Perfect Plum Wedding Shower

I’ve mentioned before that we have a lot of weddings to attend this summer/fall, and earlier I posted the wedding invitations I made for my daughters bff, Ashley.  See that post Here. Today’s card is the one I made for her shower.  Very different from her invitations.


About the card
1. I cased this card from a post by Connie Stewart at Simply Simple Stamping.  You can check out her post here.  I loved her original card, colors and layout but she was using it as a sympathy card.  I wanted something not so soft and to work for a Wedding shower, so I went a bit bolder on my colors and really like how it turned out.

2. Embossing makes all the difference.  I heat embossed the flowers in black so that they would pop when colored with markers.  Dry embossing for the background with Square Lattice give the needed texture.

3.  Another technique I learned from Connie is to use the same punch to create a layer but punching two of them and cutting each one in half.  One vertically and the other horizontally.  When the four pieces are layered behind the front they look like a one piece layer.

Hope you  liked it.  Thanks for stopping by the Owlery today.
