Challenges Frosted Designs Weddings
For my 'Trapezium' shaped card I decided to show you a new range from my wedding stationery portfolio. A Bridesmaid thank you card., I have various styles, but this is the most minimal. Some have ribbon or bead handles and more decoration colour matched to the brides scheme.
Pretty self explanatory. The base was cut from an A4 sheet and folded to make a DL card size. I then trimmed a little off diagonally from each side. I did 3 cm in at the folded spine, down to the original edge. I then printed the sentiment on the computer. Passions Conflict and Papyrus font and cut the strip to look like the front of a handbag and stuck using 3d foam. The flowers are just punched from a pearly white vellum using an X Cut Retro flower punch. The larger are double layered, with the smaller single one in the centre.
I glittered the sentiment and added gems to finish the flowers.
I cut a large cirle from my Grand Calibur, socred and folded in half. Knowing I wanted to emboss onto the black I dusted with my Static Remover pad from Stampin Up. There's no way you can emboss onto black card without one! [well I can't] The white leaves are Stampin Up Autumn Splendor, embossed with SU white embossing powder. The gold leaves are a clear set, that escapes me [I never keep packets tut tut] Then the daisies are from Stampotique, I gold embossed onto a pink piece and orange piece. The centres are Stampin Up Silver Glass Glitter...lush!
I do think the 'white' space police may be on the look out for me, but, propertionallly I think there is just enough...just!
I'm gonna stop saying I'm back to 'normal' and just quietly plod along in my own little world and eventually get to you all.....
Have a great week
