Elegant Liquid Pearls

A friend of mine (from college days) is getting married this month, so I wanted to create a somewhat simple/somewhat elegant looking card to send her.  Since it’s fall, I used a deep coral colored cardstock as my main color and added paper lace, ribbon, and pearls.
 To create my card I:
  • Scored a piece of coral cardstock diagonally every 3/4 of an inch
  • Squeezed out a drop of liquid pearls (white opal) on each intersecting score line
  • Distressed the edges and added it to a piece of kraft cardstock
  • Punched a wide piece of paper lace with my Martha Stewart deep edge punch
  • Tied a beautiful bow using  ruffle edge white sheer ribbon
  • A die cut sentiment from Echo Park finishes off the front
  • Inside I added another piece of punched lace and a Stampin up sentiment in Walnut Stain Distress Oxide
