Bridal Lingerie Card

I hope you’ve come back to see the bridal card I made for the bridal lingerie.┬áIf you tuned into my bridal lingerie post yesterday, I promise to keep it brief after yesterday’s long post.

Lingerie 1-37

I created a card base for the bridal lingerie using a pattern designed by Linda Williams in Pergamano Magazine 22, published at the end of 2009. Linda designs some of the most beautiful lace patterns available! This one is no exception. I selected this pattern for my background card because I felt it was a perfect fit for Linda’s lingerie design. I wanted to keep the theme lacy. I embossed the words “Oh La La” onto the card, I found the font on a Google Font search.

Lingerie 1-41

I traced the pattern onto regular parchment paper and embossed all lines and words with the small ball and extra small ball embossing tools. I used a 2-split perforating tool within the lace and a 2-needle perforating tool around the perimeter of the outer card.

As you can see, the patterned paper is much darker on the card base. The reason is (1) I increased the color settings on my photocopier to darken the colors and (2) you’re viewing the front side of the parchment paper. If you remember in my post yesterday, I stated that the patterned paper on the bra is actually the back side of the parchment paper. When embossing colored parchment paper, you emboss on the front side (the darker side), the embossing on the back side (lighter side) turns white. If you attempt to emboss on the back side (lighter side) of the pattern paper, your embossing will NOT be white on the front side (darker side).

Lingerie 1-42You can see the lace scallops up close on this photo. The pattern on the designer paper is very close to the color of the bridesmaids dresses in my wedding. As I posted in the Bridal Lingerie post, I used Graphic 45’s Gilded Lily Collection for the bra and for the inner card by photocopying it onto regular parchment paper using a HP 6968 copier.

Lingerie 1-50

The outer layer of my card is regular parchment paper. The middle layer is regular parchment paper that I ran through my photocopier using a page of Graphic 48’s Gilded Lily Collection paper. I enlarged the pattern so that it would be large enough for the middle layer card insert. I inserted a sheet of white parchment paper for the innermost card. The layers were sew together with pearl blending filament thread on the fold line.

Thank you so much for spending part of your weekend with me, I so appreciate your visits, I wish you much sunshine and happiness this weekend with family and friends!

    The bra looks even more exquisite on the card. Love the intricate lacework on the overlay nd the fact that it is offset to get a peek at the patterned paper.
