Hi everyone! - its Garden Party Time again - where a magazine clipping from the "inspiration shoe box" is used to make a card.
Here is the photo from last week.
The colors are pretty subtle and it took me a long time to come up with something. I actually made 2 cards -but didn't care much for the first.
So here is the second one. With the subtle colors, I decided on a wedding congratulations theme and I mostly focused on the pillows.
I used a stamp from one of my favorite artists. The stamp is called Victorian Rose, from Impression Obsession. I embossed it using Ranger Gold pearl over Versamagic Magnolia bud ink.
I also embossed over a brass brad for the corner. Just ink it with Versamark, dip it in the embossing powder and heat it (use tweezers to hold it!). If you want more than one coat, just dip it again before it cools and reheat. Mine has 3 coats.
I had all the papers in my stash - Prism cardstock, and embossed vellum and a striped metallic gold.
So that was this week's attempt.
Here is the picture for next week. When I saw it, the first thing I thought of was the Basic Grey Blush collection (one of my favorites). So I may use some of that.
If you want to play along, just leave a comment here with a link to your card and I'll include it in next week's post.
Have a great evening everyone!
