Stripes for Just Add Ink and a CASE for GDP#040 - Something old and something new, nothing borrowed but something blue

While this card is made with not all Stampin' Up! products it is a blend of old and new, nothing borrowed but something blue.
Next weekend is the Handmade Expo Markets here in Rockhampton and I always like to have a stash of wedding cards. This is one which I think fits the bill for both these challenges.

The GDP challenge #040 is to CASE  the Designer and using Shawn de Oliveira's card I have reversed the layout to have the long strip and ribbon accent on the left.


I am really glad I purchased the new Falling Flowers and May Flowers bundle. The stamped images are crisp and clear and the framelits are magic.

I have heat embossed in white both the leaves and berries onto Naturals White cardstock (wish they'd bring this back), and also one onto some pale DSP which I had left over. Then I coloured the berries with my blender pen using Mint Macaron. The die cut leaves are from the same set of framelits and I used some shimmer white paper which I had watercoloured for another project.  - don't you get a sense of satisfaction from using up scraps and leftovers - handy for those of us who struggle to throw anything away... I know I'm not alone here!!
The white accents are stamping up as is the seam binding and the scalloped thinlits die (sadly retired), and the Wedding Wishes is from the Rose Wonder set which has the most gorgeous fonts and sentiments - and framelits to match for a bonus.
As always I make a matching envelope and this is retired DSP from Venetian Romance - somehow apt for a wedding card don't you think?

I have made a few other cards using the Falling flowers and May flowers sets which are posted this week on this blog if you would like a few more ideas on how to use this set.


Thanks for looking,

  Liz
