a lush damask

Sometimes you just don’t want to cover up designer paper.  This is the case with this card.

The damask designer paper is from My Minds Eye and it is a gorgeous deep red flocked paper.  When I saw it at my LSS it was a no brainer – I put several sheets of it, along with the coordinating ribbon and some other papers in the same line in my basket.

I started with a creme card and just cut a square of the flocked damask paper and added a ribbon. 

 For the tag I cut out one of the damask designs and attached it to a strip of creme cardstock and stamped the sentiment (from Fiskars) in Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink. 

This paper is so elegant that I can see it being used for a wedding card, christmas, a mother’s day or birthday card.   

Orvil and I will be on the road for the next week or so, so my posts will be limited.  If I get the chance I’ll post some photos of our travels.

Thanks for stopping by today!
