Well! I can’t believe I haven’t showcased the cards we made on Saturday, yet!! Of course, some of them will have to remain secret until next year and at the bride’s prerogative, but let’s start with revealing the tease from Friday….
This is a 15cm square card made with my new favourite colour, Concord Crush. It tones perfectly with the Crumb Cake card blank and how about this for a tip….I’ve inked whisper white ribbon to get a perfect match. I’m entering this in the Make it Monday Challenge where Anything Goes
I’ve stamped the gorgeous image, Wedding Wheels, on to Whisper White card stock and inked the edges to give it a vintage feel.
And finally the beautiful embossed background! Vintage Wallpaper…available from the Mini Catalogue (check out the link in my sidebar).
Now the embossing folders are the approximately A6 in size, but you can easily emboss bigger sizes. I’ve achieved this by cutting a square of approximately 14cm. I’ve embossed one side of the card by running it through the BigShot. I’ve then lined the embossed card up with the pattern in the embossing folder, and run it through the big shot again, this time hanging the already embossed card over the edge of the cutting mat to avoid getting a line. It works perfectly!
And because I love this image (available in the Mini – but only til September) so much, I made another card with it! This time in Baja Breeze, using Elegance Designer papers as the backing and trimming the image with Boho Blossoms and ribbon.
And here’s Louisa’s take on the cards. Louisa bought some of her own stash, but her mum was so impressed with these she took one for herself! High praise indeed!!
Thanks for stopping by.
