I’ve been really busy with a few things recently and it feels like forever since I posted anything! This month part of the challenge on the Hero Arts blog is to make something to do with weddings. So I decided to make a wedding card.
Stamps (Hero Arts) – Warmest Wedding Wishes & Lace Background
On the upper part of the background I embossed the Lace Background in white on ivory pearlescent card. The sentiment is embossed in gold. For the flower I wanted to use items that could possibly make up a wedding dress – taffeta, tulle and pearls.
To make the flower, I cut six varying sized circles out of taffeta and another six of out tulle. I wanted a bit of frayed look on the flower, so even though I ironed the fabric before cutting out the circles, I ended up scruching them up and rolling them around between my hands to get a more distressed look. After stacking the circles, I stitched them together with a couple of stitches in the middle and added some pearls. The ribbon is recycled off a box of chocolates (the things I eat for craft supplies, lol) and I added some Lace Ribbon from Hero Arts.
I really enjoyed making the card, and the excuse to play with fabric, now all I need is a wedding to go to! Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!
