Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed & Something Blue
In keeping with the blog challenge theme for Digi Doodle Studios of Ribbons and Pearls I figure what would fit this theme better than a bride.
Thankfully DDS has this beautiful little image called Blushing Bride, that is simply beautiful. The long flowing hair and flowers of her bouquet set the whole thing off.
You will need the following to make this card.
Constructing the card.
Now that the image is all colored in, it is time to add in some details to the bouquet so we can begin construction of the card.
Glue down the roses and ribbon to the green base. Add in some pearls to the flower centers for additional details that will fit in with the Ribbons and Pearls theme of the monthly challenge.
No we will work our 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" cardstock. For this we will need a blending tool and Distress Ink - Spun Sugar.
Blend from the top down about 1/3 of the way down and repeat from the bottom up. This will leave you with a swatch of white right down the middle of your background.
Cut out one of each of the die cuts in white cardstock. Them layout how you think your card will fit onto your background piece. Once you have a general Idea you will being to glue down your items.
Glue your image down to the pink card stock so that it leaves a 1/8" boarder around your image. Then you will use Tacky glue to set this down on top of the embossed paper ensuring that it is also under part of the flourish. Once that is down, you will glue down the flourish onto the image.
We are almost done. We will now adhere down our Bouquet using tacky glue on top of the sheer ribbon in the lower right hand corner of your image (depicted below).
Next you will make a small bow using sheer ribbon. Using double sided tape you will place a small amount on the ribbon of the bouquet and attach the hand made bow on top (depicted below).
Now all that you have left to do is attach the sentiment. I made a small bride to be on a scallop circle die cut using my own hand lettering. I then added in some additional touches with Nuvo Crystal drops to the sentiment and the upper right hand side of my image. Once dried I set the whole thing on my card base.
Viola! You are finished.
I hope that this was fun and informative for you all. Please leave a comment.
