Pearlized to Perfection

13 Comments

This particular card is a combination of three different challenges: Pals Paper Arts Pretty in Pearls Challenge, Clean & Simple FTL#106 and the Colour Throwdown #108. I thought I’d just try all three, not meaning to do them all together but I like how the end result happened!

The base for this card is Very Vanilla and I embossed it with the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder (LOVE THIS!). Then, I turned the sketch on it’s side and added a strip of So Saffron cardstock. I used the Scallop Trim border punch on the bottom and distressed the top.

Next, I added a strip of Elegant Soiree Designer Paper and in addition to adding a few flat pearls, I also added some Moonlight Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink to the designer paper for some extra pearl shine. I added a Kraft Taffeta (retired) bow to the top with a row of pearls.

Lastly, the sentiment. I first punched out a So Saffron Decorative Label and then I added a layer of Crumb Cake (punched with the Curly Label Punch). To top it off, I added a piece of Very Vanilla on which I stamped “Kind Thanks” from Thank you Kindly. I stamped this in Chocolate Chip. I added a couple of little pearls and dotted my Chocolate Chip marker around the outside.

Thanks for stopping by today!

  11. Just stumbled upon your blog. I adore it.
    Although craft making utilities are available in my city, they aren’t found with too much ease.
    While reading your blog, I was reminded of an excerpt from a book I love: ‘A Suitable Boy’.
    I posted it on my blog here: http://alicewandering.wordpress.com/2010/08/26/raksha-bandhan-celebrations-of-timeless-art-forms/
