Just Peachy

Handwritten style fonts are a big trend right now and the new The Big, the Bold, and the Happy set from Winnie and Walter may just be my favorite example of this trend.  I put it to use on this design based on both the peachy color scheme from the current Curtain Call Inspiration challenge and the current Deconstructed Sketch--adjusted to fit an A2 sized card.

With Love-designed by Lori Tecler-Inking Aloud-stamps from Winnie & Walter
I started off by stamping the "with love" sentiment in gold ink on a pale, pale pink fishtail flag panel, then embossing the words in gold.  The embossed panel is layered over a paper doily with coordinating circles.  I topped the fishtail flag panel with a narrow white fishtail flag strip.  It doesn't look straight in the photo, but it is IRL, I promise!  The strip is anchored with a die cut gold heart.  I made a tiny bow from a piece of gold twine and added that to the heart with a teeny, tiny glue dot.

The dressed up doily is adhered to a piece of peachy dotted paper set on a pale pink card base to match the sentiment panel.  To bring in just a bit more of the sparkly gold element, I scattered a trio of gold sequins around the panel.

Materials Used:
The Big, the Bold, and the Happy stamp set (Winnie and Walter); Delicata Gold ink (Tsukineko); Insulation Pink cardstock, Die-namics Fishtail Flag Stax dies (My Favorite Things); white cardstock, gold sequins (Michaels); gold paper (Target); Fresh Cut 6x6 paper pad (Basic Grey); circle dies (Spellbinders); stitched heart die (Lil' Inker Designs); gold twine (Hemptique); white paper doily; foam tape
