Gift sets are so great! A bit better than this paper series, but not by much. I usually am not the kind of person that wants realistic photo paper prints, but this set has my attention. The way the lace is folded really looks dimensional here, even if my photos don’t capture it well. It is lovely.
I used one 12 x 12 sheet for this set. The first cut was to give me a sheet 4 x 12, then a second cut at 5 1/4″ for the card front. I used the remaining piece to trim out the decorative layers. The larger section left, measuring at 8 x 12, was scored to create the matching bag. Put that pretty paper to work, otherwise you are left with a bunch of paper that you love and cannot bear to part with. I know it is hard, but how pretty is this set?
The doilies are so lovely. They are very vanilla on one side and whisper white on the other. So versatile, and made from paper that can be worked with a bit. As you can tell, I sponged these two and gave them a proper crinkle. A doily doesn’t lay flat after all.
The sentiments came from two different sets and I went against my usual on this one. I stamped and fussy cut. I really love a die cut or punch to take care of that, but it had to be done. Both projects were finished off with this elegant vanilla satin ribbon. And yes, it is that smooth and delicious to the touch. I love beautiful ribbon.
Have a creative day!
