Anyway, when you receive a wedding card you obviously need an acceptance card to respond, right? So, that is what today's share is. Unfortunately the stamp is not Stampin' Up! but its similar to a stamp that Stampin' Up! does carry and one which is on my wish list...as are many others. Everything else is Stampin' Up! though!
I usually try and make a acceptance card and wedding card that matches the colour theme of the wedding. Their card was ivory with a teal ribbon in a bow. Sadly Stampin' Up! no longer has a teal colour in their collection...they so need to!!
Stamp: Starburst Lace - Hero Arts (I really would have loved to use Stampin' Up!'s Medallion background stamp)
Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Old Olive
Pastels: Not Quite Navy, Wild Wasabi, More Mustard, Old Olive
Ink: Versa Mark
Punches: Modern Label, Corner Rounder
Accessories: Old Olive Button, Whisper White Satin Ribbon, Linen Thread
Extras: Cotton wool balls, Glue Dot, Dimensionals, White Gel Pen
As Stampin' Up doesn't have teal in their collection and their turquoise was just too bright I decided that stamping the "medallion" stamp in versamark and then adding poppin' pastels to the image I would be able to blend the pastels and create my own teal(ish) shades. I added a button with s bit of linen thread through it to finish off the centre. Down the side I added some satin ribbon. Finally I hand wrote the sentiment and adhered it to the bottom right hand corner.
Please let me know what you think, and leave a comment!
Until next time,
