Wedding card with lots of white and a little touch of pink and green


Sometimes things take a totally different direction. For this card I had planned to make it girly card, using paper with green spots and lots of die cut dresses. But I got distracted....
I started out making the card base using Spellbinder dies. Seeing my new stamp with text laying on the table, I wondered how it would look embossed with white embossing powder on white background. So I just wanted to check it out there and then. I liked how it turned out, so I cut it to size. Seeing all my white pearls I thought they would make a nice edge around the embossed paper. Pearls in place, but then I didn't feel my original plan would work with this new design  So I used one of the die cut dresses I had prepared (MB dies). Next I needed something masculine. Found a tutorial in a magazine on how to fold a shirt. Folded it and sprayed it with pearl Glimmer Mist. Needed something to place the dress and shirt onto, so I used my MB heart dies. It also got a round of glimmer mist. For the sentiment I used a banner stamp from Kaisercraft, also heat embossed with white, and I added a rub on sentiment to it. I admit there's not much pink and green on this card, but the dress has both colors. I also added pink metallic rub-on to the edges of the card base, but I was gentle with the amount, so it doesn't show in the picture, but I think it looks nice in real life.


This card is for these challenges:
1) Inkspirational - #32 Colors
2) Tuesday Throwdown - #159 Don't be square
3) Crafty Boots - Die Cuts
4) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
