Wedding Theme - International Blog Highlight

Kylie Bertucci has put together another International Blog Highlight where global entries are accepted and then voted on with the Top 10 featuring in a Blog Hop.  The theme this time round was Wedding and my take was to use just two colours - White and Silver.

I used Whisper White to make a 6" square base. The Silver Foil sheet was cut to 5 3/4" square and the top layer of Whisper White is 5 1/2" square.  There were a few things going on to get this card together. Firstly the heat embossing. I softened the birds by silver embossing on Vellum and die cutting. The leaves were heat embossed directly onto the top layer of the card, then gently dry embossed (lifting both tabs on Big Shot platform) with the Brick Wall TIEF. The greeting was embossed on a piece of scrap and cut to fit using the Layering Squares dies, matched with the silver foil for the scalloped mat. A strip of Silver Foil was punched with the soon to be retired Confetti Hearts Border punch and adhered to the bottom of the top layer. Silver 1/8" ribbon was added to the top and bottom of the punched strip as well as tails for the greeting.  Finished off with a couple of the little 'punch poo' hearts. Stamped images are all from Best Birds.




What I didn't account for, was how difficult it is to get a decent photo with silver foil!! I apologise for the quality but hope you get the idea.  Like what you see?...


If you are interested - I have kept the inside simple and along the same elegant lines.  I replicated the mat to give the card some structure and balance, and then just popped on a couple of little Silver Foil flowers die cut from the Bloomin' Heart Thinlits.
