On Your Special Day
Thanks for stopping by at my blog today. I have had blogger issues this week that I think a lot of you have also had, so apologies if I missed a post by you. Also. my mojo has been at an all time low recently....don’t you just hate when that happens. So for my Cheery Lynn Design post I decided to play along with their Wedding Theme Challenge and I was soon back on track.
I decided to make a 6x6 card and thought it would be nice to have colours resembling the bride, groom and bridesmaid on my card, so I chose White, Grey and Lavender to work with. I cut out my French Lattice die twice in grey card and pieced them together to fit over my lavender paper to form a square. When doing this I found it easier to have my lilac paper cut roughly to the size I needed. I then worked out where my crosses matched best to make my join and re-align the 2 pieces together and glued onto my lilac card, finally trimming around the edges. My topper is two stamps stamped onto a pearlised linen card and die cut out with a little grey card mounted behind to make the design POP.
You will see I have used my Cuties Strip around my card. The die makes gorgeous flowers but is also great to use as accents onto your card. I die cut out in white card and inked the edges with a lavender shade. On the reverse of the paper I pressed my embossing tool into each petal, this gives a little more dimension to your card as doesn’t look flat when glued on.
I placed the Victorian Flourish die onto my card and used a couple of the waste pieces onto my design too. My miniature roses were cut out from linen card and when the glue had dried I rubbed over some lavender ink. Everything was placed onto my card along with my final touches of bling.
Hope you have a lovely weekend and get some time to be creative.
