I was inspired by a beautiful card my daughter received – made by my dear friend and partner in crime/stampin’/eatin’ Cheryl. I tweaked it a little for my hostess club last week:
- No Stamps!
- Very Vanilla, Pear Pizazz (ret) and Blushing Bride (ret) card stock
- Blushing Bride (ret) ink pad
- Big Shot with All Dressed Up Framelits
- Elegant Bouquet and Fancy Fan TIEF
- Very Vanilla 1/8 inch taffeta ribbon
- 5/8 inch flower trim
- Sponge daubers
- Stampin’ Dimensionals
I had some of the retired cardstock we used for Carol’s weddding and I haven’t quite let go of that color combination, so I chose to share it with the club. I told them there should have been the teeniest tiniest pearls to line that beautiful neckline, but they had all been used up on wedding favors 🙂 They’re my friends; they understood.
It just takes a few dabs of ink on those fabulous flower trim blossoms to get a little bit of color. This card has a lot of texture which gives it depth and complexity even though it is a very simple layout.
Are you interested in Hostess Club? 6 stampers commit to spend $25 a month for 6 months, and each person has a month as hostess – and earns the hostess benefits. I’m forming a new group – contact me if you would like more information.
Time to move on to a new color scheme. Thanks for indulging me 🙂
