some of my very most favorite card making ingredients are: pixie dust kits, bright pink embellishments, and images of the eiffel tower. so how excited am i that the december kit, CHRISTMAS IN PARIS combines all three?!
this card doesn't happen to have a holiday theme, although it could do, quite easily, with the addition of a few holly leaves and a "joyeux noel"! but at the moment i really need a feminine birthday card, so i left those off, and concentrated on the combination of gorgeous crate paper background, a glitz designs diecut rose, and a tim holtz metal "adornment", topped off with the frothy gathered cerise ribbon from the kit.
the eiffel tower was trimmed from GCD's "d'orsay" paper, i've circled the bit i used to show you how the collaged nature of this pattern meant that the lower bit of the "postcard" image was covered by other things:
at first glance you might think, "well i can't use THAT as a focal point, then!" but in fact a little neat trimming and the clever placement of embellishments at the bottom edge of the image counter that argument really well, don't you think?
my very favorite part of this, however, is the gorgeous white script on clear acrylic that i've used as a sort of mat for the postcard. is it yet another beautiful accent piece pixie-in-chief kirsty vittetoe has chosen for us? well, no, actually it's a bit of the translucent *PACKAGING* from the prima blossoms in the kit!!! an awesome bonus, am i right?! :)
Kirsty's Note -
How perfect can this be? A beautiful Paris card from "Christmas in Paris" kit
