Bridal Shower Card
This is a bridal shower card I did for a friend, the same friend who wanted the wedding card in black, white and dark purple. This time around, I opted to omit the black, and just did a white and purple card. I started with a Crushed Concord card base (SU retired colour) and folded and scored it to be a top folding card. I used Deasy Designs Bloom rose stamp and stamped it repeated in Colorbox Frost White ink all over the card front.
While that dried, I stamped the dress (LawnFawn) in Archival Jet Black ink on some white shimmer cardstock. I heat set it, then fussy cut it. I had seen a card done by @ishouldsleep on Pinterest, and wanted to CASE the layout http://t.co/IOaNDcpcL4 To do the layout, I took a scrap of the dark purple cardstock, and ran it through a Hero Arts/Sizzix Flourish embossing folder, leaving the bottom outside of the folder so it wouldn’t be embossed. I tried to do some EP with the sentiment (Hero Arts) but I stamped it crooked, so to do the rescue, I stamped the sentiment again in Dusty Concord Distress Ink on a scrap of the shimmer cardstock and heat set.
For final assembly, I took some geometric ribbon and wrapped it around the card front. I took some cute heart ribbon (I got mine at Quietfire Design), and tucked it under the white stamped scrap. I rounded all the corners of all the papers, then adhered the white scrap to the dark purple panel. I then adhered the dark purple panel to the card front. I foam mounted the dress to the embossed portion of the dark purple panel. I found a Stickled heart that I was originally going to use on the wedding card, but didn’t, so I just glued it to the top left corner of the white scrap.
Thanks for having a look 🙂
