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.

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
