Wedding season starts next month, so I decided to design a wedding card using the Petal Palette Stamp Set, along with the coordinating Petals & More Thinlits Dies. I chose two neutral colors: Whisper White and Smoky Slate. To add interest, I made a "window" on the card and added a Vellum Cardstock "curtain".
Card Base: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Smoky Slate Cardstock, scored at 4 1/4"
First Layer: 4" x 5 1/4" Smoky Slate Cardstock. To make the window, center the Layering Square Framelit and put through the Big Shot.
Second Layer: 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" Vellum Cardstock. To make the curtain, place Vellum inside the Quilted Top Embossing Folder and put through the Big Shot.
Third Layer: Scraps of Whisper White Cardstock. Stamp two floral images in Smoky Slate Ink and cut out with the Petals & More Thinlits Dies through the Big Shot.
When using Vellum Cardstock in an embossing folder, a bit of magic happens. The pressure created in the Big Shot turns the embossing folder image white.
- Put SNAIL Adhesive on the back side of the First Layer, around the window.
- Press the embossed Vellum Cardstock over the window.
- Put four Dimensionals on the corners of the Vellum Cardstock.
- Add additional Dimensionals on the back side of the First Layer and attach to the Card Base.
Use SNAIL Adhesive to attach the flowers to the front. The final touch is to add Rhinestones to the corners.
If you want to personalize this card for each wedding you attend, you can color the floral images with the colors used on the wedding invitation.
Last Friday, I went with a friend to the Unique Boutique & Antiques Tour. We had so much fun exploring the back roads of Isanti County in Minnesota. If you are interested in more information, here's the brochure and map. Last weekend, I finally bought annual flowers for the yard. There is nothing better than colorful flowers to brighten up a yard! Sunday, I had my Stamp Therapy class and started designing swap cards with products from the upcoming Annual Catalog. Have a magnificent Monday!!!
