I chose to add some bridal type stamens to the poinsettias for this project to keep with the bridal theme. I've heat embossed the flowers with white embossing powder along with the snowflakes.
The flowers have been stamped on a light blue patterned paper from the paper collection and then inked lightly with a blue ink.
Here's a bit of a closer look at the flower arrangement...
The snowflakes have also been heat embossed and then inked with a platinum color ink to give them some shine. The wooden word has been lightly painted with a white distress paint and then sponged with the platinum ink as well.
I can just picture a crafty bride and her bridesmaids sitting in a room where they've gathered together their manual die cutting machines, a bunch of inks in the colors of the wedding color palette and of course their shaping tools...ready to create these as table favors for their guests. The beauty of this project is that you can change up the colors, flowers, etc. to match the theme of your wedding! This would be equally as stunning using orchids, fuchsias, and even daisies!
I hope you've enjoyed today's share!
