Meant to Be

Pink really isn't my thing. My sister requested a "blush and rose gold" card she could use for a wedding.  So, this is what I designed:



I found that the Grapefruit Grove Foil paper (that I got for FREE as a Sale-a-bration item), looks like Rose gold in small doses. In larger pieces, the paper has a rainbowy flair to it. The camera shows this, but in person, you don't see it. I added Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to the back before I used the  Be Mine Stitched Framelits. This made those tiny little pieces not pop out like I wanted, so I used my paper piercing tool to push them. It was weird-they weren't attached, but just didn't leave the heart without my help. I also discovered, after this card was created, when I was prepping for class, that the heart I used to cut the lacey part, worked as a base IF I put both the Very Vanilla and the Grapefruit Grove foil through the Big Shot at the same time. The Very Vanilla heart was cut with an embossed impression so that the two pieces fit together well. 

For the background, I used a spritzer with water and sprayed the paper so it was soggy. I then added Blushing Bride Reinker ink with an Aquapainter. I found that the more playful I was, the cooler it looked. I added the stamped parts in Blushing Bride. I think the MEANT TO BE sentiment would be perfect for a wedding or a personal valentine. 

Note: If you buy the Meant to Be Bundle, you can choose the Grapefruit Grove/Lovely Lipstick Foil Paper for FREE! 



Happy Stamping!
