Card with globe and Eiffel-tower

One of my friends has seen the text, " together is the best place to be" on my robot card. And I was asked to make a card with the same text for her husband for their wedding anniversary. So after a lot of consultations with my friend I made this card.

For the edge of the second layer and for the globe, I used Liquid Platinum embossing powder from Ranger.

The Eiffel tower was heat embossed with Ranger Vintage Photo (Rust Effect) embossing powder. I repeated the process, so in the end, there are two layers of embossing powder on the Eiffel tower.

Behind the globe, I put a kraft paper which was inked first with Hickory Smoke, then with Black Soot.

I glued the globe on this inked kraft paper then I cut off the excess.

The background paper of the first layer and the little vintage New York picture were in the Graphic 45 Cityscape 8x8" paper pad.

The hearts were cut out from watercolour paper with the Sizzix Bigz Heartfelt die and I added diluted acrylic paints to the surface then spritzed with more water. When it was dry I smeared Antique Linen ink onto the surface. 

I inked the edges of the hearts, the text and the New York picture with Vintage Photo and Frayed Burlap.

What else? Oh yes, I smeared a little Titan Buff DecoArt Media paint to the edges of the Graphic 45 paper.

The first layer and the second layer were mounted on a blue card base, then I attached all the other elements, one by one. 

I hope you like it!!! Thank you for stopping by!!!
