This weekend, we are going to a wedding and I needed a card for the occasion. I decided to start with the Royal Digs set from Taylored Expressions. I took some Choice Snow White Cardstock and the Damask side of the Houndstooth/Damask Impression Plate and I letterpressed the cardstock. I inked the damask side up with some cream ink, placed the white cardstock on top and ran it through my Cuttlebug. I LOVE the look it gives. . .almost like I used a material for the background.
Next I punched a circle and stamped the Mr. & Mrs and used my ScorBug for the embossed line underneath the sentiment. I mounted the circle on a die cut Layering Doily Die Medium with foam tape. Then I took cream cardstock and pale pink cardstock and die cut the heart from Hearts a Plenty out of both and then pieced the opposing colors together. I adhered the completed heart onto the white circle with foam tape. I used a Cream Pearl Pen to add "pearls" onto each heart on the doily die cut. I tied some White/Light Pink Swirl Organdy Ribbon around the card and added a heart stick pin in the knot. The finishing touch was the stitching around the border of the card.
Thanks for stopping by today and have a GREAT weekend!
