Story of Elegance 

Good morning!  Happy Tuesday!  I’m back again today with more crafting fun using the Peony Garden suite.  There are so many ways to use this suite – I just keep going and going and going with it.  I think I’ll force myself to move on to more of our wonderful new products after today.  Promise.  As a reminder – Here’s a look at all the fabulous products in the suite.

With so many products, the sky is the limit on what you can create.  Today, I wanted to focus again on the beautiful Designer Series Paper (DSP) that are included.   As I was looking at them and thinking how lovey they are, I thought they were pretty enough to frame.  So that was my inspiration thought for today’s cards.

The peonies in the paper that I chose to highlight today are so pretty and look fantastic layered onto Gray Granite card stock.  I placed my frame on a  4 x 5 1/4 layer of Whisper White card stock embossed using the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing folder.

To create the sentiment panel, I pulled out a go-to die set – Stitched Nested Label dies – and stamped the sentiment in coordinating Gray Granite ink.  I used the Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon and a single Elegant Elegant Faceted gem to accent the panel.

I kept the same design for the second card.  To make it a little different, I changed the dimensions of the floral DSP picture, die cut the frame and used Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle ribbon.  For the sentiment panel, I used the Stitched Rectangles  dies and added a die cut flower using stamps and dies in the Peony Garden Suite.
