LAURIE SCHMIDLIN CASE

This card is a COMPLETE CASE of Laurie Schmidlin's card, (Just Give Me Stamps). I needed a fast "knock your socks off card" and KNEW I could find it on Laurie's blog! Last week, my brother-in-law, Rick asked me to make an anniversary card for him to give to his wife, Norene. I was honored that Rick asked me to do that, and knew it HAD to be special, as they celebrated 40 years of marriage last weekend! Norene is a stamper too, and I wanted to use a stamp set and supplies that I knew she owned. This card is so elegant, yet very easy to duplicate! The only change I made from Laurie's card was the "happy anniversary" sentiment. The sentiment and the medallion are both emossed with Black Embossing Powder.

What a nice, no beautiful card. Everytime I see a project done with this stamp set I love it more. You can make a simple card using Baroque Motif and it looks elegant and very difficult.
Thank you for taking the time to share your work.
