Hi everyone!! Yes I am back! I took some time off and now I am back stronger than ever! Sooo.....my boss wanted a card for a wedding, so I had to come up with a wedding card. I have to admit that I do not have a lot of wedding stamps, and then I remembered a old stamp set from Stampin' Up called Wonderful Moments that had a bride in it and it's perfect! I paired it up with a sentiment from a Stampin' Up stamp set Word Play and I let the creative juices flow!
First, I wanted to emboss the background so I picked the Tufted embossing folder from Stampin' Up and embossed a piece of 4"x5.25" 110lb white cardstock. I then cut a piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock from Stampin' Up to stamp the bride image on using my WOW! Embossing Pad, and then embossed the image using Fine Detail White embossing power from Simon Says Stamp. I then found some silver cardstock in my stash and stamped the sentiment using Stazon ink. I wanted to use Stazon ink because of the metallic surface of the silver cardstock. I then popped up the Elegant Eggplant strip and the sentiment with some foam tape and added clear rhinestones to the embossed area and around the bride and added purple rhinestones on the sentiment strip. I used some black cardstock to mat it, and then glued it to a 110lb cardstock card base. It was very easy and I was done in less than a hour. I was going for a elegant look, and I think I achieved it!
Next week, I am the Growing In Unity Girl for the Unity Stamp Company's Facebook page and I am so excited! I have been working on some awesome cards so I hope you will stop by and see what I am up to!
Happy Crafting Y'all!
