CREATIVE CIRCLE DESIGN TEAM - AUGUST BLOG HOP


 Welcome to the Creative Circle Design Team Blog Hop! If you've come from Lynn's Blog, you are in the right place. This month we were challenged to do a wedding card. I decided to keep mine relatively simple, but elegant:


I love the color combination of Gold and Very Vanilla. I used the "Happy Heart" (appropriately named for this post) embossing folder on a piece of 4 x 5 1/4" Very Vanilla cardstock. I wrapped the 1/4" Natural Trim around it and added a small bow. The flower is cut from the "May Flowers Framelits" in Gold Foil. I cut three flowers - one for the bottom, middle, and top layer. I cut off the outer petals of the second layer, and cut out only the center of the third flower. They are stacked and popped with itty-bitty pieces of dimensionals.  I added a pearl for the center. The card front is then mounted on a Very Vanilla card base (5 1/2" x 8 1/2", folded at 4 1/4"). You can see the dimension of the flower better in this picture:


The background for the sentiment is cut from the "Lots of Labels" framelits (smallest one). The sentiment is from the "Rose Wonder" stamp set which I stamped with Versamark and embossed with Gold embossing powder. I fussy-cut the backing for the sentiment in Gold Foil. I also decorated an envelope to match.


Here's the inside of the card. I added one-half of a die-cut flower and the verse is from the stamp set "Rose Wonder" which was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with Gold embossing powder.




I added a small gift box (or wedding favor) to go with my card. I used the "Clear Tiny Treat Boxes" and decorated the same as my card using the embossing folder on the Very Vanilla cardstock and the die cut flower.


 Here's my entire project. The supplies I used to make this project are listed below.
