The Pals Paper Arts blog post this week challenges us all to create a clean and simple card using pearls! Visit their blog here for more ideas from other great card makers.
I resisted using the exact colors in the picture of Audrey Hepburn on their challenge page and went with the versatile Confetti White card stock and a touch of Marina Mist. This color makes a great background for those gorgeous pearl centers!
The dimension of the Textured Impressions Embossing Folder – Perfect Polka Dots adds the perfect touch to this card base. It replicates the subtle idea of pearls without taking away from the true pearl embellishments.
The flowers are die cut from my Sizzix Bigz die and then gently curved using the Bone Folder. It’s very simple to adhere them to the card front with SNAIL Adhesive. I used a double layer of Stampin’ Dimensionals on the center flower to elevate it above the others.
I punched out three flower shapes from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and added the 5mm pearls from the Basic Pearls embellishments.
A touch of Marina Mist 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon sets off the simple sentiment from the retired stamp set Whimsical Words. I again added Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop up the sentiment.
I used the sentiment Love begins in a MOMENT, grows over TIME, and lasts an ETERNITY for the inside of the card. It is from the Occasional Quotes stamp set.
