Hi! I’m thrilled to bring you this week’s project using papers and embellishments from Riddersholm Designs, a wonderful Danish paper company. Riddersholm specializes in a charming vintage styled patterned papers, diecut tags, ribbons, and charms. The product itself is designed by Connie, produced in Denmark and marked with the Scandinavian environmental seal ‘Svanemaerket’ meaning it is produced to protect our environment. A company with an environmental conscience; how refreshing.
Connie provided me with a collection called Apples & Flax - wonderfully full bodied and luscious fall colors or browns, orange, peach and tan. I really had a hard time deciding which papers I wanted to focus on…they are all delicious.
My project is a Star Fold card. This great video tutorial guided me through the cuts and scores and I knew right away that these Riddersholm Design papers would make a wonderful Star Fold card.
After measuring, cutting and scoring my base paper, I added triangles from a complimentary paper on which I stamped flourishes from the Flourishes Scallops & Dots set by Waltzingmouse Stamps. I added dots of Cinnamon Stickles to accent the flourishes and let those dry thoroughly before proceeding.
Upon opening the Star Card you can see the beautiful papers and the lovely embellishments that Connie also included in the package of goodies. The wonderful brown lace made a great accent trim, and those beautiful flowers are the perfect accent.
With the star shape of the card, I thought it appropriate that the sentiment should be on a star as well, so I stamped this sentiment from the Encouragement stamp set from Layers of Colors. I wanted to include this amazing crystal cross so I threaded another piece of ribbon through the top and adhered it to the inside of the card with the ribbon extending through the top so this star card could be hung.
I hope you enjoyed my Star Fold card. Thanks for looking in today and I hope you have found these papers and embellishments inspirational.
