Color Fusers Blog Hop for February 2020

It’s time for another Color Fusers Blog Hop! This month, we have a gorgeous combination of Blushing Bride, Very Vanilla, Sahara Sand, and Early Espresso!

For some reason, when I think of pink with shades of brown and ivory, I think of vintage, lacy things. So when I was designing my card for this month, I went with that theme. I used Early Espresso card stock for the base, then layered it with Sahara Sand, Blushing Bride, and Very Vanilla on top. The card is embellished with a lacy bow and a shimmery pink flower.

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Early Espresso card stock card base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

Sahara Sand card stock layer: 3-3/4 x 5 inches

Blushing Bride card stock layer: 3-5/8 x 4-7/8 inches

Very Vanilla card stock top layer: 3-1/2 x 4-3/4 inches

Blushing Bride die cut heart: 2-1/4 x 2-3/8 inches

Blushing Bride blossom: 1 inch (approximate)

Sahara Sand card stock sentiment piece: 1/2 x 2 inches (approximate)

While the overall layout of this card is very simple, I added a number of details to dress it up a bit:

  1. The corners on the base are stamped with leaves in Versamark ink.
  2. The top layer is embossed using the Scripty 3D embossing folder.
  3. The flower was crinkled and then coated in Wink of Stella to give it some extra texture, shimmer, and shine.
  4. A Frosted Flower Embellishment with a tiny pearl was added to the center of the flower.
  5. Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim was added, along with a bow to finish it off!

While Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, I plan to use this card for an upcoming wedding. This card could definitely be used for Valentine’s Day, though, as well as an anniversary, engagement, or bridal shower!

I hope you have enjoyed my project today! Please continue to the next stop on this month’s hop, which is Melanie Hockin’s page. I can’t wait to see what she has created this month!

Have a great day!
