On Your Special Day


I am thrilled to be here as Guest Designer for the new Color Hues Challenge where the challenge colors are Silver and White. I was in need of a wedding card for a couple who is very dear to me. Silver and white were a perfect starting point for that, so I went with a wedding theme.


 I recently spent a few hours learning to "Glimmer" (I love this new verb). To create my card, I started with the Spellbinders  December 2021 Large Die of the Month which has a very elegant lattice design. I die cut the base piece in white, then the middle piece in SU brushed silver. I did not use the top piece. I used the Foliage Border Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set from Foiled Basics by Yana Smakula for the circle and flowers, and a  sentiment from Yana's Special Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set. I felt that the card base needed a little texture, so I used Altenew's Dotted Swirls Debossing Cover die and that did the trick.

Head over to Color Hues and check out what the fabulous Design Team has come up with to inspire you and join us in the gallery. I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Im also playing at:

Everything is new except for the debossing die and the pearls.

Stephanie, this is so gorgeous! I'm learning to "glimmer' too and I love the elegance, shine and texture that make this card a standout. Also love your beautiful photo as it's hard to capture the foil. You've been a fabulous GD, congrats!

I have not bitten the glimmer bug as of yet but the more I am tempted with gorgeous cards like these the harder it is to refrain. I am sure I will cave in very, very soon! Love your wedding card Stephanie and love that you are with us for this challenge at Color Hues! Take care!

This is such a beautiful card, and must be even more gorgeous in "real life" with all that foiling! I received a glimmer machine for Christmas but due to travel and time-consuming online class have yet to break it out! Your card is great inspiration! So glad to have you as Guest Designer this month!
