A Quick bit of Inspiration...

I did not make this card.  It's actually rather ironic that I am posting it today since I just politely turned down the opportunity to post some Provo Craft Father's Day projects on my blog.  I had seen these popping up in a lot of places and I felt like most of you would have seen them already.  I usually post only my own work but sometimes I see something that appeals to me as a source of inspiration that I want to share with you.

This was a card that my son and future daughter-in-law received at the party.  It is so "on trend" with the damask patterns and black and white color scheme.  On the back it says "Paper Magic Group."  As soon as I saw it I thought "something like this would be easy to make with all of my crafty toys!"

Most of the detail is printed but there is some ribbon and pearls added for dimension.  The cake stand itself is printed on the card front - metallic and embossed.

I thought it would be fun to use this card as the inspiration to create a wedding card.  I don't mean to suggest that you should try to replicate the card - just see what it leads you to design.  I have a small prize for one random winner to be chosen from those of you who take up the challenge (just a hint - it does include some black and white)!

I will show you what I did for the last two challenges soon - thanks to the people who gave them a try.  This weekend is going to be very busy for us (as I am sure it is for many of you with end of the school year/beginning of summer activities).  I hope you find some time to be crafty!

  1. This is really gorgeous. I hope I have time to try something like it for your challenge.

    And thank you for not posting the fathers day stuff. It was kind of annoying to see the exact same post on at least 5 blogs that I subscribe too.

  2. Wow, Beautiful card!!! :-)
