MAY
The time for weddings, anniversaries, parties, celebrations, graduations, et al...We just went to a wedding of a young man we've known for 14 years. Seeing him and his lovely bride was inspiring. I have hope that some day, my daughter will meet, fall in love and marry someone of his calibur, his family's strength and faith. So refreshing.




Here is a close up of the card that I created for them:
You can see some of the embossing at the edges of the leaves, ribbon and dots.
I used Spellbinders wreath die (S4 104) to emboss Mr Ellie Pooh paper. Misting the paper with Paper Glide on the paper before running it though can help with the embossing.
  • After embossing, use a paintbrush to apply white paint. If desired, mix in a tiny bit of chalk pastels into dry brush efore painting.
  • Give the ribbon just a touch of color by painting the raised/embossed areas. Use the non-brush end, dipped in paint to add the berry accents.
  • Finally choose 2 green shades of Copic Sketch markers and gently color the leaves. Finally stamp the wedding date in the center using Ranger' Distress Ink in Tattered Rose.
  • Using photo corners by 3L, mat the card onto metallic white and then onto silver paper by Prism. Trim the paper to allow one inch of paper on the right side as shown.
  • Stamp the word forever onto the extra right hand side of the card front.
