Global Design Project GDP#001 Gorgeous Colour Challenge for a Wedding

I'm so excited about this new blog as they are all amazing designers and some of the team members are among my favourite card makers and designers. It will be lovely to see what they all create each week.  To start things off they have gone with a colour scheme.


You can check out the Blog with all the team members Here

I have gone for another wedding card as the colours are so well suited.
There is a lot of clear embossing on the different papers - French Script (sadly retired - my first ever Stampin' Up! purchase and still a favourite!) on the So Saffron  DSP paper and Gorgeous Grunge on the Pink Pirouette.  I did some So Saffron aqua painting for the background and tissue flowers, and  I used the Pewter Embossing Powder (sadly retired) on the Expressions Naturals Elements quite easily. The leaf is of course from Summer Silhoettes and has a hit of glitter from a metallic gel pen which I love to use.




The Envelope Punch board makes such a snap of making a coordinated envelope, and it makes every card that little bit extra special.

Thanks for looking, 

Liz

  2. Liz - you are right. These colors are perfect for a wedding. I love the layout of your card - the focal flower is beautiful, but the sentiment is a scene-stealer. :) Thank you for playing along with this week's Global Design Project color challenge!

  5. Oh wow. I love all the details on this card. You left no element untouched, but it skillfully all works together. Obviously, I love the embossed greeting, but I absolutely love the clear embossing. Thank you so much for sharing with us at Global Design Project.

    1. Thanks Shawn, yes I think clear embossing is under-utilised! Must do more of it ; )
