Hi blogging friends
It feels good to be able to play in my Craft Room a bit more - and today I am sharing a Wedding Card:
This is also my entry for the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Take your pick - the last challenge of every month has several themes and you simply take your pick from them. There’s a sketch, a colour theme, a product theme and a technique theme to choose from. I chose the Technique Theme which is: Embossing either heat, dry or simply embossing a die or using an embossing folder. I used heat embossing and dry embossing on my card.
Splitcoaststampers - Clean and Simple CAS310 Challenge - Love is in the Air - which is from February but there are no time limits to play SCS Challenges.
Anyway, on to my card........
I love to use embossing folders to make wedding cards and used one of my all-time favourite folders by Craft Concepts - Budding Vine. So pretty, don't you think?! Once I worked out whereabouts on the card I was going to put my cord, I made two pencil lines about 1/2" apart so that I knew exactly where to do the dry embossing, then used my Martha Stewart Score Board to score a line right underneath and above the dry embossing. I really love how the score line just "finishes" the dry embossing edge.
I used a Corner Chomper on the 1/2" setting to round the bottom corners then tied on the silver cord which came from my local supermarket last Christmas. I added Fray Stop to the cut ends to stop them from fraying and added a dot of Super Glue to the knot to stop the cord from coming undone. I attached the dry embossed panel to a top-opening white cardstock base by using lots of doublesided tape and a bit of Tombow Mono Multi glue (less surface area from the dry embossing = need more adhesive!) then trimmed the bottom and side edges to 1/16" using my Perfect Layers Tools. I rounded the bottom corners using the same 1/2" setting on the Corner Chomper.
The sentiment panel was diecut using a Spellbinders Nestabilities Floral Ovals die (I used the 2nd largest die). The sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp set - Sending and Wishing and was stamped with my MISTI using Versamark Watermark ink and heat-set using Ranger Silver Superfine embossing powder. I attached the sentiment panel using dimensionals.
Lastly, I punched a heart from pink glitter cardstock using a Carl CP-1 Heart punch. Initially, I had punched a red glitter cardstock heart but decided to go for a softer look by using the pink instead.
Finished size is 5 inches x 5 inches or 127mm x 127mm.
