Celebrate…Damask Designs

When I saw K. Werner’s Color Challenge earlier today, I just HAD to create something with those colors. Oh how pink and brown look so lovely together. But, when I sat down to create, I stumbled and stamped a couple of things, then said YUK! Finally, I pulled out Papertrey Ink by Dawn’s new Damask Designs set and started stamping. I decided on a simple layout and added a little texture with embossed dots.

Don’t you all know how much I love a damask design? Just take a look at my blog design. ALL DAMASK!:)My bedding is damask and probably a few other things I have, like a skirt! This design is so classic, yet trendy now. I like how it can be used in various color schemes.

Anyway, have a great Friday Eve!:)


  1. Trim dark chocolate cardstock to an A2 card.
  2. Trim close to cocoa cardstock to 3.75″x4.5″, then stamp damask design.
  3. Using a Scor-Bug, score dotted lines on bottom of cocoa cardstock.
  4. Stamp sentiment.
  5. Tie ribbon around cocoa cardstock into a bow.
  6. Mat on white cardstock.
  7. Add flowers.

I really like your card, simple clean lines and pretty colors.

I also like how you always include the instructions (so helpful for folks new to cardmaking).

Thanks for sharing your creativity!
