Orange Sunflower with Cream and Brown

For today's challenge on Nichole Heady's blog Capture the Moment, we were asked to use one of the featured PTI stamp sets from 2009, or to draw inspiration from any of the projects she highlighted.  I don't have those sets, so I chose one of the projects to work from.  It's this one, the 6th "giga guide lines" example in Nichole's post today.  Thank you, Nichole, for your inspiration!

From the inspiration project, I combined elements of the card and the gift box.  From the card, I took the cream oval shape, with its circular orange motif and brown sentiment stamped across the design, and also the diamond-embossed cream panel.  From the box, I took the dark brown border and the horizontal orange accent, which I changed from ribbon to patterned paper. 

 Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) dark chocolate (dark brown), orange zest, vintage cream, and the damask print from PTI orange zest pattern pack.  In real life, the stamped flower looks less red; it's a good match with the patterned paper.
  • Embossing folder is Lifestyle Crafts diamonds and dots.
  • Die is from Spellbinders large classic ovals
  • The sentiment "thinking of you" is from PTI keep it simple: thinking of you, and the flower is from PTI simple sunflower.  They are stamped with PTI orange zest, dark chocolate, and fine linen (tan) ink cubes.
Created for Operation: Quiet Comfort.
