Evening Invitation

Hi Bloggers.

Here's a card from the Couture Creations Wedding Show I did on Create & Craft recently -

For the background, I dusted a piece of Milk Card with my anti-static bag, inked the Daisy Chain Mask up with Perfect Medium, placed it face down onto my dusted card and then tan it through the Grand Calibur. The ink transferred to the de-bossed pattern. I dusted Cosmic Shimmer Enchanted Gold all over the surface.

I cut the Couture Creations Bold Bouquet Die out of Milk Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Bold Flourish Wedding Stationery Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Bright Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using a Justrite Vintage Labels 4 Die and also cut a mat out of Milk Card using the next size die in the same set.

I cut the border die from Sue's Dotty 3D Bow die set out of Milk Card.

I made a bow using the same die set using a mix of Milk and Coconut White Card.

I assembled the card as shown adding a dot of Cosmic Shimmer Ivory PVA to each corner.

Thanks for stopping by.

  21. Hi Julia

    I love the technique for the background and have to try it. It's also a very nice invite. I dread to think how much "professionally" made/ printed would cost- I'd take handmade any day!
