Parisian Dream Card Featuring Delight™ Modeling Compound

Hi Friends:  I love to use Delight™ air dry modeling compound on my mixed media cards because the items that I make are so lightweight and easy to add to the cards.  You can use Delight™ with fondant molds to make some really beautiful embellishments.  For this project, I used some molds to create a Parisian-based card with a lovely cameo focal point.  I saw these Eiffel Tower inspired favor boxes on clearance in one of the big box stores and I just knew they would be great on cards.  And I knew that I had the ideal cameo and frame molds on hand to create the focal point to go with it. These Prima papers with the French writing and images were perfect, too!
