Wedding Day Wishes

Hi Bloggers.

Thank you so much for your emails to the shows yesterday. I'm sorry that they all weren't read out. Hope you enjoyed the shows. I had a great time. Don't know what to do about my shaky hands though. I'm not nervous at all but my brain doesn't seem to tell my hands that!

Today I'm sharing the card that I demonstrated first in the 6pm show.

I know that it's peach again but I was working within the products on the shows. Besides I do like peach - my bridemaids wore peach so that may be why I picked it for these stamps.

Anyway, back to the card. For the background, I ran a piece of white card through the Grand Calibur with the Heart Confetti Mask from That Special Touch. Keeping the mask in place, I then inked through the mask with the Eco Green Peach Satin Dye Ink Pad using Cut & Dry Foam. Again keeping the mask in place, I spritzed with the Cosmic Shimmer Mister Pearl Mist.

I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions Mr & Mrs Stamp Set using the Peach Satin Dye Ink and then popped some Cosmic Shimmer Aurora Crystal Sparkle Embossing Powder on top and heat set. I cut the image out leaving a small border around it. I made a frame out of peach card using Spellbinders Classic Rectangles Large and Classic Scalloped Rectangles Large.

I ran a piece of white crochet ribbon down the right-hand side of the card ruffled some peach fizz vintage ribbon on top. I added a bow made from 2 lengths of the vintage ribbon. I made a flower from the peach fizz vintage ribbon and some white wrinkle-edge ribbon which I had cut in half. I added this to my bow with a couple of crystal decorative stick pins.

I stamped the sentiment from the Bride & Groom Stamp Set using the Peach Satin ink and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Ribbon Banners Die Set and inked with the Peach Satin while still in the die.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White Pearl around the edges.

Hope you like the card.

Thanks for stopping by.
