Triple Treat Striped ribbon combo

 Today’s post is the second card featuring the Triple Treat flower A la carte stamp #122909 in Cammie’s card cafe.  This card was not as popular among her cafe guest as her other two Triple treat cards but was my personal favorite.  For me it was the simple design and the Daffodil Delight 1- 1/4 ” striped ribbon that tickeled my fancy and I knew could be used for almost any occasion.  The background is textured using the manhattan flower #114517 embossing folder to create a beautiful and clean looking card.

Manhattan Wedding

In anticipation of my first trip to Manhattan, I am posting my CASE of a card I received at convention.  I love this wedding card and the creative use of the Manahattan embossing folder.  If you look closely the dress shape ‘pops ” out of the embossed design.  I embossed the Manhattan Flower #114517 folder 2 times, once on vellum and then on Whisper White cardstock. I cut the dress shape out and then layered the vellum on top and tied with the 5/8″ organza ribbon #114319.  The Happy I do day from the Wordplay stamp set #120651 finishes this elegant card complete with rhinestone bling.
