I know! I said I'd be back in a day or two with some bridesmaids cards . . . but I got busy working on my business instead! On Wednesday I had a table at the Women On The Go Expo & Forum at the Karralyka Centre, - a great forum and networking event. This is my stand at the event (you only get half a folding table - so 70cm x 90cm!!).
I had a fabulous morning - connecting with other women is so important for all of us in these busy times - just to know we are not alone, to be inspired, to share ideas and to encourage one another. It's one of the key things I love about my business - women coming together and being creative together and building each other up.
Anyway, I did promise you some cute bridesmaids cards - these were thank you cards I made for the two bridesmaids at last weekend's lovely wedding, we attended.
The base cards and main front panels are Soft Sky Card, layered with Whisper White. I dug out an old favourite retired stamp set (do you remember what it's called??)
The dress image is stamped in Versamark ink then heat embossed with white Embossing Powder. The embossing on the Soft Sky card is done with the Big Shot, using the Happy Heart Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from our current Occasions Catalogue (Page 9).
After I photographed these, I decided they needed a couple more little soft details added, so here's a close up of the extra details.
I did a tiny bit of extra stamping on the white layer on the inside, and also on the envelope.
The bridesmaids wore a beautiful ice blue lace, so hopefully these were a close enough match!
What have you created recently that you had a specific colour in mind and what occasion was it for?
