Eek! It's my first blog post. Ever. And I am so glad you're here!
I had already pieced together a white on white background using the Tim Holtz/Sizzix Simple Plaid die. I'd laid it to the side because I wasn't sure how to use it yet. I also had many, many foiled leftovers from making cards with the PinkFresh Studio Simplest Gestures hot foil plate.
On a whim, I foiled one of the leftovers. And then I stood back and thought Well, I'll never use that. I tossed it into the Someday Card Parts Pile, and it happened to land on top of the white plaid background.
<insert dramatic heavenly choir music>
Even laying haphazardly in the Someday pile, it was stunning.
I layered up a few of the flower die cuts for dimension and added those to the top left corner of the card. For the sentiment, I cut the Love sentiment from Hero Arts from DIY foiled paper and added a foiled "celebrate" from the Spellbinders More Sentiments Glimmer set. Finally, I added a few Gina K Clear Dew Drops.
To personalize the envelope, I stamped and (double) heat embossed the couple's names using the Concord & 9th Sophisticated Script set. Side Note: If you love the look of calligraphy but don't have the skills, THIS set will save your life!
I blended on Gina K inks in Sea Glass and Ocean Mist, and maybe Blue Lagoon (the wedding color) -- heavier in the center and fading out to nothingness -- and then splattered on some seriously ancient Apple Barrel gold acrylic paint.
On the inside, I added a gold foiled die cut, which was an exclusive product from Scrapbook & Cards Today's September 2022 Crop & Create Delivered Cardmaking event.
I hope this has inspired you to dig into your own Someday pile and see what's worth a second look!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
