My Project: 

I used Authentique Paper’s Unity Stamp set called:

You + Me = Bliss

Here is my card.

I used some of the newly released Free Bird Series  papers called: BLUSH

Maker sure that you check out my tutorial on the secret of Authentique Paper here:

https://polkacabana.wordpress.com/2011/09/25/authentique-paper-secret-qualities/

Authentique Paper products are double-sided.  I love to utilize both sides and my tutorial will show you how I do it.

For this card, I used 1-ply of the Blush paper and stamped the floral background. I used my sewing machine to attach the paper to the card front.

My next step was that I attached my ribbon and made my slide mount focal point.

I love incorporating Authentique Paper’s logo in to my projects.  It is such a beautiful logo.  I think it always looks lovely when I make it part of my card.

When I got the slide mount just how I wanted it, I attached it to the card front.

This stamp set is just gorgeous.  I had a wonderful time using this set and highly recommend it.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Your next stop will be:
