No colour co-ordinating dilemmas on this card! i did go through a white on white phase a little while ago, and this was one of the cards i created.The embossing folders i used were cuttlebug swiss dots, and stampin up square lattice. I cut the banners at various lengths, and punched out four circles with a 1″ circle punch, and inked around the edges of them with pale pink ink. i used a piece of wool fibre across the top, some pink ribbon bows, and a prima lace rosette down in the corner. This one was so simple, but I love the effect of white on white for this card.I had a great time with my ladies this morning, and am looking forward to a weekend of crafting – the weather here is cold and wet, so a lovely weekend for crafting.. Til tomorrow….
For the next few days I will show you some wedding and Engagement cards I have been working on for my craft fair stall. This one makes the most of my cuttlebug, and I used 3 different embossing folders – Tied together ( couture creations) for the main background, and swiss dots ( Cuttlebug) and Vintage wallpaper ( stampin up) on the Hearts which were punched out with a Stampin Up punch. Spellbinders Floral Oval for the wording, and a ribbon bow, flowers and pearls to finish.The cardstock is Stampin Up Pool party, and pink pirouette. The nice thing about this design is you can change the colours to match the wedding theme! Til tomorrow….
I I did this card for an order, and the colour scheme was based on the colour scheme of the invitation – all cream and white.The cardstock is a lovely pearlescent cardstock, and the bottom of the card has a specialty paper that is very textured. I cut my hearts with an x-cut heart die, and added a heart buckle to my ribbon. I used a swiss dots embossing folder on the bottom heart for a little more texture, and just used peel offs for the sentiment which was stuck on to a spellbinders label 17 die cut which had been trimmed to size.All that was needed to finish were a few kaisercraft pearls.Sometimes it’s hard to know where to start when it comes to colours for a wedding card if you don’t know the Brides colour scheme, but in those situations I don’t think you can go wrong copying the colour scheme of the invitation – there’s usually a hint there!

I fell in love with this Stampin Up Elegant Bird die, although i didn’t realise it would cut such a large bird – all the same he’s a beauty! On this card I used Stampin Up Twitterpated designer paper, bazzil and stampin up cardstock – basic Grey, a My Minds eye brad, button and ribbon. I ran the body of the bird through the cuttlebug with my trusty swiss dots folder – the first embossing folder I ever bought and still the one I reach for most.No Cards tonight as it’s shopping night and I have to get my gear together for my Paper Flourish class tomorrow – I am looking forward to seeing all my ladies. Til tomorrow….
