Tri-Colored Fleur-de-Lis Card

How do you congratulate a Depeche Mode fan BFF for winning a fun DM guessing game?  You send her a gift wrapped in tissue paper stamped with Depeche Mode motifs and make her a Depeche Mode card!  In an older blog post I showcased some of my many Depeche Mode themed cards where I showed my upside-down fleur-de-lis card inspired by the DM single “It’s No Good” with a similar motif.  Since then, I often use the upside down fleur-de-lis pattern in my cards for DM fans, but I think anyone would appreciate the beauty of that familiar shape.

I used my Cuttlebug machine with an embossing folder to get the fun, textured background and then stamped a fleur-de-lis on the top of the card in sparkly champagne colored clear ink.  I covered the seam of the red and black papers with ribbon and embossed four squares with my Cuttlebug and a Nestbilities Spellbinders die.  Then, I used a Martha Stewart punch for the sparkly red paper and added black and white gel stickers in the squares!

I love to add dimension to my cards with double-sided sticky foam.
