Purple Tea

This card is created for Joan's touch Challenge #10--where we are to distress edges, something from nature, and use purple and white for our cards.  My card is created with white cardstock burnished with  purple ink, a white matte layer embossed with E-Bosser's Dotted Edges folder, then a layer of purple shimmer cardstock (Ranger-Tim Holtz), and then white cardstock, stamped with Graphics 45's Cling Stamps that accompany the Botanical Tea paper packs, (#1088797)  The stamp is the Citronier stamp with lemons and oranges on an old fashioned invoice tag.  I left this duo-one rather than coloring the stamp.  All the mattes are sewing machine (triple)  stitched in Madera rayon thread, (purple or white) on cardstock with distressed edges, distressed with the Tim Holtz distressing tool.  The E-bosser, and E-bosser's folder, and Graphics 45 products and shimmer papers are available at Joan's Gardens. The Hello Friend stamp is from the same stampset and will be adhered to the inside of the card.


  1. Priss, your card is lovely. It takes extra work to do that stitching, and it really makes the card special. :o)
    Blessings, Ginny B

  2. Priss, this is beautiful. I love how you did the flower and the stitching. Isn't it amazing how much the stitching adds to the interest of the card. Great job!
    Thanks for joining us at Joan's Touch for this weekly challenge.
