Happily Ever After Card for a Bridal Shower



It is wedding season so I've been creating cards for Bridal Showers.    In anticipation of designing for brides, I ordered SSS's Floral Bliss stamp set and created three different cards.  I am entering this card in the Watercooler Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge .  I am especially happy with how this particular card turned out.  I love the slate cardstock behind the brightly colored flowers.

I stamped the image and some extra flowers and leaves so I could add dimension.  I colored  with Copic markers and then fussy cut everything. The bride's favorite color is blue so I wanted to use some pretty blue colors.    I like to use my teflon bone tool to smooth everything out after I am done cutting.  I arranged and then adhered with foam tape.  I love the sentiment, which I heat embossed.

Since the cardstock is dark, I glued a white insert to the inside so I could write my message.  My daughter is a Bridesmaid in her friend's wedding and we are hosting the shower together at our home so I wanted to make sure we had a special card.

Thanks for stopping by,

  1. What a gorgeous explosion of colours in your shower card, Karen. I love the very plain grey background which lets those flowers take centre stage and shine. This is a very special card which I'm sure your daughter's friend will treasure. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

  2. Karen this is such a beautiful card for a wedding event. I love the gray background for this floral arrangement and the colourful flowers. Your sentiment on the white background works really well too. Thanks so much for sharing with us at the Anything Goes Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
