Nice, sweet colors, perfect for a wedding card. Which was precisely what I needed for this coming Saturday! I’ll be taking it and the gift card to the wedding, so I’ll just wrap them both in a box and tie it up with ribbon :) Hmmm, I hope she doesn’t read my blog, LOL! Don’t think she does.
Anyway! I wanted it mostly white with just some pops of color, so I made the base of lots of layers of MFT’s Sweet Tooth card stock. Some layers were embossed and some cut out with my Die-namics Designer Labels 3 STAX dies. The sentiment panel was cut from part of the Die-namics Well Worn Greetings Die Only with foam tape between layers. Then I adhered a Die-namics Royal Rose, a couple of Die-namics Rolled Flowers, and some Die-namics Upsy Daisy leaves. I swiped some white pigment ink over the flowers to highlight them a bit, and added pearls to the rolled flowers. There’s a Die-namics Leafy Flourish die cut peeking out from under the “bouquet”, too.
Here’s the inside, with a sentiment from Clearly Sentimental About Romance.
Here are the Die-namics dies I used on this card:
