Create with Connie and Mary Challenge – Blossom Party Die

Since we've been celebrating my son's wedding all summer, I have had wedding on my mind a lot.  The last and final wedding reception will be held here in mid August.  And yes, I'm busy planning away.  Luckily it is very casual and only about 50-60 people are expected.  But…seems like it is one more thing on my list this summer!  lol!

 

Mary found this darling wedding cake and we knew we needed to use it as our inspiration for this week's Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  With all the flower stamps and dies on the market, we are positive you'll find some inspiration, too!  After you create your card, link it over on Create with Connie and Mary back to your blog or gallery.  Make sure to use the word CCMC109 so we can find your entry!

 

Here is what I did with the inspiration from the cake!  I started with a base card of Whisper White, then added a layer of Pacific Point.  I added another layer of Whisper White that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder.

 

The flowers are from a die in Stampin' Up!'s main catalog called Blossom Party!  I overlooked this die for a long time, but recently purchased it and am having LOTS of fun with it!  I cut out 5 of them out of more Whisper White cardstock and then cut the centers with the die in Pacific Point and one in Daffodit Delight…don't you like that little POP of a different color?  The yellow center flower is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I wrapped some White Stripe Organdy Ribbon around the card and tied.  I needed a greeting, so I picked up Teeny Tiny Wishes and stamped in in Pacific Point on Whisper White, then punched with the Curly Label Punch.

 

I liked this card so well, I changed up the colors and made one similar for my second Control Freaks Convention Swap…I'll post that one tomorrow!

 

Have a great day and remember to check out what the rest of the Thursday Challenge Designers did over on Create with Connie and Mary!  Some FABULOUS cards this week!
