This card was inspired by a Falliday Fest challenge and I used the MFT Sketch #303 for my design. So, the FF challenge was to use a napkin to create a background piece for a card. I don't really use decorative napkins, so the first thing that popped into my head was the birthday gift I received from my friend when I visited London last month. She had gotten me some cute stuff from Cath Kidston (an English designer that comes up with the coolest stuff!), including some tissues with beefeaters and guards on them. I thought they would make a really cool card, and I knew exactly which stamp I could pair it with!
I kept the card design simple since the London stamp and the napkin were already doing most of the work for me. I was looking through my stamps trying to find a sentiment and I finally had the Hello song from Adele pop into my head and remembered I did have a "hello" stamp in the Four You stamp set! Which the perfect fun and bold font to match my design. Score! I embossed it in black on Poppy Parade to make it stand out, and glued a tiny strip of Gold Foil paper on it to mimick the guards' uniforms. Then, two black enamel shapes were added to the edge of it.
Looking at the details on the stamped image are making me reminisce about my trip to London!
