I recently received an invitation to an event at our local Molton Brown store in Oxford (which I went to and it was fantastic) and the invitation was the inspiration for today’s card. I truly get my inspiratoin from everywhere.
I lifted pretty much everything from the invitation. The colour scheme, the placement, all of it. What I really like about it, is that it shows that the Bottle stamps and dies can be used for really feminine projects as well as bold, masculine projects. I don’t think you could get a more feminine project that this.
Using a soft colour scheme with vellum, metallic thread and embossing, I am thrilled with how this turned out. I have used two slightly different colour schemes for the cardbase and mat, I like them both, which do you prefer, it would be great to hear from you.
I love our Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folders, they really do give extra dimension, and the Layered Leaves is one of my absolute favourites for any project that includes florals or leaves, such as this one. The nearest embossing folder to the original invitation is the Garden Trellis, but as I don’t have that one…….
Oh, and why do I think this is a pun? Because the invitation had pictures of Bubble Bath! I know, not great sense of humour, but it has already been a long week!
