Elegant Damask

I used the the Papertrey ink Damask Stamp set and stamped the elegant large Damask image onto the white card base and added a pearl to the centre.
I also used one of the papers from PTI and using the EK success border punch made a fancy edge and glued it on the bottom part of the card using the punched out shapes from the paper I glue them opposite the border to make a negative pattern then glued one of the shapes onto both top corners.
The card was finished by tying a ribbon just above the border.


Because sometimes the inside of the card is as important as the front of the card this is how I finished this one, I used the EK success border punch on a black paper liner then again on the white printed insert.

It is simply elegant! I love black and white and really love the way you finished the inside of the card! Most of the time I'm too lazy to get to the inside after I've finished the front (lol)

Stunning! What a great idea to double line and the punched border is just a brilliant touch.
