I am a huge Kraftin Kimmie fan. I came upon her stamps a couple of years ago when I saw a card made with her Clara stamp. That is my Mom's name, so I had to find out where to order it and when I did, I was hooked! I am most fond of the Moonlight Whispers line by Annie Rodrigue, there is just something about the whimsical nature of her stamps that I adore. They stamp like a dream and are just so much fun to create with. I wanted to keep the papers simple and have fun with the embellishments on this card, so I layered my papers over a 5.5 x 5.5 card. I pulled out my VersaMagic chalks, prayed they would still ink, because they haven't gotten much love since I discovered Distress Inks :-) and edged the cardstock layers. I love the Basic Grey Wisteria Paper I used. I wanted it to look like my Swan Princess was gliding through the wisteria. I used pop dots to adhere her to the card. I used my computer to generate the sentiment for the inside and front of the card, then I cut them with my Nestabilities Ovals. I embellished the card with my Basic Grey Opaline Pearls and the Primas. Added the stick pins for some interest, and a piece of ribbon to anchor the embellies and sentiment. I embossed a piece of purple cardstock and chalked it with the VersaMagic Purple Hydrangea. That completed my card. Here are a few more pictures.
She turned out very pretty, didn't she? I hope you enjoyed my card, I know I enjoyed creating her!
