Hello, today I created a wedding card for a friend/customer who needed a wedding card in grays and pearl white. I had a copy of the invitation, so I incorporated some elements from it into the card.
I used one of my new Elizabeth Craft Designs dies and peel off gems. I used various flower dies and cut a combination of large and small flowers using Bazzill silver cardstock, vellum that has a beautiful tiny floral white on white pattern and a pearly embossed cardstock. I mixed and matched them and used little brads to hold the pieces together. I cut the leaves out of the silver cardstock using a Sizzix die I got on clearance for $1 🙂 Can you say “Awesomesauce”?!
The card base is medium gray American Crafts heavyweight cardstock, and the patterned paper on the base is Carta Bella from the Paris Girl line…not sure if that is retired or not, I have had it for a while, and I LOVE every pattern in this collection, so I use it sparingly. Needless to say, I am quite frugal with my supplies.
I did mat the patterned paper with black cardstock before mounting it on the card base. Finally I stamped a piece of the pearlized paper (which was also used for the ECD Entwined Circles) with a sentiment from Taylored Expressions, Lifetime of Love set. I scored this adorable set for just $5. I think it is still for sale on Taylor’s website for that price. I cut the monogram out with Kwik Kutz Eliza letter set that my wonderful daughter got me (brand new) from a garage sale. This episode is all about good deals. HA!
