I made this birthday card for a dear friend. It is inspired by Blueberry and Chocolate. I matted a Cream and Sky Blue based card 2/3 of the way down a C5 Chocolate Chip card and trimmed it off with a strip of Sky Blue ribbon with Chocolate Brown dots. I then stamped a Blueberry backgound basque onto Sky Blue card and glittered it with Sky Blue Fairy dust embossing powder then added a Blueberry Bow at the bustline. At the baseline of the basque I added Sky Blue Feathers and around the border of the bustline and baseline of the basque I added Sky Blue Pearl dots. The basque was then mounted onto the card at an angle with the feathers overlapping onto my Chocolate Chip card creating a contrast. A bevelled edge frame in Chocolate Chip was then stamped onto a piece of Cream and Sky Blue card and a message in Chocolate Chip then stamped in the centre of the frame. I then cut out the frame and bevelled the edge of sentiment card to match the frame of the stamp. The sentiment card was then layered onto Chocolate Chip card which was also bevelled at the edges. I then mounted this plaque onto my main card angling it to match the angle of my basque.
This was designed with sending loving wishes to a Special One. I mounted Red Satin Card onto a White Hammerd card I then stamped a floral worded background in black onto a white background. I strimmed off 1/4" off the left hand side of the card spaced the two pieces about 1cm apart and then layered them onto my Red Satin Card. I then glittered aspects of the leave and roses on the stamped imaged. The 1cm space between the two pieces of stamped card was then filled with a glitter glue pen and then glittered for an extra shimmery effect. I them added another layer of Red Satin Card 3 x 4" at an ofset angle half way down my stamped image. I stamped in Love Red the phrase "To You From Me. A Love Red Rose bud was then enveloped into a 1/2" wide satin ribbon which I then mounted onto the 3x4" Red card and "hey presto". Here you have it.
This is one of the designs I was drawn to when I thought of the Chocolate Candy Stripe design. It is simply Baby Blue and Chocolate Candy Striped Card mounted onto Chocolate Chip Brown Square Card along 3/3 of the card. The edge of the Candy Striped card is then overlaid with Baby Blue Satin Ribbon. The message is stamped using Chocolate Chip Shade onto Bashful Blue Card. This is then cut and matted onto Chocolate Chip colour card. This plaque is then centrally mounted onto the square invitation.
This design was inspired by the flairs on the papers I used. I mounted Chocolate Brown Star Speckled Embossed card 3/4 of the way down a square cut Bashful Blue Card. I then overlayed a 1/2" strip of Chocolate Brown Satin ribbon at the point where the Star Speckled Embossed card met the Bashful Blue. I then matted Sky Blue Flair on Ivory card onto a Chocolate Brown card leaving a 3cm border of Brown card. The wording Wedding Invitation was then stamped onto the Sky Blue Flare on Ivory card - using Chocolate Chip Ink Block. This plaque was then mounted over the satin ribbon, offset at an angle.
This is the design I used for the menus. To make this as unique as I wanted I designed this as a Gate Fold Card and laid this out in cover to cover order with Appetiser on the inside of the Left Gate Panel, The Entree's on the Middle Panel and the Desserts on the Right Gate Panel. Everyone who saw this thought it an unusual way to lay out a menu.
