Bridal Shower Card

Hello and thank you for stopping by.  I am going to a bridal shower and did some brainstorming.  I wanted to make a dramatic alcohol ink background and came up with the idea of using a white wedding dress die cut in a stitched circle spotlight.

Alcohol ink background using flamingo, sunset orange and sunshine yellow.

 The dress is from the My Monthly Hero April 2017 kit, which is a favorite of mine.

I started by making an alcohol ink background with flamingo, sunset orange and sunshine yellow.  I set the panel aside to dry and went to work die-cutting the wedding dress and stitched circle frame.  After my background panel was dry, I assembled my card and stamped my sentiment.  I am very pleased with my card.

I am entering this card in the A Blog Named Hero CAS Challenge.

Happily Ever After Card for a Bridal Shower

It is wedding season so I\’ve been creating cards for Bridal Showers.    In anticipation of designing for brides, I ordered SSS\’s Floral Bliss stamp set and created three different cards.  I am entering this card in the Watercooler Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge .  I am especially happy with how this particular card turned out.  I love the slate cardstock behind the brightly colored flowers.

I stamped the image and some extra flowers and leaves so I could add dimension.  I colored  with Copic markers and then fussy cut everything. The bride\’s favorite color is blue so I wanted to use some pretty blue colors.    I like to use my teflon bone tool to smooth everything out after I am done cutting.  I arranged and then adhered with foam tape.  I love the sentiment, which I heat embossed.

Since the cardstock is dark, I glued a white insert to the inside so I could write my message.  My daughter is a Bridesmaid in her friend\’s wedding and we are hosting the shower together at our home so I wanted to make sure we had a special card.

Thanks for stopping by,
