When I first saw the new Faceted Gems I instantly thought of sparkly flowers. After I set a gem in the center and surrounded it with rhinestones I was over the moon. [happy chair dance ensued!!!] This Flourish Thinlits Faceted Gems Flowers wedding card certainly covers the sparkle factor.
I felt the sparkly flowers needed a design that was clean and simple but strong. So I thought a wedding card would be the perfect fit. What do you think?
BASE: I started with a Whisper White base. Then I layered it with Whisper White backed with triangles of Silver Foil at opposite corners. I think the silver triangles give a modern feel against the “flourish” flowers. AND I had to pop it with Dimensionals to add “more height”. [smile]
FACETED GEMS FLOURISH: I love the clean and simple look of the “Flourish” from the Flourish Thinlits Die Set cut from Silver Foil. It’s so swirly. [giggle] The flowers were started with a 3/4″ Silver Foil Circle, next a faceted gem placed in the center, then surrounded with rhinestones. I know……cool!
SENTIMENT: When I was perusing my stamps for a “wedding” sentiment I found this sweet one in the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set. It felt perfect for a wedding card and fit just right on the 3/8″ banner. To add another layer of sparkle I silver embossed the sentiment and popped with Dimensionals to add just a bit “more height”.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed today’s sparkly flourish thinlits faceted gems flowers wedding card. Woo……that was a mouthful. Lol!
