Pastels and Pearls Wedding Card

Pastels and Pearls Wedding Card for Frilly and Funkie Challenge

Hello, Friends!  It’s time for a brand new challenge on the Frilly and Funkie blog.  This time, Nancy is our host and the challenge theme is Pastels and Pearls.  Nancy would like us to  create a vintage or shabby chic project that features a pastel color palette and includes pearls.   It was a short leap from this challenge theme to this pastels and pearls wedding card!

Once again, I pulled out my Graphic 45 A Ladies’ Diary papers and spent a lovely morning making this shabby chic pastels and pearls wedding card.

This 5″ x 7″ side fold card is pretty straightforward.  Lots of layers, pretty pastel papers, fussy cutting, matted images, and just a touch of pearls.  The focal image is actually one I’d saved from the old Graphic 45 A Place in Time June paper.  I love this sweet image of a bride being attended by children.

I used this antique silver optical lens as a picture frame.  It was painted with Antique Linen Distress Paint, and sprinkled with glitter while the paint was still wet.  I added one perfect little half back pearl to the frame.  Inside the frame, I scattered clear micro beads.  It’s hard to see in the photo, but in real life, it is so pretty.

    This is such a vintage beauty with so many wonderful details everywhere I look. Love the sentiments on the inside and all the little pockets holding tags and post cards. I just drool when you create with Graphic 45 because you make the papers shine.
    Hugs!

    Nothing outrageous this time? I beg to differ! That optical lens used as a frame is genius and even more so with the addition of the clear microbeads! This card is a gift in itself. Kathy you really know how to work those gorgeous papers, and everything is so perfectly placed. I’m always so impressed how you make the pockets and extras on the inside, too! Looks like you had some fun with your pearls and pastels! Big hugs!
