Update – My apologies precious readers – pictures of my Raspberry Tart stationer box have been removed for exclusive publication in an on-line magazine.
I usually struggle designing cards that are simple. I don't think I'm alone, I hear that from other designers. Sometimes its easier to throw together a bunch of embellishments and techniques than to put together a simple, elegant design. So, I'm really proud of these note cards for the stationery box.
As promised, here's the recipe. Everything is from Stampin' Up! except the pearls. They are from K&Company. I started with a 6" x 3" piece of Whisper White, folded over to make a 3" x 3" mini card.
- Stamp Set – Sweet Stems
- Paper: Whisper White and Rose Red
- Misc: Scallop Square Punch, 1-1/4" Square Punch, Kiwi Kiss Satin Ribbon, and the new Background Texturz plates.
These are to coordinate with this full-size card.
This card uses the Texturz plate with the Rose Red paper. After I ran the paper through the Big Shot, I rubbed it with our sanding block to get a two-toned look. I love the way this Texturz background plate coordinates with the Raspberry Tart paper. I used the Lovely Letters stamp set to make the monogram, and that ribbon is our new organza ribbon - so luscious and easy to work with.
I have to confess that I bought the Raspberry Tart paper against my better judgement. The color combinations kind of freak me out. But, then, when I see it in a finished project, it's stunning.
And, finally, the stationery box holds four of these gift tags.
They're made with the Texturz plate on Whisper White, with the Scallop Edge punch, the smaller of the two holes in the Crop-a-dile, and the Sweetest Stem embosslet. There's also some Rose Red, Kiwi Kiss and Pretty in Pink paper, the Pewter Jumbo Eyelet, and those organza and satin ribbons.
Next time, I'll share the details about the box itself. Don't forget to e-mail me if you want to come to our Open House/Stamp Camp. The deadline is Sunday (see post below).
