Doesn't that just sound good enough to eat? Ok, maybe not the tulle. But I find myself mysteriously hungry after using Stampin' Up's newest Core Color, Cherry Cobbler! It's worse when I pair it with Crumb Cake!
I have weddings on the brain--whole post on that later--so when I pulled out a sheet of Cherry Cobbler to use the other night because I couldn't stand not to use that gorgeous color--it was natural for me to make a couple of wedding-related cards with it. The one on the left is ok--sorry you can't see the tulle too well on that one--but the one on the right turned out great! I used the Bella Toile background stamp on Very Vanilla cardstock and paired it with a layered punch--first a great scalloped image from the upcoming set Perfect Punches, and then the "for you" image from Elements of Style (Summer Mini).
I also added some little stick-on pearls--we're getting both those and stick-on rhinestones in the next catalog and I am SO excited about that--and layered it on Very Vanilla satin ribbon.
However, the tulle comes into play here because I wrapped a single layer of it around my Bella Toile piece before adhering it to the card. It looked so cool--just like fabric! And the added texture was so fun, you just had to run your finger across it. So there's a quick, cheap little somethin' for you to try. Wrap your focal point piece or a background layer in tulle, either white or ivory, before you attach to to your card. And then enjoy the unexpected little bit of texture!
