Today I thought I would continue the theme of not red and white ( can you call that a theme) and try for something delicate and pretty!
Now I am often being told that a particular card would look lovely in pastels so, although this is not strictly pastel, I thought id have a go at being pretty!
This card started with an A4 piece of cream cardstock folded in half. I added a piece of First Edition floral pavilion paper which I mounted onto pink card. I added, with foam tape, a larger double mat of cram and pink behind it, before attaching to the card.
A strip of beautiful woven green ribbon is tucked in between the layers to run along the front with all the elements based on top of this 'stripe'. Firstly a die cut, in the same cream cardstock, from Spellbinders A2 filigree delight decorated by stick on pearls. The centre panel is cut with the centre die form the set on which I mounted a piece of the same card, cut by drawing round the inside of the oval die and hand cut, which I edged in pink chalk ink.
The sentiment is stamped onto one a piece cut with the tag section of the filigree die set, with more pearls. The leaves are cut with Spellbinders Foliage which I die cut and stencilled through the die and some random paper roses I found in my stash.
Both sentiments used are from Creative expressions although I can't remember which set it is.
I hope you find this pretty and good relief from all the strident red and white of the last few days
