Beautifully Baroque Wedding Card

Beautifully Baroque Wedding Card 002 Main L

I needed an elegant wedding card this week for a family member.  The new Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder was just perfect for such an occasion.  Paired with our rich Elegant Eggplant – the bride’s color, and our gorgeous Shimmery White card stock, this card definitely hits the mark. 

Creative Tips –

  • I created a beautiful shimmery Baroque paper using the Bisque Pottery Technique and the Illuminate Glimmer Watermark Ink Pad.Beautifully Baroque Wedding Card 002 CU
  • Use the brayer to color the top portion of your Embossing Folder with the Illuminate Pad, place your Elegant Eggplant cardstock on the lower piece of the folder, close and emboss.  The result is a gorgeous shimmery result that looks like velvet. 
  • To pair the rich embossed piece, I used our Shimmery White card stock.  It’s a wedding after all!
  • The greeting is embossed in Silver and I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels at the top for some added elegant finishing touches.Beautifully Baroque Wedding Card 002 Bow
  • I normally don’t do bows – they’re big and bulky, but with this being a wedding card, my go to knot isn’t going to cut it – don’t think I didn’t try…lol!  It would be cute, no – tying the knot?  Michael would have questioned it, so I went with the bow.  To get it exactly where I wanted it, I attached a piece of Ribbon first, anchored my cardstock onto the card and then used a separate piece to tie the knot.  You can also completely tie it separately and attach it with a Glue Dot.  That didn’t work for me this time, so I tied it.Beautifully Baroque Wedding Card 002 Side

The end result is a gorgeous rich textured card.  This card is 5”x7”, and since we’re sending a check along as we can’t attend this one, I wanted to send a special card.  I’m actually quite sad we can’t go to this one. Sad smile
