Have you ever loved a city so much, you would seriously move there in a heartbeat? If only it were that simple! PARIS! Paris is my city. It would probably devour me, I’m sure, but I would keep swimming. I know it may seem cliche (no pun intended), you know, because everyone “loves Paris in the springtime.”
In the third grade, we lived on a naval station in England. They taught us French at our school! I know, right? That is a tad bit young to start learning a different language. But if you think about it, it is INGENIOUS! Kids are sponges and retain information so much easier than an adult. Too bad I only had one year of French before we moved and the next time I took a class, I didn’t do so well.
The first time I visited Paris was three and a half years ago for our honeymoon. It was more than I could have ever imagined! Which made me fall in love with it even more.
It was a beautiful weekend, probably one of the hottest for sure! I was as crisp as a lobster. We sure hope to visit again in the future and peer a little deeper into France, get a look at all of the mom and pop stops.
So as I continue to long for the beautiful love country, I found a way to bring the beauty a little bit closer. For all my card maker friends, I have a generous collection of dies, papers, and stamps that will make your existing stash swoon.
Pictured above is not the whole collection, but pieces I used to create the card below. You can find the full collection here. Through the use of stamping inks, dies, vellum, and card stock, I was able to create this charming anniversary card. I felt that there was way too much purple going on in the card and the inside really needed to pop.
What do you think? I’d love to hear from you! If I’ve inspired you to purchase this collection, I would love to see what you come up with, as well! I cannot wait to create more cards from this collection.
