Riddersholm Designs "Window Shopping" *Prize

If you're a follower of Paper Craft Planet, you'll know that the past few Saturdays, we've been presenting projects made by our very special sponsor, Riddersholm Designs, a Danish paper company. When I received the package of their papers, ribbons and embellishments, I was in awe of the quality and designs!  The papers were designed by Connie (owner), produced in Denmark and marked with the Scandinavian environmental seal "Svanemaerket," meaning it was produced to protect our environment. Love that!
The projects I made reminded me of going window shopping -- the dress in the store window and of course, a purse (which is actually a gift card holder). The paper set I used for my projects is from the "Turquoise Hills" set, which has a lovely vintage feel. As you can see from my photos, they all have a bit of turquoise (one of my favorite colors) in them. For the photos, I used papers from that set to make a "studio wall."

My first project is a card with several layers. I used my brand new Silhouette to cut the dress and dress form and adhered it to the card with dimensionals to make it 3d-ish. The ribbon and flower are also from Riddersholm Designs. To pretty up the dress, I added some half pearls and to give it the distressed look, I used "Tea Dye" distress ink on all the layers.

Here's the purse gift card holder with that gorgeous cameo pendant! I wish you could see how beautiful this pendant is! To attach it to the box, I slipped the lacy ribbon through the slot where the purse flap normally goes into, then I attached it to the pendant and tied a bow.

Here's the inside of the purse. (Just pretend the gift card inside this purse was for a dress shop; the only gift card I had available was for coffee.)

For your chance to win the line of papers produced by Riddersholm Designs that I have used here for my projects, leave a comment on the PCP Blog post HERE. One lucky commenter will receive the Bello Pastello collection, which contains eight double-sided 200 gr. papers, some cut-out tags, lovely Spanish quality lace, delicious matching ribbon and some sweet cameo jewelry pendant, great for cards and decoration.

Be sure to visit the PCP Blog every Saturday for the next few weeks to see more projects by the rest of the Super Novas using more  Riddersholm Designs Products!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope each of you have a wonderful weekend!
