Wedding Card with Basket Chipboard Embellishment Shape
June 26, 2020
Tami here with another project featuring Clear Scraps and our cross promo company this month —-TapeRunner.
June is “the” month for weddings, and I have a perfect card for the occasion.
Earlier this month, I did a tag with a foil technique that utilized the TapeRunner. While planning out this card, I wondered if the TapeRunner would be an easy way to create a glitter background for the Chipboard Basket that I wanted to use. I tried it out an a scrap piece of cardstock and it worked beautifully!
If you’d like to see, or review the steps to create a glitter background for the chipboard piece, please check out this post: FOIL TECHNIQUE—- the steps are the same, except that instead of applying foil over the adhesive, you apply glitter.
I painted the basket white and outlined it with a gold glitter gel pen. My card base was white cardstock and the mat was a piece of cream toned printed paper.
I also used the TapeRunner to adhere all the pieces of the card together...
I used off white paper flowers to fill the basket, and I used the TapeRunner to adhere them as well...
I wrote the sentiment on a scrap of white cardstock using the gold gel pen and also used the pen to add centers to the flowers and to outline the edge along the printed paper.
A white and gold twine bow was the finishing touch. I love the classic look of white and ivory for weddings; there is something romantic with a touch of vintage when those colors are used together.
