I promised a friend I'd make cards for a wedding and bridal shower scheduled for December. Since it's a winter wedding I thought I'd use cool colors, somewhat wintry, but with flowers, so I created a nosegay with blue and silver and lots of white.
The leaves are cut from silver glitter paper. I added glitter to the roses and scattered pearls throughout. The netting around the edges is multiple organza flowers folded in half and glued in place. The "love" is layered a few times for dimension.
I seldom make cards that don't fit in an envelope, but this card will be hand delivered and at 5 1/2" it fits in one of the square clear boxes I have on hand.
Dies used on the wedding card are as follows:
- Cheery Lynn French Pastry Doily
- Die-namites Leafy Flourish
- Memory Box Chloe Stem
- Frantic Stamper Sending Love/Hugs
Next is the bridal shower card which was much quicker. It's A2 size.
I've had these Prima flowers forever. They come complete with snow and glitter. I added the pearls and tucked in the die cut umbrellas. Stamped a sentiment from Penny Black's "To You" set. The embossed layer is done with a Cuttlebug Heritage Collection embossing folder.
Dies for the bridal shower card:
- Memory Box Petite Umbrella
- Die-namites Leafy Flourish (with a few branches snipped off)
I still have a couple of baby cards to make this month. Life doesn't stop just because we're getting close to Christmas! Have a happy day and I'll see you again soon!
