Celebrate...Damask Designs



When I saw K. Werner's Color Challenge earlier today, I just HAD to create something with those colors. Oh how pink and brown look so lovely together. But, when I sat down to create, I stumbled and stamped a couple of things, then said YUK! Finally, I pulled out Papertrey Ink by Dawn's new Damask Designs set and started stamping. I decided on a simple layout and added a little texture with embossed dots.

Don't you all know how much I love a damask design? Just take a look at my blog design. ALL DAMASK! :) My bedding is damask and probably a few other things I have, like a skirt! This design is so classic, yet trendy now. I like how it can be used in various color schemes.

Anyway, have a great Friday Eve! :)

Step-by-Step
  1. Trim dark chocolate cardstock to an A2 card.
  2. Trim close to cocoa cardstock to 3.75"x4.5", then stamp damask design.
  3. Using a Scor-Bug, score dotted lines on bottom of cocoa cardstock.
  4. Stamp sentiment.
  5. Tie ribbon around cocoa cardstock into a bow.
  6. Mat on white cardstock.
  7. Add flowers.
