Last week Jane from Janeymays sent me some delicious papers from an Australian company called...Delish Designs! They're really beautiful papers to work with - heavy-weight and double-dipped with co-ordinating designs on both sides.
The paper in this project is Fresh - Entree from the Bistro line, beautiful soft blues and beige. Very elegant. I thought it would look good teamed with gold so I heat embossed the Crafty Individuals bird stamp several times, cropping it for the treats box and tags. The bird on the tag attached to the gift bag of (rather yummy!) macaroons is stamped and embossed directly on the Delish paper.
On the card I heat embossed some Tim Holtz Grungeboard using metallic gold ink and clear e/p. Drawing from the swirls of the grungeboard I also heat embossed a gold flourish on the large tag.
All edged are sponged with Distress Inks and that yummy ribbon is part of the co-ordinating Bistro line.
I'll be taking this little gift and card round to some elderly friends. Hope they like it!
Thanks for stopping by, hope you get to create with (or eat!) something delicious today!
