Lovely Ophelia in Kraft Cardstock with The Stampsmith

Hi Dreamers!
Oh, boy!  My air conditioner died on Wednesday.  Spent the whole day waiting for the repairman yesterday only to find out that a new system was required.  Installers are supposed to come later today.  Trying hard to stay cool.  Fortunately, it is not too hot, but very high humidity.  I should have air by tonight!!  Well, enough about the weather and these housekeeping things!

Let's look at a card.  Today, I have a project made with the Medium Ophelia stamp by The Stampsmith.  I used Kraft CS and Kraft decorative papers for my backdrop.

  • The image was stamped with black dye ink on smooth white CS and cut with a die.  

  • Three different DP's were used for the background--the Kraft are from Basic Grey, the blue from 7 Gypsies.  
  • The Kraft CS is from The Paper Company.

  • A brown ribbon was tied in a bow and tiny ecru pearls were added for embellishments
  • Repeat the papers on the inside

I did not add a sentiment yet.  I will add one when the card is sent.  That way I have a nice selection of blank cards already when I need one in a hurry.  I store them in decorative boxes.  

And, how about a few fun Challenges for the lovely Ophelia!
