A Bella Bleu Wedding




It's the SEASON for weddings and I am running out of Bella Bleu Designer Series paper! I have loved using it and today's project was a blast! One of my customer's sent me a picture of a Tri-Shutter card. Thanks Lynn! I needed a bridal shower card and decided to give this card a try. You can find the instructions for the Tri-Shutter card here on SplitCoast Stampers.

This is definitely one of those WOW cards when you open it up. Inside I attached a gift card using glue dots. It took some time to cut the layers for this card but, I love the final results. The heart is from the Always stamp set. It's inked in VersMark, then Not Quite Navy ink, sprinkled with Iridescent Ice and set with the Heat Tool for the perfect amount of sparkle!

Bella Bleu Designer Series paper will be around through the end of June but will retire with the new Idea Book and Catalog. If you've got a lot of weddings coming up this summer you may want to stock up! The colors that coordinate are Kraft (which is retiring), Very Vanilla, and Not Quite Navy. The finished card size is a standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card.

Hope you enjoyed today's project. See the recipe below for a list of supplies I used. If you need help with your wedding/shower cards and invitations contact me, I'd love to help! Have a great weekend!

God Bless,
