Wedding Card

Hello everyone,

I can’t believe it’s June already.  June is a big wedding month and so  I decided to play along with the Paper Players this week as their challenge is Wedded Bliss.  Our niece is getting married on June 13 so I needed a card for her wedding, so this is the perfect challenge for me.

More Valentine’s cards

Hello all!  I hope you are staying warm wherever you are.  Today I am sharing some more Valentine’s Day cards that I made.

Be My Valentine circle card framelit

We made this card at a recent Stampin’ Up Workshop.  The cardstock is Whisper White, Basic Black, and Real Red. Stamp sets used:  Delightful Dozen, Language of Love, and Tags 4 You. Ink is Real Red.  We also used the Chevron punch for the front of the card. 

Cut a piece of black paper 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ (this will give you the extra flap on the right side of the card.  Watch this video on how to cut paper this way:  http://www.youtube.com/watch/?v=nwedAASXzok.   She explains it so well.)  Decorate at shown.

Masculine Valentine Card

For this card, I took my inspiration from France Martin (Frenchie).  She used the Hardwood Stamp which is in the new occasions catalog from Stampin’ Up.  Since I don’t have that stamp yet, I used the wood grained DSP from the Well Worn paper  pack.  For the heart I used the Heart punch and punched it from the bottom left corner of the card front  I then took a scrap of the Woodgrain paper  and placed it behind the punched out heart and sponged with the sponge dauber.  I then attached this to the back of the front panel using dimensionals to give it a 3-D affect.  The sentiment is stamped with Versa Mark and heat embossed using white embossing powder.  I used the Envelope Liners Framelits dies to make a liner for my envelope.  

Bee Mine

These cards use the Way to Be stamp set (retired) and embossed paper doilies.  I will have more on this technique in my next blog post.  Cardstock is Basic Black, Basic Gray, Whisper White, Real Red, and Melon Mambo.  The heart shaped doily I got at Michael’s.

I hope you have been inspired with these cards to create some of your own.  All the cards today are the standard A2 card (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″)  Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day.
