Good morning Monday!
Do you have many weddings to attend this summer? Here is a beautiful wedding card for you! I just love this horse and carriage die template from Tattered Lace! This card is not difficult, but it does take a bit of time because of all the layers. Enjoy!
Supplies: Once in a while stamp, staz-on Black ink, vellum, 110# white cardstock base cut for 5″ x 7″ card, 140# cold press watercolor paper, baroque stencil, modeling paste, embossing folder -swirl design, glitter, Spellbinders labels 17, Nestabilities Amazing Paper Grace Becca Feeken Ornamental Crest Etched Dies, Tattered Lace horse and carriage, Sue Wilson Dies – Scandinavian Collection – Copenhagen, rhinestone and pearl brooch, stick pins, foam tape, hot glue, dries clear adhesive, faux pearls, faux rhinestones, glitter paper, micro-fine clear or white glitter, candlelight paper, white cardstock, white tulle
Directions: We will work from the base of the card up to the top layer. Cut your card base from heavy white cardstock, cut silver glitter paper matt, cut next layer from candlelight paper and emboss with swirl design, cut Sue Wilson die from white cardstock with adhesive paper on it. after it’s die cut, peel off the adhesive cover and coat die cut with clear or white glitter. Use modeling paste on watercolor paper and sprinkle with glitter, set aside to dry.

Put dimensional foam tape on piece and some wet adhesive and glue into place. Stick the pins through the bow and attach brooch with hot glue. Embellish with faux pearls and rhinestones!

Good morning! Wow, I have been making cards like crazy for an upcoming vendor fair. Here is one of my favorites!
Supplies: Spellbinders Peony, Rose Creations, Rose leaf, Decorative square die, embossing folder, pearl shimmer paper, 6″x 6″ 110# cream cardstock base, gold poster board, Distress Ink- picked raspberry, antique linen, vintage photo, peeled paint, mowed lawn, forest moss, faux pearls, vellum, congratulations stamp, staz-on timber brown ink, paper glue adhesive and hot glue, faux pearl and rhinestone embellishment.
Directions: Cut all the layers for your flower and leaves. (I used all the Rose Creations dies and two of the largest peony dies to make my flower bigger. I cut off the jagged edges of the peony petals to make them match the Rose Creations die better.) Spray pieces with water with a mini mister and ink with distress ink, shape petals, set aside to dry. Cut base and all matt layers, cut shimmer paper and emboss with chosen design. Layer your card, attach bow and adhere to card base. Glue your flower together with hot glue and add it to the top of all this beauty. Embellish bow with a gorgeous button. Double matt the inside. Done! 🙂
Have a creative day!
I have a simple, yet elegant red & white shimmery congratulations card to share with you today!
Supplies: Spellbinders Rose Creations, Impression Obsession floral heart, memory box foliage, Justrite Congratulations stamp, Memento Tuxedo black ink, 110# white cardstock for base, 140# cold press watercolor paper, vellum, red spray ink, perfect pearls pink spray ink, grape distress ink, stickles glitter (for center of rose), rhinestone bling
Directions: Make a 5″ x 7″ cardbase from white cardstock, cut a second piece of cardstock 4.5″ x 6.5″ and distress the edges. (I used my Zutter Distress it all tool. Cut all your Rose pieces- cut two of the smallest and next smallest for a full middle. Lay your heart die on the upper portion of your smaller piece of distress cardstock, die cut. Ink your heart and roses petals with red spray ink, pink perfect pearls ink, and when dry, edge the rose with distress ink grape. Shape your flowers using a stylus or a bone folder. I used a bone folder. Adhere layers together, I use hot glue so it goes fast and stays in place. Put some stickles in the center of your rose. Cut foliage from vellum. Do a dry run with your placement- so you have everything where you want it before you glue it down. Use pop dots to raise up distressed panel. Use wet glue or spray adhesive for the heart. Put hot glue at the bottom corner of the heart, lay your vellum leaves in place and put your flower on. Stamp your sentiment, add some rhinestones for bling! Done! 🙂 Simple. Elegant.
Enjoy your day!
