Embossing Bliss

Greetings traveller. Welcome to the Crafters Guild. You’ll notice that we’ve decorated the Guild Hall with hundreds of white flowers in preparation for a marriage festival tonight. Shila, one of the villagers who runs the Ink ‘n Die store is being wed today and she wanted to have the celebration here, as we were her best customers. I was happy to oblige. Shila has always been good to the Crafters Guild, her inks keeping us from dying on numerous crafty quests.

As there was no image to colour, this card actually went together rather quickly (compared to most), which was good, because I had to get it done on short notice, one of the salesmen at the Wagon and Carriage stall needing it in a day's time. I started by cutting out the flowers in different sizes using the Art Philosophy cartridge. 
Before stacking them all together and attaching them with little black brads, I embossed them all using the trusty ‘ol Swiss Dots folder. I then chose some shiny white paper (ooooo shiny), and embossed it as well, leaving a strip in the middle unembossed for me to stamp the sentiment on. I used the Lawn Fawn “Sophie’s Sentiments” set for this task. I then added a black ribbon and bow and called it a day (for the front anyways).

On the inside, I used that white cut that was in my “bits box”, having cut it accidently too big when I was making this card. (You will also notice the similarity in design between the two). It always gives me +444 happiness exp points when I get to use stuff from my “bits box”. I cut it a black shadow and BLAM, glued it on the inside. I then stamped the sentiment using Lawn Fawn’s “Sophie’s Sentiments”. 

To keep it elegant, I simply embossed the envelope instead of stamping it with something, that wouldn’t really match the card.  

This card will toss its bouquet in the following challenges:

The wedding feast was a wonderful event, Shila looking beautiful in her flowing white gown. She presented us with a crate of her latest inks as a thank you for hosting the event. Having acquired a new crafty item, I was of course ecstatic and couldn’t wait to test out her new inks.
