Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Sachet

It's time for a new challenge at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Sachet


SO much inspiration to be had - hearts, sweet patterns, scallops, wood panelling - I used it all in one card!

CC Sachet

I started looking through my stash one thing at a time. Heart dies...here's a fun one with stitching and scallops and even better - it was in my Never-Before-Used-Stash!!  Patterns.  This is an older paper pad, but it has a fun pattern that would fit perfectly in those little sachets and it has a matching woodgrain pattern!  I had a bit of a false start on the border. I originally tried a straight border panel with a variety of die cut stitches on it. It just looked too....straight!!  Then I remember, in my NBUS stash - these curved, scalloped borders!!  This had to be one of the quickest and easiest cards for me in recent memory - the joy of having a large (way-too-big) stash!!

I hope to see you playing along!!  Be sure to check out the other designers on the Curtain Call blog (including our special guest - Tricia Traxler at Simply Stamping) because you will be absolutely amazed at the variety of inspiration from this one picture!

SUPPLY LIST

The paper is from an older 6x6 pad - My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up. The enamel dots are from the MME Lost & Found Record It collection.

I didn't think there was such a thing as a "way-too-big" stash, lol! See....you found everything you needed to make this beautiful card! Those papers are perfect for this and every element really captures the essence of the hearts and woodgrain background in the photo. Fantastic card! Bev
