I needed to make a wedding card for someone and I found out their colors were very similar to some Stampin’ Up! colors so I decided to use them for the card. I wished I had saved the photo of their wedding but now I can’t find it but just know they were Calpyso Coral, Petal Pink with a touch of Coastal Cabana.
To make this card I first cut out two pieces using the Many Medallions die set. The first one was in Petal Pink and the second one in Coastal Cabana. I adhered the Petal Pink one to a Calypso Coral card base and then glued the tiny pieces of Coastal Cabana in the slots. First a disclaimer. Do not try this at home. Although I love how it turned out, it took a very, very long time to glue all those tiny pieces inside the medallion. They are all not the same size which made it a bit harder. My suggestion is to cut a piece of cardstock (I used Coastal Cabana) and adhere the large Petal Pink die cut over the top. Luckily it was done on a rainy day so I had lots of time.
I stamped the sentiment from Peaceful Moments using Coastal Cabana ink and cut it out using a Stitched Nested Labels Die. Then I punched out a piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock using the Everyday Label Die and adhered them together.
I did get a lovely thank you card from the happy couple who said they loved the card so all that work was definitely worth it.
This is beautiful, Susan. And what a lot of work! It’s obvious how much time you spent on it. Thanks for the inspiration and hints, because I just got this!!
Susan, this is a spectacular card. Love the colors, the layers, the detail. Don’t know if I’d go to all that trouble, but you did a beautiful job.
