Belli Challenge #103 - Flocking or Flower Soft


Welcome to another Belli Challenge!  This week's challenge is to use Flower Soft or Flocking on your project.  I needed a wedding card for Tim's niece's wedding this past weekend so I used Flourishes Let Them Eat Cake set and topped my cake layers with Flower Soft!

The inspiration for my card came from the wedding invitation.  I tried to recreate the layout using leaf images from Flourishes Fine Herbs and Birds and Vines sets.  I used Adirondack Cranberry and Butterscotch die inks for all of the images on the card base and the envelope and then used Versamark and Powder Keg Renaissance and Gold Detail Fine Embossing Powder for the cake and its stand.

I used watercolor paper for my card base and the image panel and used a burgundy marker to draw the frame around the inside of the Nestabilities die for my main panel, which is popped up on foam tape.  The ribbon was ivory silk that I colored with a Copic marker to match the rest of the card.

For the inside, I used a sentiment from Papertrey Ink's Big and Bold Wishes set.  The back of the envelope was covered with more images from the Birds and Vines set. 

If you would like to play along with our Flocking/Flower Soft challenge, please head over to the Creative Belli blog for details and to see the great cards the rest of the design team has made!

Thanks for stopping by!

Neat idea to use the FS on the cake. Loving the Cranberry and Butterscotch stamped images --- wonderful combo and I'm sure the bride will notice the details inspired from the invite.
