The first second I saw the new Love Games collection I was totally taken with the black and white Damask pattern. I love damask patterns and especially love them for home decor pieces. For this frame, I recovered a clearance aisle photo frame and added ribbon and embellishments for a classic and romantic feeling.
I wrapped the frame in 1 3/4″ wide silk taffeta ribbon that has a green and brown weave. It changes color depending on the light.
I embellished over the ribbon with flowers in brown and green and added two skeleton leaves. I topped the flowers with a Love Games Cardstock sticker. I applied the sticker to a scrap of patterned paper to cover the adhesive and to add a little more structure to the sticker.
The skeleton leave add an interesting texture to the design. I love that they are transparent and allow the pattern of the paper and the color of the ribbon to show through.
