Quick, Easy and Elegant Prized Peony Stationery Gift. I am loving the new Peony Garden Suite. It was the only Suite I ordered in full using the Suite Bundle Code. I knew I wanted it all and I am not disappointed, it really is so elegant.
I wanted to make some gifts for a couple of my Father’s neighbours who have been keeping an eye on him and getting some shopping in if he needs it. My brother and I are really so grateful to them, so the very least I can do is give them a little handmade gift. After some thought, I decided that some elegant card would be perfect, so set to work to design them. I settled for simple elegance with just the smallest and even that is stamped off, so is second generation Gray Granite. To add a little more elegance I added a layer of Gray Granite between the 2 layers of Whisper White. Sometimes less really is more.
The box is super simple. It is just one of our Acetate Card Boxes with a wrap of the Peony Garden Designer Series Paper. I decided to make the wrap narrower than I had originally planned and allow the large, die cut, Peony to be front and centre. When I am making a wrap for one of these boxes I find it is much easier to work on it while the box is still flat. Once the Designer Series Paper has been added, I build the box.
The large Peony was stamped in full strength Gray Granite and then coloured with Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam Stampin Blends. After I had die cut the flower I went round the edge and coloured all the white areas with the light Gray Granite Stampin Blend. This little touch makes a huge difference to the finished look. It seems to make the stamped image stand out more, or is that the edge fading into the background more? The flower was attached to the box with Dimensionals. This has two effects, firstly it makes the flower float over the box, but it also helps to hold the paper in place. I had the seam of the paper at the front and covered the join with the stalk of the flower. Other than stamping the small Peony on the front of the envelope in full strength, that was the gift finished. Six elegant cards in an equally elegant box.
