Bride card
Hi Stampers :

Happy Monday Friends !

Here is  the card I made  for Samantha's wedding shower  this past Saturday . I have made a  few of  these over the yrs  & Every time I make one I love  it .

 It seems  it  gets easier  every time~  well at  least this  time, cause I used the  1 3/4" Scallop  circle punch #119854  for her  flower bouquet ( instead of Cutting it out by hand ).Then used the 1/16th handheld punch # 101227  to punch tiny holes into each of  the scallops .

  The heart  for her bust line  I used the Scallop Heart of Hearts  embosslit # 117332. ( I just had  to trim the  sides  of her upper body down a wee bit to have it  fit  better.)

Sam's wedding colors are  Chocolate and Teal  But  since we no longer have a "Teal " colored card stock …I used Marina Mist#119682  and I used the Early Espresso card  stock  #119686  LOVE IT!

I must admit I  really  tried  to use the Blushing Bride card stock  for  the Brides skin tone  BUT  It was  way  to pink especially  next  to the  Espresso  so I pulled out  the retired  Blush Blossom card stock  ( I really really wish  SU!  would bring back  that  card stock color   Boo Hoo)

For the  flowers  I used the Itty Bitty  Shapes Punch pack # 118309.

I used the Basic Pearls#119247  for her Neckless  and the  greeting  on the front  is  from the Teeny Tiny  Wishes stamp set # 115370.

Then to add some shimmer I sprayed  it  with the  Champagne Mist # 116806  shimmer paint  with Rubbing Alcohol . 

You can view  the  one I made for my Cousin Sarahs Bridal Shower  in  2007 and  you  can also get  the  template  for this bride  from my Friend Jan  HERE

Thanks  Jan!

Until later.. Happy Stampin!
