This set contains such darling Christmas related sentiments, you'll definitely see me using these stamps again. I started off using Prima's line of vintage papers called the Printery collection. I distressed the perimeter edges and inked up the sentiment panel with a bit of Antique Linen distress ink. The decorative frame around the sentiment is one half of a Fleur De Lis Nestability square. I added some Bisque Liquid Pearls to the perimeter for a little definition. The lace came from my mom who is a real estate agent and sold a house for a woman who was a seamstress and had bags of old lace. I layered that over a box pleat length of silk ribbon and to hold both of them together a added a strip of SU!'s grosgrain ribbon. The flower is also from Prima and I touched up the edges with the Antique Linen distress ink, to tie in all the colors. Under that is a raffia bow.
Make sure you take a peek at what the other Paper Sweeties' DT members are making with these beautiful stamps as well:
