper white (I added that behind the flowers). The best bit is how you can turn the corner of the double sided paper with a brad and display the other side. I really like these papers.
I have used the medallion from the friends 24/7 stampset that just peaks out from underneath. I might have used more of it but didn't want to distract from the patterned paper.
Instead of the pocket silhouette flower I have used two stamps of the bella bloom flower in baja breeze and chocolate chip. They seem to match the papers.

  1. Hi Nerida,

    I love your card even more than the catalogue sample because I just love the colour combo of blue and brown tones. I also loved the blog candy you sent me and was very pleased to see how you made it. Your postings on using White Stazon were just brilliant - so inspirational.

    Kindest regards,

  2. Thank you Robyn, I am glad you liked the tutorial and the gift pack I sent you. The Parisian breeze paper is just divine to work with. Hope you liked the sample and make a card like this yourself.
