All Things Beach-y
I chose to make a pocket type card to include an insert with all the pertinent information. The flip flops were scaled down from a pattern found on the internet. The white "thong" pieces sparkle with the help of Stampin' Up!s Dazzling Diamonds and the pearl was just the right finishing touch. The Crumb Cake pocket was sponged with Sahara Sand and Crumb Cake inks to get a sandy beach effect. It was then lightly misted with a mixture of alcohol and Champagne Mist (now retired) for a subtle sparkle. The shell is from the By the Tide stamp set. A little Blushing Bride ink (how fitting, huh? lol) was sponged inside of the shell for a little definition.
The insert representing the "ocean" was sponged with Marina Mist and Soft Sky inks. Circle punches were used to make the "wedding rings" out of some metallic cardstock (non-SU). The "diamond" was from our silver Glimmer paper.
The invitations look so much better in real life - very sparkly. They were delivered to the future bride and groom earlier this week to be mailed. They both were very happy with the final product. Whew! lol
OK, must run to meet with a friend to help celebrate her last chemo treatment!!! Hope you have a great weekend and thank you for stopping by today!
