Pink Perfection


I've got a card to show you that I'm really proud of.  A friend asked me to design and make a card for a special occasion.  It appears very simple but it's quite detailed.  Let me explain.

I began with a 5 1/2" soft gray card base.  I added textured pink cardstock on top only 1/8" smaller.  I used a pretty pattern paper with the gray and pink colors and added it to the bottom half of the card, also 1/8" smaller.  A white satin ribbon was adhered to cover the seam and taped to the back.  Now I was ready to make the flowers.  I used a Stampin' Up! set called Secret Garden.  I used the coordinating dies to cut out the flowers.  I colored them with Copics, put a few layers together and added a pearl to the center.  I die cut leaves from the same set in soft gray.  I used foam dots to pop up the flowers.


I love the soft and romantic look to the card.


I then took the project to another level.  I used an envelope liner die and cut some of the pattern paper to make it extra special.


I then turned over the envelope and made a label.  But no ordinary label.


I chose a coordinating pattern paper, cut a decorative label shape from white cardstock and added one of the colored flowers with 3 pearls.  So classy!

Even though the card was time consuming, I felt joy knowing the recipient would appreciate the beautiful attention to detail.
