More Crate and Barrel Inspired

I couldn't stop with just 4 Crate and Barrel inspired cards. Here's another:

Isn't this caramel container cute? It was my inspiration for the card:

Here are the DEEtails:

1. I chose So Saffron, Lavender Lace, and Elegant Eggplant for my flowers. I punched each color twice with my scallop circle punch. I crumpled them up and adhered them to a Whisper White mat. I used buttons from my stash for the centers of my flowers, with thin strips of card stock to "thread" them.

2. I used my Martha Stweart leaf punch on Certainly Celery card stock and tucked them in with my flowers.

3. I took a strip of Certainly Celery cardstock for the border with my scallop edge punch. I stamped a sentiment from my Trendy Trees set along the edge in VersaMark. (It's a little hard to see in the photo.)

4. At the top of my card, I punched two holes and threaded a piece of Certainly Celery satin ribbon.

5. I then mounted my Whisper White mat to a Lavendar Lace mat, which I adhered to a Certainly Celery card.


  1. It's perfect for the bag, which I just love.

  2. I'm so with you on great Crate and Barrel photography as an inspiration. Fabulous card and interpretation. Hugs, M
