For this week's prompt our theme is....
I'll be interested to see how you interpret this, but here are some ideas:
- Extra large card format
- Bling and pearls galore
- Layer upon layer
- Combining loads of textures and dimension
- Pop-up and intricate designs
- Showing off various techniques
- Really going to town with the design - make it fussy and elaborate!
With those points in mind, here's what I made. :)
Paper: Pink Paislee
Stamps: Waltzing Mouse Stamps, PTI
Dies: PTI, Magnolia, MFT, MSE (alpha)
Flowers: MM, Wild Orchid Crafts, Prima
Die-cut elements: Crate Paper
Other: Heart doily, vellum, sewing machine, seam binding, embroidery thread
So just a few elements on this card. ;)
There are quite a few layers here that required a bit of planning with the sewing machine to make sure they all came together ok.
I made a vellum sleeve that is pinked at the top and bottom then has the matching plain oval die cut out of it to reveal the fancy oval greeting below. Quite like how subtle this turned out and how it contrasts with the busy collection of items tucked into the pocket made by the grey spotty paper. The card was bigger than I usually make too: 5.25 in. x 7.75 in.
And I hope the happy couple liked it! We received a hand-made invitation, and I tried to follow the original colour palette and pearly design chosen by them. :)
