Beau Chateau Wedding Card

It is hard to see in the picture, but the pale pink of the Beau Chateau DSP along with some dyed pink glimmer hearts really set the tone for my wedding card.  I think I need to ask Santa to get me a better light set up for my picture taking so hopefully after the New Year you will see better quality pictures.

I started with Pink Pirouette cardstock for my card base, and then added a layer of Soft Suede, and then a piece of Beau Chateau Designer Series Paper.  I also added another smaller strip of Soft Suede and Very Vanilla, and embellished it with a Very Vanilla ribbon, and some hearts that were dyed with Pink Pirouette ink.  I cut the hearts with Silver Glimmer paper, and wanted to dye them to match the cardstock.  After researching how others were dying their glimmer paper, I found that you can use a Sponge Dauber and go directly from your ink pad to your glimmer paper, or like I did with my hearts, I just added two small drops of ink on each heart and then blended it in.  

I think if the ink color was darker to start with you could just use your sponge dauber directly from the ink pad to the glimmer paper, but since Pink Pirouette is a soft color, it worked better by applying the drops of ink directly to the paper. 

I also sponged a touch of Pink Pirouette ink around my stamped and punched sentiment, and place it on the card with dimensionals.
