Post 151: Bridal Congratulations Card

Hi friends :)

I'd like to share a CAS bridal congratulations card today :) It is 5.75 inches by 4.5 inches in size (slightly bigger than an A2 card). The color scheme is maroon and cream. I chose the color maroon because it is considered a bridal colour in India. I have dressed up the bride but still kept it simple with lots of open space to call it CAS.

Synopsis of the Process:

First I die cut the cream colored cardstock with the rectangle wonky stitched die, then with the butterfly gown die, did die cutting. Then used the negative of the die cut and stuck it down onto the cardbase. Added a few of the little butterflies from the die onto the silhouette, to dress her up. Then stamped the sentiment and flourishes in ruby red ink (performed some stamp surgery and cut up the sentiment to yield the sentiment + flourish). Then punched out a few flowers and curled them up for dimension, added a little pearl in the middle and adhered these to the card. In the end, added a pearl necklace on the bride with half pearls. 

List of Supplies:

1. Lawn Fawn Scripty Sayings Stamp
2. Cutplorations- Double Running Stitching Rectangle Die
3. Gina Marie Designs Butterfly Girl Gown Die
4. Altenew Ruby Red Dye Ink
5. Small Flower punch
6. Half pearls
7. Tombow Mono Multi Glue
8. Light cream and maroon cardstock 250 gsm

Here are a couple of pictures of the card:

Butterfly Challenge #77- I have added the color jasmine with a light creamish yellow on the card and there are small little butterflies on the silhouette also I have used the negative of the die cut so it kind of looks like faux inlaid die cutting)
