Pretty Blue Wedding

It may still be summer, but it has felt more like fall the past couple of days. It’s been cool and not-stop raining, which has left us finding things to do indoors. So what’s a girl to do but get in the craft room and craft!

The card I’d like to share with you today, is one I created using the current “Wedding” challenge at The Card Concept, combined with this week’s sketch challenge at Try Stampin’ On Tuesday.


My card:


I really wish it had been nice and sunny today, so I could take the picture of my card outside.  The Silver Foil card stock is so shiny, that it was hard to take the picture with a flash – did the best I could, lol!

I was inspired by those pretty blue and whites in the Wedding inspiration photo, to create a Clean and Layered card. The Big Shot got a work out with this one, as there really is not a lot of stamping, just a lot of layers.

I started with a base of Pool Party, then a layer of Whisper White. Then I ran another piece of the Pool Party through the Big Shot with the Lovely Lace EF and cut it into strips. The focal point is a layer of the Silver Foil card stock, then a Pool Party layer and finally the sentiment layer.

I didn’t have any buttons that would work for the sketch, so I substituted a big, white bow, with ribbon that I imagined a bride might have wrapped around her bouquet.

Thanks for taking a look!

Here’s what I used:

Card Stock: Pool Party, Whisper White, Silver Foil Sheet

Ink: Versamark

Stamp Set: Label Love

Tools & Embellishments: Big Shot, Lovely Lace Embossing Folder, Deco Labels Framelits, Artisan Label Punch, Heat Tool, Silver Emboss Powder, Whisper White Organza Ribbon
