Dressed in Roses Gift Set


The theme for Cute Card Thursday is Spring and the Papertake Weekly challenge was to create a Matched Set, a card and an envelope, or gift box. I decided to create my card with a lovely new stamp called Dressed in Roses and used the theme to follow through with really pretty papers from Nitwits Possibilities and Tea Party from Krista Designs


The dress was coloured with watercolours which gave a very soft dreamy effect as opposed to the harshness of Markers. I followed the theme through with a bunch of delicate paper roses, and ribbons from Ribbon Oasis. I made an envelope to match and lined this with the check paper.



I made a matching gift box to finish off the set.


Unfortunately by the time I finished this off the light was really bad for photographs.
I would love your comments if you stop by to have a look.
Thanks xx

I have really loved looking through your blog. Hope you don't mind if I put your link on my list of inspirational sites :) -this way I will find you again, and some of my visitors might find you too.

I love the blue Valentine with the hearts on the envelopes.

I really would like to start making proper envelopes - do I really need to buy a template? I've been taking bought ones apart and copying the shape :)

Hi Ann. Your set is absolutely gorgeous. I LOVE that dress stamp and the sentiment that goes with it. I always find purples difficult to work with for some reason, but your set looks stunning!
