Wedding Card

Hi all,

I made this card for my nephew’s wedding.  I used the cake and frame from free cards by bird.  I used 3 different types of white card stock.  I really like the way the all white looks.  The card base was embossed with hearts, the frame was white linen card stock and the cake was a combination of the linen and shiny white card stock.  I used pearls from Recollections and little pink roses from my stash.  The center panel with the cake is popped up using pop squares. This card is a little bigger then an A2 size.  It consisted of several layers and took quite a bit of time but  I like the way it came out.  I used my  Silhouette Cameo DE for all the cuts.  It was hard to get a good photo because of the white on white combination.

Anniversary card using Silhouette Cameo

Hi all,

I can’t believe my daughter celebrated her 5th wedding anniversary already.  So much has happened in the last 5 years. All good though.  She now has two children and a new job she enjoys.

Here is a card I made for her using my silhouette cameo and a step card from their on-line store.

The paper is from a wedding pack I purchased at Michaels.2013-05-31 12.34.52

OWH Sketch Challenge #143 with Tonic Studios!

Operation Write Home along with Tonic Studios has challenged us to create a card for our Troops using sketch #143.

Here’s the sketch…

I decided to create a card with a winter theme. I used Close To My Heart Artiste Cricut cartridge for the snowflakes and the coordinating winter stamp for the sentiment.  I used cuddlebug snowflake embossing folder for the background.  I highlighted the embossed snowflakes with Tim Holtz embossing ink. I added liquid pearls to the snowflake to give it a little dimension and sparkle.  I embellished the bow with a crystal from Megan Elizabeth | Above Rubies Studio

I love the blue and white colors together. The card measures 4.25 by 5.50.

Comments are always welcome.
