Hello everyone and welcome to the Control Freaks April Blog Tour! if you're already taking the tour, you must have arrived here from Lisa Martz's fabulous blog. Weren't her flowers absolutely beautiful?
As you might know by know, our theme for April is floral projects, Mother's Day and Weddings! You've probably guess by the title of my blog post that mine is a wedding theme tonight using the fabulous Bride Specialty Designer Series Paper. I choose to use the striped pattern for these projects for a classic and tailored look!
My trio of projects includes a card (which could also be an invitation), a little pillow box favor and an embossed votive candle holder with vellum inserts.
For all three projects I've used the Together Forever Stamp set, Whisper White and Bashful Blue Cardstocks, 5/8" Bashful Satin Ribbon, the Scallop Trim Border Punch, Versamark ink and White Embossing Powder along with the Heat Tool. I also used several punches -- Scallop Circle, 1 3/4" and 1 1/4" Circles, the Large Oval and Scallop Oval. The colors could easily be changed out to fit any wedding theme.
None of these projects are complicated but promise to lend a simple and classic elegance to any wedding or formal occasion.
As you can see on the Votive Candle Holder, I colored in just a bit on the inside of the vellum after embossing to make the image just a little more interesting as the light shines through it. Click on the small image on the right to see what this little project looks like when lit in a darkened room. Just beautiful!
Well, I don't want to keep you too long because there are a lot of projects out there waiting for your inquisitive eyes! Have fun on the tour, everyone! Don't forget to let your friends know that they are invited as well!
