Papertrey Tuesday

It's been a little while since I've done a packaging inspiration challenge here, so I guess there is no better time than the present! This really jumped out at me when I saw it because the colors reminded me of Papertrey Ink's Terracotta Tile and Dark Chocolate. The layout was clean and simple and it had lots of possibilities for a card.

Here's what I came up with using that picture as inspiration:

You can see that I started with a Dark Chocolate card base, then used the Woodgrain Impression Plate. To get a bit more visual depth, I used my Dark Chocolate inkpad direct-to-paper.

Stamp-wise, I used the big glorious damask image from Damask Designs. Working quickly, I stamped it with Vintage Cream ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I then framed it with a frame fromVintage Labels. The sentiment is from Year Of Flowers: Daffodils and is a great multi-purpose stamp. I finished it off with a little rustic twine and Vintage Cream ink on the edges.

I would LOVE to see what that packaging inspires you to come up with! Leave a link to your card so I can comment on it.

Have a great day! Be well.
