Vintage Vanilla & Blushing Pink Bride All-Occasion Cards

These laser-cut cards were in the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog a few years back and I finally opened the package!

This first one was embellished with Blushing Bride DSP and pleated ribbon as well as some Venetian Lace Crochet Trim.  I don't think it could get any more feminine if it tried!  I had to cut the card apart and trim it down a bit, then I used the die-cut panel as a card front and popped it up with lots of dimensionals.  I think the shadow of the die cut on the DSP creates lovely depth to this card, don't you?



This set of cards had some with floral die-cut hearts, and others with a lacy die-cut edge.   



I put a DSP behind the border with a pattern of Pretty in Pink and Chocolate Chip showing through the lace.  Inside there's a pattern of pink glitter on an ivory background.  The pink satin ribbon is held together with Fast Fuse, giving the front a little more interest and covering the seam between the papers on the inside.  One piece of ribbon goes all the way around the front of the card, then a second smaller piece is folded in half and adhered to line up with one edge.

I think you could use these cards for feminine birthdays, weddings or valentines; what would you use them for?

These cards were created for the Feminine Anything Goes Watercooler Challenge.  Check out the other great submissions here.

Oh my! I have that package of beautiful laser-cuts, too, and have used one or two of the cards so far. I keep thinking that once I've used them, they're gone, which is one of the silliest reasons not to use something. I love what you've done with the laser-cuts. My favourite is the lovely heart simply because it is so intricate and perfect. Using it as a panel worked out perfectly. How pretty it is with the darker pink showing through and, of course, that pleated ribbon over the lace at the bottom. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

The struggle is real!! I watched a video on YouTube last week where the crafter was talking about wanting to use up all of this patterned paper... that she liked!! I just thought, but if you use it all, then you won't have any! I am such a DSP hoarder it just boggled my mind. :-D

What a treat when you find something in your stash that works so perfectly. These cards are utterly feminine and amazing. I really like the beautiful floral heart on the first card, but the layering on the second card is really a nice touch. Thanks so much for joining us for Fiona's Feminine Anything Goes WWC126 Challenge this week over at Watercooler Wednesday.

Great interpretation of the feminine theme! I don't remember seeing these laser-cut cards, but wish I had. Thanks for playing along with Watercooler Wednesday.
