Welcome to another week at The Paper Players! This week we have a sweet inspiration photo that is sure to garner more than a few "awwws", take a peek:
Isn't she the cutest?! Inspired by the big pink box, I started with a distressed flower in Blushing Bride and built the card around it. My next choice was this polka dot paper from the Love Letter DSP--just love those dots! Now I had paper and a flower but wasn't sure what to do with it so I went looking for a sketch and found this versatile one over at Pals Paper Arts.
Pretty easy to see where I went with this one but here's a close-up of that scrumptious 5/8" satin ribbon in Basic Black. I ran a piece of sticky strip on my card front and lifted up the ribbon bit by bit to make the ruffled loops. Then I stitched it in place and decorated it with a row of self-adhesive Black Flourish jewels!
I was finished with the whole card except the sentiment and was stumped on what to use. I thought the sophisticated look of it lent itself to a wedding card. So even though I don't currently know any newlyweds, I went for this pretty sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes. Isn't that font just beautiful?!
I love making these flowers--they are so quick & easy and pack a big punch! Awhile ago, I promised you a pictorial on making these beauties for yourself so check back tomorrow when I [finally] deliver on that promise! In the meantime, hop over to The Paper Players and check out all the sweet creations made by the design team. We hope you're inspired to join us this week!
