I love the colors in this particular inspiration image and I wish I had a scrapbook store nearby so I could peruse the paper section for some paper that looks similar to this. It's got the French Country look to it and that's a style I love.
For today's card, I started with a top folding card base made from Stamper's Select White. The Silver and Pink Paper is a sheet that found at Michaels in Dallas when I was there at Christmas. I only got one sheet because I tend to use a lot more gold than silver, but I think this is so pretty and elegant and I knew it would make a pretty card for just the right person. The hearts are cut from an Accucut die that I have had for a number of years that cuts and embosses at the same time. I cut these from Silver Cardstock and Lovely Lady Cardstock.
The sentiments both came from the Hero Arts Love Stamp & Cut Set. I used Stick-It on both sides of a piece of White Fun Foam, then added the silver cardstock to the top of one side and die cut the whole thing to get the thick word die cut. I'm still not very good at working with Stick-It so I consider this more practice. The small little sentiment on the pink strip is the only stamping I did on this entire project. I used Versamark with Detail Silver Embossing Powder. Once I had the card put together I added some Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. The ones I have are a mix of sizes in 4, 6, 8 & 10 mm all in one package.
This card was easy to put together once I decided on how I wanted my design to look. It was simply a matter of die cutting and assembling.
Thank you so much for coming by today and checking out my project. I love this theme so I hope to have time to make a couple more cards for this challenge. I'm thinking I need to make another of these for a young lady who is getting married in May of this year. If you'd like to leave a kind of encouraging comment, I do read each and every one of them.
