Classy and Fabulous (Rachelle Green)

Classy and Fabulous
by Rachelle Green

Good morning all! It was the third of April while I was making this card, and here in Michigan we were having a mix of sleet and snow. Will it ever stop? It seemed almost as if Spring will never happen. Just like the almost didn't happen. I had a wonderful project in mind but when I sat down to make it, I couldn't find my journal with the specifics of what I wanted to do. I knew I wanted to use this image and already had it colored. I spent so much time looking for the journal that I finally gave up and "let the chips fall where they may."  I wanted the card to be as elegant as the image, after all what is more elegant than a "Strutting Lady?"

Once I chose the BoBunny paper and Coved Labels, everything started to fall into place. I used Tim Holtz Distress ink on the edges of the label to give it a vintage look. Not wanting total symmetry, I placed the label and the image slight off-center. I added the flowers and bling because a Strutting Lady deserves them. Finally I added the small bird accenting hime with a small piece of bling for the eye and inked the edges for a subtle yet delicate look.

I can't say enough about Frantic Stamper dies. They are absolutely the best dies I've ever used and I'm not saying that just because I'm on the design team...I'm say it because it's true. I've never had a miss-cut nor do I have to add additional shims or run it through my die cutter numerous time. They work the first time and every time. Look at the tiny bird. Notice the beak? It's perfect. If you haven't tried Frantic Stamper dies you are missing out.
