Something Blue and Something New – by Heidi Blankenship

We have a lovely vintage inspired wedding card today from Heidi.  The Something Blue is one of the newer paper collections out by Prima, and it’s perfect for a wedding themed project. The Something NEW are the A Gilded Life texture plates and dies by Spellbinders. They offer such beautifully vintage options for your paper crafting projects. Though designed by Spellbinders to be able to cut/emboss heavier materials such as leather or plastic using the Spellbinders Media Mixáge Artisan X-plorer™ Machine, they work beautifully on paper in standard die cut machines used by paper crafters. Take a look – I know you’ll LOVE this project:


The distressed edge script panel is embossed with a texture plate from the A Gilded Life collection and the scallop strip through which the silk ribbon is run is cut with one of the dies from the A Gilded Life collection. Gorgeous!

You can find Heidi’s post on her blog here. She always offers valuable commentary and helpful tips!
