Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

November 13, 2013

Parisian Accents

Hi Everybody,

 This card looks much prettier in real life than the photo shows and it is created in white linen effect cardstock.

The card  is embossed with the A4 folder Picnic Plaid from Crafters Companion.  and it is fast becoming one of my favorites.

The beautiful satin ribbon is from  Mei Flower   and it ties in the softest of bows.

I cut the shape from Parisian Accents and the video will show you how I created the card.

The Ivory flowers are from  Wild Orchid Crafts  and I have added Glamour Dust to sparkle them up.

The pearls around the sentiment are from  Want2Scrap  and they are designed to mach the Fancy Tags Three.

Just peel them off the carrier sheet and stick them to your tag for a really luxurious look to your cards.

I hope you enjoy the video and thank you so much to all of you who have written to say how useful you are finding them and it encourages me to make more especially for the blog pages.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  2. Dear Christina, Just want to thank you as well for the videos. Your cards are still my favourite kind & I love the way you (and your film crew!) do the videos. I know you haven't heard from me in a while, but I homeschool & we're busy with Cambridge AS level exams (really keeping me busy!) Looking at you card for the day is my escape for the day ;) Thank you for all that you share! Blessings xx

  3. Hi Christina,
    Beautiful card, love it. Thanks for the detailed video. I must look at my dies to see if I can achieve a similar effect.

  4. Hi Christina. Such a lovely card. I did enjoy the video. I do not have this die, so am checking out the dies I have. Hugs. Jan.xx

  5. Hi Christina,
    Your cards are always so stunning and your videos so easy to follow and always inspiring. I have tried to request your Card Making Sketches booklet through your website and have not been sent the link can you please please help.
    Keep up your amazing work

  6. Your cards are always beautiful and this one is no exception!!!

  7. I love this card, and now I know how to use my Parisian Accent medallion! I really enjoy the videos, and they have greatly expanded my use of my Spellbinders and Spectrum Noir pens. I used the Parisian border and tag several times, but never thought to make a lattice panel by hooking them together. Thank you so very much.

  8. Hi Christina,
    Love the card, lucky enough to have these dies so will be trying out my version of this.
    I am one of your regular video fans, checking every day to see if you have a new one, your videos got me started with spellbinders and although my bank balance has suffered, my cards with your inspiration just get better and better.
    Best wishes to you and your camera crew

  12. 'What a beautiful card Christina, I have all the dies to try to do something similar or the same, maybe this is just what I need to give me back my mojo which has still not returned. :-( Thank you for the inspiration. Hugs, Jen x
