Not sure about you but wedding season is in full swing for us in the summer and today Designer Gail Linder has some gorgeous engagement cards for you today. Gail mixes and matches our cardstock brilliantly! Glitter Silk and Chocolate Box? Fabulous!
Here is a little bit about these gorgeous cards from Gail:
I’ve had a couple of family members announce engagements recently so I created a couple of cards to celebrate the good news! I started by choosing a gorgeous card from the Chocolate Box collection and cutting a couple of designs out from my Cameo. In the end I settled on the fun sunburst and polaroid and went from there!
For the blue card, I chose the background from the Gemstone collection as the gave it an elegant feel. I’ve embossed the background and adhered my sanded polaroid over the top with pop dots, adding some patterned paper and a red Gemstone card underneath the cut out pieces.
Similarly, behind the sanded sunburst (be careful sanding the fine frame) I used a pink Glittersilk card to add a bit of elegance. The leaves were die cut from Gemstone cardstock also and the project was completed with the fun pink flower!
I added the same greeting to both cards, stamped on a Core Bookmark which I then trimmed with the banner ends. The white bookmark card was so wonderful to stamp on!
So there you have two card designs, made into elegant engagement cards by using specialty cardstock but imagine the same designs in different colors for any occasion!
Today we are here with Design Team Member Char Dobson. Char’s Tueseday tip for you is all about the CD pocket. They are acid free and archival safe so perfect for any project. And self-adhesive so just peal off the back!
Yes…we are in LOVE with these! I love the sentiment that Char uses…wonder what is on that CD?
Other supplies: Bella Blvd stickers, May Arts ribbon, Ranger Distress ink
And Char created a card for us today, too. Love how Char combines purple with the natural jute and burlap flower from May Arts.
Notice the metal embellishments, too? You need some GREAT adhesive for these kinds of embellishments, especially on a card that will be open and closed. That is why we love our Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L power tape.
Char’s next Tuesday Tip is …..don’t be afraid to emboss those Core Cards! Just emboss the front by sliding it in to your folder. They are perfectly sized A2 Cards that will fit right in your standard embossing folders like this one from Provocraft.
