I had a request from one of the ladies at my Beachmere Class to create a Wedding card as her granddaughter is getting married soon. She showed me the invitation so that I could match the colour and I think Calypso Coral is perfect. I embossed Calypso Coral card using the Happy Hearts Embossing Folder and attached it to Whisper White card. I stamped the greeting from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set using Calypso Coral ink onto the right hand side of the Whisper White card. I wrapped the top of the Calypso Coral card using the Silver 5/8″ Satin Ribbon and tied a knot. The panel is attached to scored and folded Smoky Slate – I love how this card takes on a real silver look and is a perfect match for the ribbon. I stamped the hearts from the Hello Life stamp set onto Whisper White card using Calypso Coral ink and cut them out before attaching to the card front. I punched out a small heart from Calypso Coral card using the punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and attached it over the other two.
Inside I kept the card pretty simple -I attached a piece of Smoky Slate card behind one long edge of a narrow piece of Calypso Coral card embossed with the Happy Hearts Embossing Folder.
Fortunately the lady who asked for the card loved it and all in all it was a great success this week in class. I’d love to hear what you think.
Bye for now,
