Bridal Shower

     Friday- equals- QKR Stampede - equals - New challenge and New Theme.   Our theme is "Brides" and I did a card for a bridal shower using Digi 6201 "Heart Box Angel" and Digi 17004 "Stew of Life."  June is a traditional month for weddings!


     I tried once again to do a White-on-White card but ended up feeling that a bit of color was necessary to differentiate the layers.  I used plain white CS, glittered CS, metallic white CS, and a very pale, pastel-pink CS.  The pink directly behind the image is dp but in the photo it looks more 'rust' than pink.  All those die cuts are done with dies from a set by Spellbinders.  Each layer is also embossed.

     The sentiment is printed, framed, and hand cut, then adhered along the edge of the image.  The two little pink bits are scraps from a different die cut that were left on the desk so I used them instead of throwing them away.  Because this card is 5.5 x 6.75, a completely non-standard size, I made the envelope for it from a 12 x 12 piece of scrapbooking paper with the design turned inside.  Unfortunately, I didn't photograph the envelope before sending this on its way.

     I hope we'll see you playing along with us this week.  Remember, you don't have to use an image from QKR but if you do, your card will be placed in a separate drawing just for those who used QKR Stampede digis and that will increase your chances of winning by a huge amount.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

  7. What a charming and heartwarming card! I love how you did the layers and I agree that the bit of subtle color you added was a great way to differentiate the layers. I also thought it was such a nice touch to add some shimmer and shine to the halo and wings! So cute and no doubt a treasured card for whomever ends up receiving it! Thank you for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

  8. I've tried doing white on white for a card and always end up adding some colour around the edges at the very least. Why does Sue Wilson make it look so easy?
    Thank you for entering my Monochrome challenge at CCM.
