Bridal Shower Card by ~ Tracey Sabella

It's Tracey here to share a card I created for a dear friend's bridal shower featuring lot's of Donna's girlie grunge goodies!!

Tips and Techniques
Donna's Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Keys are so fun to work with. There are so many techniques that work with them. I heat embossed them with Jasmine Mix'd Media Embossing Powder for texture, then rubbed them with Donna's Gold Pigment Powder from Scrapbooking Adhesives by 3L. This shimmery powder give them a grungy metallic effect. Finally the card is splattered with white gesso adding even more texture. 

My focal flowers are hand crafted using Donna's products and Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms dies. A tutorial for my Whispy Burlap Flower using Donna's Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Texture Ribbons (Burlap) can be found HERE.

Here's a side view. I've cut a piece of Donna's Lace Ribbons from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L down the middle and tucked it into one of the stitched layers. 

Here's a shot of the card top. I've stenciled textured butterflies at the top and used Mix'd Media Inx to color Donna's organza Texture Ribbon. I cut the ribbon into a thinner strip, heat embossed to crinkle. Finally I dabbed both the ribbon and the berry sprigs with Clearsnap Glue Gloss and sprinkled with Donna's Clearsnap Twinkle Dust Glitter.

Thanks for stopping by!
