CWC Blogaversary - Day 2 - Pearls

Welcome to Paper Crafting World and Cooking With Cricut's 2nd Blog-Aversary and our week long celebration!  Each day for a whole week (May 19 - 26) we will be bringing you fabulous projects made by our Design Team members.  We have some GREAT blog candy as well as some daily file and graphic give-aways -- so you will definitely want to make PCW-CWC your daily stop every day this week! 

Our theme for today is 

 For Day 2 I created a standard size wedding card using white and silver. 

Closeup of embossed card base, frame and embossed "D" w/ pearls of course!

 Showing the shine of the embossed "D" a little more and the cluster of flowers.

I've had some questions regarding mailing "heavily embellished" or "bulky" cards.  I typically do not mail these types of cards in an envelope by itself, I generally mail them with a present so the card would be protected inside the shipping box.  If I were to send this card postal I would use a padded envelope (and cross my fingers it made it there safely).  Thanks for the great question -- keep them coming and I hope this answer helps!

For this card I used -
Cricut Cartridges - Martha Stewart Crafts Elegant Cake Art and Storybook
Sizzix Embossing Folder - Flower Vine #2
Recollections - Pearls (various sizes)
Embossing powder (used on "D") - Creative Beginnings Bridal (isn't that appropriate???)
Misc. - Cardstock, Ribbon, Flowers, Frame 
I wish I knew where the frame came from - I would like more.

Thanks for stopping by and make sure you head on over to Cooking with Cricut to check out the rest of the projects by our amazing Design Teams!
