This is a card I made for a shower I attended recently.
It uses a new stamp set from the Summer Mini catalogue called Blissful Bride. This is a great set for any weddings and bridal showers you may be attending this year. In addition to the dress and the "something old, something new …" greeting, the set also has a cake, a bouquet and 3 other greetings.
I stamped and embossed the dress in white and then used an aqua painter to colour the flowers on the dress with Bashful Blue ink. Next, I stamped the greeting onto a length of Whisper White cardstock masking a bit of the greeting so it would fit the punch. Since I wanted the piece of cardstock to be a bit longer than what the tag punch normally is, see the photo below showing how I extended the length of the cardstock.
After adding a layer of Bashful Blue cardstock and a layer of Whisper White cardstock that I ran through the Big Shot with the Perfect Details texturz plate, I embellished the card with ribbon and a button also in Bashful Blue to tie it all together.
This card was really tough to photograph because there is so much white but trust me, it is really pretty in person.
