A WEDDING CARD IN A HURRY!

Last Friday I was in a rush.  Josh had yet another wedding to go to.  I thought I had a wedding card made as I made up quite a few at one time a couple of months ago.  But I didn’t keep up with how many weddings he has been to lately!!!  So this was a wedding card made in a hurry.

This card changed a lot over the time I made it but in the end I went with this.  It was hard to get a good photo of it so I do apologise for the lighting.

The base is Sweet Sugarplum and the white card is embossed with the Petal Burst Embossing Folder. I only just received this folder.  I can’t believe I waited so long! The sentiment which is from Always and Forever is heat embossed by Copper Embossing Powder.  The white circle was layered on a piece of Copper Foil cut with the Layering Circle Framelits.  I played around with different things on it and wasn’t sure which way to go.  Like I had so much time to muck around with it…  In the end I cut a few of the flowers and leaves from the Flourish Thinlits.  A few loopy Copper Threads and an adhesive pearl finished it off.  

I hope you like the finished result.  Maybe I should have done 2 as there is another wedding for him to go to in a couple of weeks … 🙂

Have a great weekend,

ALWAYS AND FOREVER ANNIVERSARY!

I was asked by a lovely friend to make 2 Wedding anniversary cards for 2 of her children who are both celebrating their anniversaries this month.  I haven’t made too many anniversary cards so wondered what to do.  Then … My order arrived with my Stampin’ Blends and the Always and Forever set.  🙂

These are the cards I made.

I wasn’t sure what I would do with the stamps though.  I cut some squares of white card and would see where it would take me.  I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Ink on Thick Whisper White card.  That is essential when using the Stampin’ Blends.  Then they were coloured them with the Blends.  On scrap card I stamped them again. For the tree stump I stamped it in Night of Navy and cut the little hearts and adhered them straight on to the image. For the tree rings I stamped it on Night of Navy card and cut the heart out and then raised it up with Dimensionals and added a Rhinestone to the heart.

Instead of adhering the white card to a card mat I added a strip of either Silver Foil or Copper Foil at the top and bottom of the white card.  The Designer Series Paper is from the Delightful Daisy DSP.  The sentiment is from the Best Birds set and cut with the Bunch of Banners Framelits.
