This fabulous card has been made using our cameo stamps, which never fail to please me when I plan a design with them. The frame is lovely and there are several heads to choose from.
There are corners that I just love – these are just so detailed and stamp out perfectly whether you choose to use a flat ink like Memento or something raised using a heat embossing technique. This example shows off the use of embossing folders and assorted dies really well. When a design works it reminds me how much scope we have nowadays with all the new inventions that have come into paper craft in the last few years.
I think this particular cameo stamp has a real ‘Jane Austen’ feel to it. This year it’s the bicentenary of the publication of her most famous novel ‘Pride and Prejudice’. It has sold over 20 million copies worldwide and has been made into numerous film and television adaptations. Who could forget Colin Firth’s Mr Darcy emerging from the lake in the famous BBC adaptation… not me!! The Jane Austen’s appeal is as strong today as it’s always been.
