Gina K Designs - Preview Day Two

I chose to preview With This Ring by Rupa Shevde for Day Two. I love her classic art style. And this set is such a fabulous go to set for all of your wedding and anniversary cards. I also like that it contains a Bible verse that could be used for other projects as well.

When I first saw this set, I was drawn to the cake image. I love looking at wedding cakes. Every time I make a wedding card I end up using Soft Sky, Silver or Gray and a lot of White. Here is the final result for my preview of With This Ring:

I used base weight Pure Luxury White for the card base. The size is 5" x 5". I used layering weight Pure Luxury for the cake and the embossed die cut piece. I used brushed silver from Stampin' Up for the silver matte. I colored the flowers on the cake with Copic Markers, BG10 & BG93. I used a silver sakura stardust pen for the small balls at the base of the first and second layers of the cake and to dot the inside of each of the flowers on the cake. The flower accent is from Gina K Designs White Flower pack. I tied some white DMC embroidery thread to the button and attached it to the flower center with glue dots.

Now for the inside of the card. I wanted to keep it simple. Here is a close-up of the inside of the card:

I used more brushed silver and stamped the rings with VersaMark ink. Then embossed the image with silver embossing powder. I very carefully trimmed them and attached them with foam tape to give them dimension. I added little rhinestones to the other three corners.

I hope you enjoyed my preview of With This Ring. I would love to hear what you think; please feel free to leave a comment. For the entire ingredient list scroll to the bottom of this post.
