Artiste Elegant Birthday card



Today I have a card that I made using the Artiste cartridge and a few stamp sets. This was seriously quick to put together, but doesn't look it. This would be a really great way to use your smaller scrap pieces.




For the swirly part, I used the black flourishes and then just cut them up and arranged them until I liked the design.
This is a stamp from a great set that you can get for $8 if you spend over $150. Email me if you are interested!

Gorgeous card - I'm wondering how you kept your hand so STEADY to put on the flourishes! That is a MAJOR talent right there! You don't give yourself the credit you deserve, but I think we all can SEE it. This would be a much needed cartridge to win. Thanks for sharing.
