Now let me share my take on the colors 😀

Please join us for dinner

I LOVE how this gift box turned out 😀

I use the In Suspense template to create a “dinner” invitation gift. We have some friends we want to invite over, and I thought a little gift box of homemade raspberry cookies (not cooked yet-sorry!) would be a nice way to invite them over!

For the template itself, I actually cut off the “door hanger” portion. leaving a bit of a top tab, and folded if in half, forward, for a clean and finished look.

I strung my ribbon through the tab closure slot, and added my tag that reads”Please join us”. That sentiment is from the A Spot of Tea set. I omitted the “for tea” part 😀 I love the look of this project.

I had really wanted to use the utensil image from the Fancy a Cuppa? set, to create my own dinner “place setting”, since we released it but had ran out of time to bring my idea into fruition. I love being able to go back and use older products 😀

For the place setting I used the Killer Curves: Fanciful Frames border for the design on my virtual “plate”. I stamped it in green and colored it in. I added some flowers to the border, using the mini flower and “berry” image from the Singing Silhouetteset. I added more color to my plate, using my Copic marker.

I then stamped, colored and cut out my utensils from the Fancy a Cuppa? set, and added them with dimensionals. Don’t they appear to be set in my plate ?! I love that!

The red and green layer are meant to serve as my placemat. Corners are stamped with the corner flourish from the Killer Curves: Fanciful Frames set, in white. A simple detail.

OK I have to admit, I used white instead of ivory :C I totally forgot the color was IVORY! LOL!  But, in my opinion, it was a neutral, so it was OK to switch it out! LOL! I also added a contrasting darker green. It’s all about getting started and running with it.
