I wanted to get this LE out to its new home so I rushed to take pics and sadly the colors are muted since it was night and I only had a table lamp to light the area. I used Graphic 45 Romantique paper for the main color scheme: browns, golds, coral, sage and a light blue. I am loving this new "fad" in paper crafting -The Loaded Envelopes are like creating and receiving a mini Christmas!!
I made these flowers from a coral colored Bazzill cardstock using McGill Geranium Paper Blossoms punch. They sort of remind me of Peonies.
The arched lace, white flat tassel lace, and the leaf (with rhinestone) lace (on the back) are from Tresors de Luxe . I just LOVE everything from that shop!
|I've been "envious" of all those crafters making the wands with domes. When I received my order of clear ornaments I stopped what I was doing and made a shaker wand for this LE. Who needs to vacuum anyway right??|
It was a little "overstuffed" after I added all the goodies so I added a ribbon just to give it support in shipping.
Here's the back
Adored this rhinestone brooch!! I left it where it could be easily removed so the wonderful crafter receiving it could use it on another project .. or if she likes "blingy" jewelry like I do, she can wear it.
What it looked like before being "stuffed"
Now for the GOODIES!!Not having enough room for all the gifts and goodies is a bummer - so I made a close-able, expandable middle.
THANKS FOR LOOKING!!!
