A Bridal Shower...

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

A fellow Uniko Studio DT member, Ren-Yi, just got married last week! Beverley over at Uniko has organized a wonderful surprise Bridal Shower link up for Ren-Yi, and anyone is invited! Just pop on over to the blog to see the details and all the wonderful cards people have created for her!

I just want to say Congrats, Good Luck, and Happy Wedding Day to Ren-Yi! I hope it was all you've dreamed of and that you made many wonderful memories to look back on! ;)

I am very, very happy with how this card turned out! One of my favorite places for inspiration is Pinterest, and this is the photo I used for inspiration....

Isn't it just gorgeous?!?! I can't stop looking at it! One of the most beautiful wedding cakes I've ever seen.

So, I knew I had to include the gold chevrons on my card. And the beautiful, soft colored flowers. Here is what I came up with...

First, I embossed 2/3 of the card base with a chevron stamp and gold embossing powder. I'm amazed I got them to line up that well, LOL! Then I used PTI's Rose Posie die-cuts and starting stamping away on each die cut. Some of the flowers (and leaves) are adhered directly to the card base, and a few in the foreground are popped up with foam tape. Finally, a simple but appropriate sentiment is stamped at the bottom, on the card base.

Here is a bit of a close up to show the shine of the gold embossing powder!!

I hope you like what I've created, and I would love to hear feedback! Have a super duper happy day! ;)
