This week at The Shabby Tea Room, Starr is hosting a challenge called ‘Elegance’. Coming from a gracious southern lady, the match is perfect! We are challenged to produce a card or project that uses the colors in this beautiful inspiration photo, along with a ribbon, bow and a flower…
I chose to play with a shallow, ‘shadow box’ design…
I created a 1/4″ deep box, with a die cut circle on the front. A ring of ivy leaves was die cut twice, from silver foiled card stock. One ring was placed around the circle opening and the second die cut was snipped apart with portions applied to the ring of leaves, adding some asymmetry and a more flowing appearance…
Inside this little ‘box’, the sentiment was stamped and ringed with some colored chalk…
A white silk ribbon bow and some paper flowers complete the design. This ‘box’ was then adhered to a card base. I love that this card would be suitable for a range of occasions. It will work equally well for a wedding, birthday or anniversary and certainly stand out from the crowd!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a terrific week.
