simple-create-too-logo-for-dt

It is that popular wedding season again. We are challenging you to make a wedding card(s) this month. I actually made two different cards, pus a thank you card for the minister.

Card 1 – I used a digi stamp by A Day for Daisies called, “Wedding Veil.” I started by colouring the images with my Copics. It is really hard to notice, but I added some clear Wink of Stella to the Veil. I cut it out into an oval using my oval dies from MFT. I also cut a large Flourish using another die by MFT. I used a very pretty printed vellum as my background and layered the image and flourish. For the finally touch I added some gemstones.

For Card 2: I used a fun digi from Tiddley Inks called, “You and Me.” I decided to stay fairly neutral so I gray tones with skin and hair colours only. I cut thr image and background oval using my oval dies from MFT. Again I layered coloured vellum over a printed card stock. I used 4 gems to hid to glue dots I used to secure the corners.

Card 3: I made to be given to the minister after the ceremony. I included a small envelop and a slot to hold it inside the card for the donation to the church. For this card I relied on the beauty of the card stock. I cut it to suit the 5×7 card format, mini envelop, slot, and card envelop. The Thank you die is from IO.

Simply Create Too – #125- Lots of Green – MARCH 3 TO MARCH 31

simple-create-too-logo-for-dt

When I think March and Green I think, St. Patrick’s Day! It is super special as it was the day Ron and I got married. We got married amidst snow, freezing rain and “green” beers! March 17th would have marked our 35th Wedding Anniversary. Unfortunately, I lost Ron to Heart failure, but I still remember each and every St. Patrick’s Day fondly.

Our theme is lots of Green. I used an adorable little “Irish” sheep from Bugaboo Stamps as the main feature of my card(s). I coloured him with Copic markers, fussy cut him out and popped him onto my card base use foam tape. I added St. Patrick’s Day stickers from my stash to finish off my card. I hope you like it!
