Hi there Crafty Friends! I know this is way... late but I did start the post in November, lol. I have been pretty busy with life in general but I hope to keep on this more, for the rest of the year.
November 12, 2014: I hope the holiday season is treating you well. As Christmas approaches I know many of us are working on Christmas cards. I stopped for a bit. My sister in-law will be attending two weddings while on vacation in the Philippines and she asked me to make a couple. I thought I'd share them with you.
As I got started I realized I don't have many wedding stamps and therefore had a hard time starting my projects but as you can see I got them done.
I've been on a mission with trying to use up some of my stash, I'm sure all of your can agree it is easier to buy supplies rather than use it all up.
This card base and the envelope were pre-made by Paper Studio. The base was embossed with the same embossing powder as the sentiment. The striped paper came from a 6x6 paper stack by DCWV. The ribbon was re-purposed from some packaging I had. The heart shaped acrylic pearls were purchase at Miriams Crafting Blog she has great prices for embellishments, I highly recommend. The stamp is part of the Forever collection #015 by Basic Grey.
The second card (below) was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest, I have to say Pinterest is one of the best inventions ever! I've planned so many functions and crafting sessions around Pinterest, it is such a helpful tool to have access to and with great ideas for almost anything.
Anyway, this card is a standard A2 card which I corner rounded with my corner chomper. The embossed layer was made using the embossing folder called Damask by Paper Studio. The ribbon again was re-purposed from packaging and the black and silver glitter paper is from a 6x6 DCWV paper stack called Twinkle Glints.
Maybe it doesn't look so wedding like but that's what I went with and thought it came out pretty cute.
Have a good one y'all!
