Today’s card was designed for the Global Design Project challenge. It’s sparkly, but soft and feminine at the same time. And I just had to include my latest fave technique as an element on my card. If you don’t know what the embossed lace technique is, have a look at my previous post here.
Here’s the Global Design Project sketch that inspired my card:
Whisper White and Perfect Plum were the dominant colours used for this card. These go beautifully with the silver highlights provided by the embossing and the 1/8″ silver ribbon. The focal image – the beautiful flower spray from the Awesomely Artistic Stamp Set – was stamped in Smoky Slate and watercoloured using Perfect Plum and Wisteria Wonder for the flowers, Always Artichoke and Wild Wasabi for the leaves and Smoky Slate for the background. I didn’t think this card needed a “loud” sentiment, so the “happy birthday” from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments Stamp Set was perfect repeated across the bottom of the lace.
Here’s a close up of the card front showing the gorgeous silver embossed lace. I used the Sahara Sand Lace Trim to get this effect. Some Dazzling Diamonds in the centre of the flowers tied the image in with the rest of the card.
The flower spray was used inside the card as well to finish it off.
Thank you to the design team for organising the challenge, and thank you for stopping by. I’d love to see your take on it, so leave me a comment with a link to your project.
