Here comes the bride, all dressed in white. Except in this case, it’s a wedding card that you will be presenting using nothing but white supplies! The only exception to the rule is that you are allowed to use a neutral ink color (black, gray, brown, etc…) to add a stamped sentiment to the card. So dig out all of your favorite supplies, especially dies, and build a card based on texture rather than color. This is a fun approach to designing so just kick back and let the creativity flow!
I woke up this morning and watched the Project Runway video and cringed when the woman pulled that shocking yellow fabric!! No No NOOOOO!!! So I ran into the craft area and pulled out my white cardstock, vellum and shimmer paper! Ahhhhh Now I feel better! Weddings should be elegant and classy!
Here is my bridal challenge….all white and elegant.
I first cut out the lacey background from white cardstock and then laid vellum on top. Because is was hard to see the pattern, I took a stylus to rub around the details to bend the vellum to enhanced the background die cut.
I then made three layers of the swirly die cut and glued them together to give it some height. I then cute the banner on both white and pearlized paper.
Then I molded the stamp to go along the banner direction, stamping and then embossing. Darn it I forgot to use the embossing buddy before stamping. Oh well.
I then enhanced the card with pearls.
Simple and Elegant
Here is close up of the shimmer paper below the banner, it is so subtle that you really cannot tell.
