New Two for the Paper Craft Crew

Welcome to another Summer's day in Melbourne :-) And happy Lent too! Today actually is more like Autumn than Summer outside but I am not complaining - so many people suffering through snow and freezing conditions and we are living comfortably in short sleeves every day  -  and the Veggie garden is flourishing too :-)

And being Wednesday it is also time for another sketch from The Paper Craft Crew and the Design Team have come up with a lovely variety of cards to inspire you so I hope you can take a moment to pop on over and be inspired.

Now I tend towards the Clean side so this was indeed a good challenge for me as at first I wondered what DSP to use.... But once I settled on a theme it all came together quite quickly. Love it when that happens - and "Love" it is!

 I have a good friend getting married in April :-)

So the DSP is the Irresistibly Yours available for Free as part of Saleabration. It is one that you can colour any way you like but I decided to leave it white here :-) And it is actually a slightly different white than the Whisper White card so the card base and label greeting is also the DSP - just the reverse side which is blank.
To create the gold doily I simply covered a paper one in Versamark ink and then gold embossing powder and heated it -  I used some tweezers to hold it and laid it against some scrap paper for the process and it worked really well. So I used the same process to colour the 3 Pearls too!

Card stock: Brushed Gold
Designer Series Paper: Irresistibly Yours
Inks: Versamark
Stamps: For The New Two
Accessories: Big Shot, Label Framelits, Paper Doilies, Gold EP, Satin Gold Ribbon, Vanilla Rosette Trim (retired), Basic Pearls

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can take a moment to pop over to the Paper Craft Crew  this week and be inspired by the many varied cards of the DT and I look forward to seeing what you create with this sketch.

Happy stamping until next time,
