Follow the instructions below to make this cute Merci card:

Paris Merci Note Card


  1. Cut Gray Granite cardstock to 7" x 5". Score at 3-1/2" along the 7" side.
  2. Emboss 3" x 4-3/4" Gray Granite cardstock with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.
  3. Stamp script background image from the Parisian Beauty stamp set twice near the bottom of the embossed cardstock with Bermuda Bay ink.
  4. Near the top right of the embossed cardstock stamp postage circle with Gorgeous Grape in and postage cancellation image with Basic Gray ink.
  5. Distress edges of embossed cardstock with a Bone Folder or fingernail. Adhere to Gray Granite note card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  6. Create a multi-coloured stamped image. Use Sponge Daubers to sponge ink onto the stamp starting with the the lightest colour ink. Sponge Crushed Curry ink on the centre of the Eiffel Tower image. Using different Sponge Daubers sponge the top of the image with Bermuda Bay ink and the legs with Lovely Lipstick and Gorgeous Grape ink.
  7. Huff on the stamp to re-moisten the ink and then stamp onto scrap Shimmery White cardstock. Allow ink to dry.
  8. Die cut the Eiffel Tower image with the coordinating outline die from the Parisian Dies set.
  9. Add Stampin' Dimensionals behind the Eiffel Tower die cut. Remove backing from Stampin' Dimensionals. Wrap Silver Metallic Thread around your fingers several times. Adhere wrapped thread to the Stampin' Dimensionals behind the Eiffel Tower die cut. Adhere die cut to the left edge of the embossed Gray Granite layer.
  10. Cut two pieces of 3" x 3/4" Lovely Lipstick cardstock. Die cut "Merci" from one piece and from scrap Crushed Curry cardstock.
  11. Cover the other piece of 3" x 3/4" Lovely Lipstick cardstock with SNAIL or other adhesive. Carefully layer on the matching Lovely Lipstick piece with "Merci" die cut from it.
  12. Like a puzzle, add the die cut Crushed Curry "Merci" letters into the negative space in the die cut Lovely Lipstick layer. The putty tip of the Take Your Pick tool is a great way to easily pick up small die cut letters and put them in place.
  13. Adhere across Eiffel Tower die cut image with Stampin' Dimensionals at each end.
TIPS: Use the putty tip of the Take Your Pick tool (#144107) to pick up small die cut pieces and place them where you want them.

This lovely card is sure to brighten the day of anyone receiving it.
