Princess of France - The Stampsmith

Good evening everyone. I want to thank you for commenting on my "Thinking of You" card last week; your lovely comments are very encouraging and much appreciated. I had fun inking the photo image and I inked a few extra from the same stamp set. The set is called Julia and Friends from the Stampsmith; it has 6 beautiful images.

I made a little gift box and a tag card using images of Princess of France from Shakespeare Love's Labour's Lost.

The tag card measures 4"(W) x 6"(H). The LO is similar to my Thinking of You card, except I used different embellishments and Pion DP on this one.

I attached a small TH easel diecut to the back of the tag card so it can stand up for display. I also made a small heart-shaped tag (Magnolia DooHickey die) which can be inserted behind the stamp image.

I cut out the pink flowers and leaves from lace I purchased from Crafty Individuals and used them to frame around the photo and card edges. I also used Viva Decor Pearl Pen to add tiny pearls around the photo and mat.

For the small gift box, I used SU Petal Cone die by Sizzix to cut out the cardstock. I decorated the box with the same photo image and embellishments.

I enjoyed making this gift set as it allowed me to switch from my other crafting styles.
Hope you enjoy this visit.
Hugs and wishes from
I wish to enter this creation in the following challenges:
