Hello friends. The inspiration photo for this months Blog Hop at Papertrey Ink highlights a wedding (reception) using the new popular colors of navy blue and pink. Waaaaaay back when I got married, my colors were dark gray and pink, so I can see the appeal of the navy and pink quite easily! Here's what I came up with for this challenge:
I had had the Floral Flaps Die sitting on my desk for a while now to encourage me to use them....yes, I had bought them months and months ago, and never used them. So anyway, with a wedding themed card in mind, I figured this was the time to figure out how to use these dies! Definitely didn't use them as was intended and cut off the edge strip that is supposed to be folded over to the back of the card. I then lined them up on a square panel of silver glitter cardstock like a quilt block. After gluing in one triangle with all the small pink and green pieces, I finally remembered I had a tool my girlfriend Sue had given me for my birthday (pick.me.up by Silhouette) that worked wonderfully for picking up all those tiny pieces and setting them in the right spaces...the last 3 triangle went much quicker!! :0) Everything was then layered onto a white card base, and then I added a vellum strip that I embossed with the sentiment from Quilled Elegance. A little bit of silver cord finished off my card.
Can't wait to see what everyone else came up with from this inspiration photo, and you can too by clicking right here.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
