My apologies for missing last month, life got in the way. This month at House Of Cards we would like to see a shaped card and we have our usual colour swatch too.
For the main image I have used one of Chocolate Baroque's new stamps featuring a heart filled with script, overlapped with a gorgeous flower. This was embossed with gold powder. It was then die cut with a circle shape.
I wanted to colour the card outside of the circle, so I stamped and cut out the heart on masking sheet, covered the image and used Distress Ink to add a pale pink hint of colour.
With the same pale pink Distress Ink and a stencil I added a starburst to the inside of the card. The easel needs something to hold it up , so a die cut panel with gold congratulations and coloured pink was mounted on foam pads across the starburst.
To finish off I used my photo package to create a small card with the names of the bride and groom, printed in black with a pink shadow. Die cut circular, then mounted on a small scalloped circle to match the the image layer and added to the card on foam pads. I hope the happy couple will like their personalised card, just wish I knew what the wedding colours are going to be but never mind, it's the thought that counts.
Please come and join us at the House Of Cards with your shaped cards, we would love to see what you make, the DT have lots of great inspiration for you on our challenge blog.
