Stamped Elegant Lady Card

Hi Bloggers,
Today I’d like to show you a card I made using the gorgeous “Elizabeth Bennet” stamp by IndigoBlu.
I started off by randomly stamping Honeycomb and Crackleglaze background onto the base card (6” square). Then I added Fran-tage glitter glass in black to the edges. This glitter glass is STUNNING!! The glitter chunks are quite large and add so much texture.
Then I cut a 5.25” mat from white card, using the Cricut Elegant Edges cartridge (I also cut the matching shadow from black card). I stamped the “Elizabeth Bennet” image onto the centre of the white mat and coloured the flowers, butterfly, bird and leaves with Promarkers.
The tag is cut from white card using the Cricut Wrap It Up cartridge and stamped with a greeting from a Personal Impressions set. I added Fran-tage glitter glass around the edges.
The flower is from the Cricut Flower Shoppe cartridge and the branches are a Martha Stewart punch (I really must stop using these on all my projects!!).
I tried to take some of the photographs in sunlight in the hope that it would better show the effect of the glitter glass.
Thanks for stopping by.
