A quick bridal shower card

I made this card yesterday afternoon for a bridal shower. The bride had picked peacock feathers for a sort of color theme for her wedding stuff. I thought that Enchanted Evening would be a great match. The bride exclaimed that it matched her invitations; so it was a score!

I was concerned that the PTI twill would not be "formal" enough for the mood of the card, but the rich color & its slight sheen made it work well.

It's very fun when your handmade card is well-received - the bride asked if I made it & that she was trying to figure out how I did it. Gratifying, for sure.

Thanks for looking!

Supplies: PTI ink, stamp, cardstock & twill tape; Cuttlebug embossing folder, Nesties Labels 4

  2. So gratifying when your handwork is well received. I think Enchanted Evening works so well for an elegant card. Couple that with an embossing folder and you've got a great classic combo.
