I have been putting off making a wedding card until I found a sketch that I thought would work for what was inside my head. Well – I found it! The sketch at FabFriday was just what I was looking for. In addition, one of the Heart2Heart Challenges this month is for a congratulations card, so that works. And Stamp Ink Paper has a Card Makers Choice challenge going on with the stipulation of using your favorite stamp, colors and paper. Well, white cardstock seems to be a staple, so guess you could say it is a favorite. Gold and Silver are always fun to work with. But the favorite stamp was easy. It’s the striped border stamp! I have used that stamp on so many projects – glad I could use it on this one as well.
I knew that I wanted to use the Cricut cuts of Mr. and Mrs. overlaid on the stamped ampersand. I decided to emboss the ampersand with silver and cut the words from gold glitter paper. I also embossed the card base to give it a little more definition.
On the inside of the card, I stamped flowers in a light grey ink, then embossed the "Congratulations" in gold over the top. Just wanted to keep the silver/gold theme going on the inside as well!
Here's a list of what I used on this52 card.
