Mardi Gras Card

Even with all the craziness of Christmas I still found the time to make a card......
Yes I know I am super woman!!LOL
Anyways....... I am in a swap that we have to make a set of cards each month next year. The theme for February is Mardi Gras. And let me tell you this is no easy task!

I had this great idea of using diamonds in the background.... but the stamp I had was way to small the mask covered it. So I start digging and I found this great gold foil tape. So I decided to "create" diamonds on the card. While it looks more like lattice to me it still has the effect I wanted. I am totally in love with this stamp!
Thanks for looking!

This is looking so nice. How much time was taken on designing this card?

Plastic card printing said...

The different designs takes different times. Designing through computer don't take much time but designing by hand takes much time. I am so inspire from this card.
