Hello everyone, I hope you are all well.
Today I am sharing a card I made for a crafty friend of mine who got married (on the quiet!) recently.
Here is my card. Apologies for the not so good light, it is so hard to get good light at this time of year, no matter what time of day.
I used the so so cute “Charmed” stamp set from Mama Elephant to create the card. I don’t own any “wedding” stamp sets, so needed to find something where I could pair two animals together, and I thought this was a sweet set to use.
I started by stamping the owls, banner, wreath and heart onto Neenah Solar White cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black ink so that I could colour them with Copics. I also stamped the sentiment onto the banner at this point. Once I had coloured everything, I used the coordinating die set to cut the images out.
I then traced the outside of the wreath onto Neenah cardstock, and blended three distress inks onto the traced area. Once I had done this I cut the inked area out and attached the wreath onto the top using wet adhesive.
All that was left to do was assemble the card. I used a quilted stitched pattern die to create a 5.5″ x 4.25″ panel for the backdrop. I popped up the wreath with some double sided foam tape, and then the two owls and heart with a double layer of foam tape. The congratulations banner was just adhered with acrylic glue. Finally I added some sparkle to the banner and the heart just to give it a little extra interest.
That finishes my card for today. Thank you as always for stopping by.
