Expressions in Ink

 June is a popular month for weddings & with our area finally coming out of a months long lockdown we are all looking forward to some happy celebrations with friends & family. Since June is such a popular wedding month, I find that this month there are lots of anniversaries as well. Here's an elegant card that is just perfect for a classy congratulations message.





The star of the show for this card is the stunning Expressions In Ink DSP. It is part of  the Expressions In Ink suite of products in the Annual Catalogue that is absolutely stunning! The paper has a watercolour look - similar to the alcohol/ink technique - with strands of gold foil highlights. Here I have mounted a 3 7/8" x 5 1/8" piece of the DSP onto a mat of gold foil which sits regally on a card base of Evening Evergreen cardstock (my new fave colour).

The leafy die-cut is from the Artistic Dies, included in this fabulous suite. This is cut from gold foil as well. The sentiment is heat embossed using gold embossing powder & popped up on a gold foil mat. A tiny bow of gold twine completes this elegant card.

This is such a lovely artistic look & so on trend! So much so that the June Paper Pumpkin kit has the same ethereal theme. I cannot wait to gather with my Paper Pumpkin Peeps to create cards with this artistic look.




And speaking of Paper Pumpkin - a reminder that all those who subscribe through me will have access to free classes & materials for alternatives to stretch your Paper Pumpkin kit. 

Be sure to check back next week to see our creations from this month's kit.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers,
Arlene
