This past year, I spent time with several brides to be as well as at a wedding. So for today, I wanted to share a card I made yesterday with you. The theme is wedding. It is a card I would give to the happy couple on their special day.
I chose to use the colors of Bashful Blue and Whisper White for this one. I would try to coordinate it to the couples chosen color scheme for their wedding but since there is no special wedding in mind, I went with the first colors I grabbed. Anyway, I used those delightful rosettes on this one. The base card is the white. I usually use either white or vanilla as the base then add the other colors. The only layer added to this one is a Bashful Blue layer which had been run through the big shot using the Finial Press impression folder. I then attached a piece of Whisper White taffeta ribbon to the blue layer by applying runner adhesive to the ribbon that would go on the back and then bringing it around and making a knot in the front. Using more runner adhesive, I attached the layer to the base card. The smaller rosette is a solid blue layered on a 2 3/8" scallop circle in white. I then added the small flower from the BoHo Blossom punch to the center. I always use my Tombo liquid glue to attach the rosette to the back piece and the front piece. I then sit something heavy on it until it dries completely. I added a light blue rhinestone to the center and it was ready for the card. It is attached with glue dots.
Here is a close up of the larger rosette on this card. I started the same way with a solid blue strip. I scored it a 1/4" intervals. Once scoring was complete, I put it through the Lace Ribbon border punch. This gives it an elegant look. It kind of reminds me of a snowflake. It is layered on a 2 1/2" circle in white. I then added a flower from the BoHo Blossom punch with a flower from the flower punch in the itty bitty punch pack. Again, I placed something heavy on it until it dried. A rhinestone was added and it was attached using glue dots.
For the greeting, I turned to the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. If you do not have this set, I highly recommend it. It works extremely well on so many cards for so many occasions. It is my go to set. I stamped the greeting in VersaMark ink and added silver embossing powder to it. I heat embossed it to give it an shiny, elegant look. I punched it out using the word window punch and attached it using dimensionals. While I did not take a picture of the inside, I did heat emboss it with silver embossing powder too. My card is all done and ready to go. Now I just need someone to get married so I can send it to them!
As you head out to your weekend, I wish you a lot of fun. Do something you really want to do and relax a little if you can. I will return Monday with another card to share. Until then, thanks for dropping in today.
