Hi Stampers. I seem to have wedding on the brain… I wonder why? LOL Since tomorrow is Amy’s wedding, I’ll post that card on Sunday. Today’s cards were made for a customer – for an anniversary card actually, but it works for either. She chose the Blackberry Bliss and/or Rich Razzleberry color and I made two examples for her to choose from.
This first example uses a Blackberry Bliss card base, 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″. Next is a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Fancy Foil Designer Vellum – has the silver hearts on it. I then took a piece of Silver Glimmer paper approx. 3″ x 2″ with an approx. 2.5″ x 1.5″ and layered them on the left side vertically. I then stamped Happily Ever After on a piece of Whisper White card stock in Blackberry Bliss ink, trimmed it to fit and adhered it to the card vertically.
I also make a matching envelope on the envelope punch board from the same Designer Series Paper and layered some Blackberry Bliss and Whisper White card stock on the front – so there would be somewhere clean to address the envelope.
This card is very similar. It started out with a Whisper White card base. I then used a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Blackberry Bliss card stock. On the Blackberry Bliss layer, I used the Filigree Frame Textured Impressions embossing folder. For the sparkled greeting I rubbed the embossing buddy on the card stock, then used the Versamark ink pad and the Iridescent Ice embossing powder. For the bling, I punched a few flowers with the butterfly punch and added a few rhinestones. Again, I used the envelope punch board to make a custom matching envelope.
In the end, she chose the second one and I added the first one to my pile of cards for sale. I would love for you to have a party and earn some free stamping supplies or purchase some from my store. But, if you are just too busy, let me make your cards for you!
As I told one of my recruits earlier (she is a hobby demo, working on some cards to sell at a craft faire) – There is NO STRESS in stamping! Come join us!
