It’s time for another challenge from Pals Paper Arts! It’s a sketch this week, designed by the talented Nicole Watt. Because I needed an elegant wedding card, that’s what I opted to create! Of course, this pattern from the Something Borrowed Designer Series Paper Collection was talking to me: “Pick me, Ann…and add pearls!” Well, who am I to argue with paper when it speaks to me? So I picked it, and pearls I did add! But notice how restrained I was? I didn’t add a pearl at every point! I hope you enjoy today’s very quick and very easy card.
- Petite Pairs! Petite Pairs is one of the stamp sets which I forget to use. This time, however, it seemed perfect for today’s card. I dusted it off, inked it up in Soft Suede, and stamped away! Of course, I had to add a few pearls. Ah! The Power of the Pearl!
- Diamonds and Pearls! The Diamond Pattern from the Something Borrowed Designer Series Paper collection adds a sophisticated, classy touch, don’t you think. My birthstone is a diamond, and my given name, Margaret, is derived from the Greek word for pearl. So it just seems like it was written in the stars that I add pearls to the diamond images!
- Satin elegance! Whisper White Satin Ribbon forms the perfect elegant bow to finish up this card. For greater fullness, I created a double bow. I just use an old-fashioned cardboard bow maker. It’s so easy!
I hope you enjoyed today’s card. I was happy to be able to use a set that rarely ever sees the light of day. And it’s a shame really. Petite Pairs is a sweet little set. How about you? What is the one set you have in your collection that you never use, or you under-use? Won’t you let me know in your comment today? And remember, if you have any questions about the cards I make, or the techniques I use, I am only an email away! Until next time…
