Hi friends! I meant to post this sooner, but we spent the day in Maine enjoying the gorgeous weather and taking my MIL to lunch for Mother's Day. Tomorrow we'll be hard at work in the garden, my favorite Mother's Day activity. :) I hope you're having a great weekend, too!
This week's Card Patterns sketch is so pretty and versatile, it will definitely be going in a file for future use.
I've had an idea in my mind for a while to do an all-white wedding card with clear embossing, so I finally tackled it. I love how it turned out, and the effect is even prettier in person.
I first stamped the word "love" from Waltzingmouse's Say it Loud and heat embossed it in silver. Then I stamped the flower and leaves from PTI's Delightful Dahlia and heat embossed them with clear powder (I embossed the flower first, then masked it before stamping the leaves).
Behind the main panel I stitched two white cardstock panels, the top one debossed with music score and the bottom one debossed with a diamond pattern.
To embellish, I added a ruffled satin ribbon and bow across the top, a tiny tag stamped with the sentiment "wedding wishes", and some silver pearls.
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (White)
Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Delightful Dahlia, Tiny Tags II), Waltzingmouse (Say it Loud)
Ink: Versamark, Clearsnap (Antique Pewter)

Accessories: A.C. Moore (ribbon), Michaels (silver pearls), Jo-Ann (silver embossing powder), Stampendous (clear embossing powder), thread
Thanks for your visit! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
