I absolutely ADORE this image from Whiff of Joy, and I love to do it up in pinks. I was invited to a wedding, which I cannot attend, and was deciding what I wanted to do for a card. My intention was to make a few different ones and pick the most appropriate, but I decided to stick with this first card because I was quite pleased with how it turned out.
Its not a typical wedding image, but since I wont be there to wish them congratulation in person, I thought it was appropriate that i send my wedding kisses in the wind - just like Melinda!
The image is colored with Copic markers.... a skill I am constantly trying to perfect. I used a swirly embossing folder through my cuttlebug for the first layer. Have I mentioned how much I love embossing folders?! I just need to buy more of them since I only have a few! Melinda's wings are finished with some iridecent stickles.
I layered Melinda on some patterened paper (I *think* its basic grey), another layer of white, and more cardstock. I love this layered look. The whole thing was mounted on pop dots - another thing I LOVE LOVE LOVE! Finished off with some pink satin ribbon, and layered two giant Prima flowers, accented with a rhinestone centre.
I have only just begun to start decorating the insides of my cards, but since my gift will be monetary, I added a little pocket on the inside with patterned paper. I computer printed the message on vellum paper, and attached it to a white base with some pink square rhinestone brads and adhered to the inside of the card.
Some say that a message typed is not as personal.... but if you've seen my writing, you'd know why I chose to type it out!
I hope they like this card. I was quite pleased with it!
Thanks for stopping by!
