A couple of weeks ago one of our former youth students got married and one of the colours she loves is blue so I tried to pull together some ideas that might work and ended up making three cards.
On this first design I started by using the beautiful Sketchy Flowers and stamping the solid posies and leaves in Pacific Point ink onto Pacific Point cardstock. Once that was dry I used the outline stamp from the flowers and leaves and stamped that overtop using VersaMark ink and then added silver embossing powder to make it all shimmery and shiny...and more wedding-like.
I cut out several Always words from our CutUps Die, layered and glued them together and then added some shimmery silver paint on top. Silver really pops on the deep blue.
Some dribbles of silver paint and then some sequins finish it off.
This next design was what I originally had in mind for the wedding card, but of the trio I made, it's my least favourite, There's something about the layout that doesn't seem to work for me. But, I'll show it to you anyways. :)
Similar idea for both cards, I think it's the positioning of the flowers that I'm not really sure about. Something isn't quite right for me in the layout!
On this last design I thought I'd do an all over posie feel again and then add a different sentiment peeking out of the bottom of the card.
This is a really great way to showcase sentiments and also the extra glitz of embossing!
