Sweet Day

Cards Comments Off on Sweet Day

It’s been a productive weekend.  I finished two card orders, started on a third and got one more Christmas card designed.  Of course, my housework is lacking…

Today’s card uses several different paper patterns – always a challenge!  This layout was a card sketch some time ago (either on SCS or a blog…sorry, don’t remember where it’s from) and it works great for multiple patterns.  I like to use double-sided PP when I make this type of card as the manufacturer has already ensured the papers will go together so there’s no guess work.  If you can find a cardstock base that goes with the paper you’ve won half the battle.

My cake is covered in doodlebug glitter – I tend to do that when using smaller stamp images plus it makes sense for a cake, I think!

The cardstock has been splattered with ink – I thought it was too plain so I used my spritzer and a regal rose marker to add a little interest to the celery cardstock.  I love using the spritzer but it’s hard to know when to stop.  I think I managed to stop in time on this card.

Time to start work!

Happy Together

Today’s card (well, it’s yesterday’s card but I’m blogging about it today) was a pleasure to make.  Not because of the paper or the stamps or the tools I used to create it but because it’s a wedding card for a co-worker that means a lot to me.

R (and his new bride, L) has been working with the company I work for since he left high school.  I’ve known him since he was 18 and to see him so focused, settled and happy just makes me smile.  He’s a gentle, sincere, kind-hearted person and I’m sure L knows just how lucky she is to be marrying him.

Anywhoooo…not like me to get so mushy – which just goes to show how much I think of the guy…

I used a stamp I purchased from Stamping Bella for the express purpose of making a card for R & L – of course, I’ll be able to use it for more wedding cards in the future!  I went with my go-to wedding card colours of black, white and pink (I do try to use the wedding colours if I know them – I didn’t in this case):

I used some versatile black, white and grey glittered paper and my trusty heart-shaped nestie die.  I only have a few of these dies and I try to carefully choose the ones I will get some use out of. 

You can’t see it in the picture but the image has been glittered in strategic places and glazed with a sakura glaze pen. (the hair, the shoes, the hat)

As the image was a bit too large to fit in my heart shaped die, I cut it and placed it on an angle.  If you look at the bride you can see I barely got the top of her head and the tip of her shoes on the die cut.

Well, I’m off to the wedding reception in a few minutes.  Enjoy the rest of your evening.
