Mary Brown and I had some time to work on a couple challenges Saturday night! I needed some cards made up to post to my Blog! I found this sketch from Mojo Monday several weeks ago. I thought it definitely looked challenging.
Another set I’m sad to see leave the catalog is To Have and To Hold. I like the stylized bride and groom, plus the set has some nice smaller images like the hearts, some champagne glasses, a rose…plus a couple nice greetings. I remember trying to find a champagne glass stamp a couple years ago when I was working in my In-Laws 50th Wedding Anniversary Book and having no luck. So…this set will stay in my collection.
I started with a base of Basic Gray cardstock. I stamped the swirl design in Pink Pirouette on the Pink Pirouette cardstock and layered it over the base card. I used the Gray pattern from Urban Oasis Designer Paper along the bottom and added a strip of Basic Black that I punched with the Scallop Edge Punch. I wrapped some Pink Taffeta Ribbon around the bottom, too. The Bride and Groom image from To Have and To Hold I stamped with Basic Gray on Whisper White and layered on Basic Gray. I stamped the Medallion from Together Forever in Basic Gray on Whisper White and used the letter B monogram from Lovely Letters with Pink Pirouette in the center. I hand cut out the medallion, then used my Circle Scissors tool to cut out a 2" circle to place it on. I stamped the hearts with Basic Gray on Whisper White and punched with the 1 1/4 square punch and layered on 1 3/8 square punch of Basic Gray cardstock.
I think this makes a very modern looking wedding card, although I did use 3 stamp sets! I like being able to personalize it by using their initial for the Monogram..
I finished my projects for the Stampin’ Addicts Blog Hop this weekend. Just need to photograph everything to get it ready to go! I have a few other assignments to work on this week…one being my Control Freaks swap! I’m happy that I have it designed, just need to crank out 30 of them!
Have a great day!
