It is time for our July 2021 Color Fusers Blog Hop! Today, we have a pretty combination of Basic White, Basic Black, Petal Pink, and Gold to share with you. I just LOVE these colors together, and I love how the gold adds some extra shimmer and shine! My card today features two NEW stamps sets, which I will get to in just a bit!
I don’t know about you, but I always have a ton of wedding cards to make during the summer. This one is going to be sent to a friend’s daughter, who is getting married next month. Her colors are very similar to the colors for this month’s hop, so the timing worked out well! As I mentioned above, I used two new stamp sets to make this card. The set I used for the flowers is called Shaded Summer, and the one I used for the sentiment is called Create with Friends. These are definitely two of my new favorites! I just love the look of the flowers and the large, elegant script of the sentiments. Take a look at both sets up close in the photo below:
As you can see, both sets offer LOTS of gorgeous images and sentiments in addition to the few I used. You could definitely use both for many different occasions!
To make my card, I cut my layers and then used the two floral stamps to stamp the corners in Petal Pink ink. I also used a Water Painter and my Petal Pink Ink Refill to add some paint spatters to the background. I heat embossed the Celebrate sentiment in white on Basic Black cardstock, and cut it using a die from the Tasteful Labels Dies. I added a piece of Petal Pink Organdy striped ribbon across the center of the top layer, then adhered the sentiment over it with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tucked some pieces from the Expressions in Ink Ephemera pack on both sides of the sentiment, adhered them with glue dots, then added some of the sequins from the Ephemera pack as well. I stamped a coordinating envelope, and my project was finished!
Measurements for this card are as follows:
Basic White Thick Cardstock base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)
Basic Black cardstock middle layer: 3-3/4 x 5 inches
Basic White cardstock top layer: 3-5/8 x 4-7/8 inches
Basic Black sentiment piece (as shown): 2 x 3-1/2 inches (approximate)
