Inspired by Pinterest

 I am taking an idea from Ardyth-Percy-robb to make a card inspired by a photo on her Pinterest board.


This was a wedding invitation for my niece and I made 35 of them in 24 hours!!! That was quite a feat and the whole family pitched in!

I made the flowers by punching scalloped circles from red and pink vellum and layering them. I also crumpled them for texture.
I held them together with black brads from Recollections.
The background was using my Cuttlebug embossing folder, the sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp "Tilted Banner stamp and die set". the dragon flies were punched from vellum too.

I had so much fun making this card and it was much appreciated by all who received it.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a good evening!


  1. OOH! I pinned that cake too - I love what you did with the inspiration! The vibrant flowers against that embossed background - amazing! Thanks for the shout-out!

    1. Thanks so much Ardyth! My niece got married in Kitchener last July and the cards were a huge hit!

  2. You have brought Spring to us with this set of gorgeous invitations. The dry embossing is simply superb! Your niece is going to really love them and cherish them! So glad that you join the fun over Virginia’s View “All Things Embossed” Challenge!

    1. Thanks Virginia! We were in Canada last july for the wedding and the cards were a huge hit!
