I am putting two very much loved stamps sets together in this card, Stampin' Up! Petite Pairs and Everything Eleanor. Petite Pairs is selling for 25% off the regular price this month, so go ahead and get the wood-mount set! Be sure to check out the rest of stamp sets in this sale during the GRAB YOUR GREETINGS promotion.
The wonderful distressed image in the Everything Eleanor stamp set looks great stamped in Soft Suede on Sahara Sand cardstock using the Rock n Roll technique. One extra step I added was stamping off to lighten the shade of Soft Suede. This piece was cut out by hand, while the coordinating piece in Summer Starfruit was die-cut using Apothecary Accents set of Framelits.
I didn't want to make the layers too deep. Anything over 1/4" thick is considered a parcel at the Post Office and requires more than $1.00 in postage. Therefore, I only popped up this one layer in Whisper White that I stamped with Petite Pairs. The folded ribbon was already creating a bit of a puffed up section.
