My husband's cousin (so...my cousin-in-law?) asked me to make her some cards. She's getting married in August and wants to send a card to each of her ring bearers and flower girls, as well as one for her sister-in-law who will be doing the bridal party's make up.
Here's what I created for the little girls (5 & 3):
That cute flower is just the 1 3/4" scallop circle punch. I punched out two of them and then used my bone folder to break down the fibres and carefully peeled the two layers apart. The layers were brushed against a Melon Mambo ink pad to give some definition. I then roughed them up a bit by crumpling. I secured all 4 layers together with a mini brad and spritzed the flower with Stampin' Mist (stamp cleaner) to make it crunchy. There's a small soda pop top (flattened) hiding in the center with a butterfly from Collage Curios and basic rhinestone glamming it a bit.
The letters here are done the same way, but I went for a different approach for the rest of the card. Because of having 5 letters to work with, this was the only arrangement I could come up with that would fit on a standard size card. I stamped the Sweet Floral background stamp in Pink Pirouette to add some interest to the whisper white panel. Otherwise it was just too stark. That cute ribbon flower was made a while back, but I wanted to use it for a 3D element and I liked how the yellow really popped! It's made using satin ribbon (retired) and a heat tool. It's finished off with an antique brad.
Wow! A lot of words. Did you make it through all that, or just look at the photos? That's ok. I probably would've skipped the words too ;)
Enjoy and remember to check back to see the other boy card!!
