A big part of why I liked it was the beautiful designer paper that was showcased. This led me to thinking about what other paper I could use for the same reason, and I remembered this gorgeous 12" paper from Prima's Romantique collection that I found at Hobby Lobby earlier this year. It is a vintage floral, with a subtle overprinting of text. I don't normally buy papers this big anymore since the 6" pads were born - the scale is usually not right for cards, but I made an exception and bought it anyway - so glad I did! Here's my new card:
supplies: eggshell cardstock (thanks, Joy!) and rust to frame, Prima Romantique Collection "Estella" dp, Lifestyle Crafts Vine embossing folder, Technique Tuesday This is the Day by Ali Edwards sentiment, Art Print Brown ink, K&Company Grand Adhesions butterflies 'Susan Winget Nature Insect"
Just to change things up a bit I embossed the printed panel instead of the card base this time:
I love the added texture it gives - kind of like brush-strokes on a canvas........
