Bridal Shower Gift Card Holder Card



Hello! So happy for the weekend, how about you?  I am posting this card that I am giving to a friend for her bridal shower.  She is getting married to a fabulous guy this month in the Dominican Republic!  Destination weddings are the thing...but I couldn't afford the trip!  So I made this card with a slight "tropical" feel by using "Cool Caribbean" SU ink.  The dress and sentiment are from a SU set.  I stamped with Whisper White Craft ink and embossed with white embossing powder.  I colored with reinker and a water pen.  I finished it with some Glossy Accents and white super fine sparkle.  The layers are embossed with different CB folders (Victoria and Swiss Dots).  I photographed a close up to try to capture the sparkle.  The other photos are from the inside of the card...I made the left side a gift card holder which will be filled tomorrow!  Thanks for stopping by today and I'll see you soon!

Hi Janna! What a gorgeous and elegant card you've created. Destination weddings are wonderful, I am sure it will be beautiful although she wished you were there! Wonderful interpretation of the sketch, I do believe that Cool Carribean has become SU's most popular color. ;) Thank you for joining us at DCRU this week, enjoy this Easter weekend!
