Its wedding season

June 1, 2010

My husband and I are just getting to the point in live that we are going to weddings again,  this summer, a special wedding of my oldest daughter’s bff since they were six!  So a special card was needed.  By the way,  when I make cards,  I usually create a series since I have all the stuff out and have already made the mess.   Look at the wedding card for Mallory and remember I am on a mission to use my stash!



Ok here goes:

Stamps:  SU Blissful Bride (summer mini) — loved the dress stamp had to have the set

Paper: SU CS and DP

Ink: embossed classic black on dress; otherwise SU chocolate chip, SU marker

Tools: Time Holtz die cut bird cage; glue gun, EK scallop punch

Embellies: SU HPH frame and brad, Yellow Bicycle shop “Clothesline” Flower Stick Pins (at archievers now), moss taffeta ribbon (love taffeta it lies well and is so easy to make the bow), rayon vintage trim (picked up at a thrift shop), leaf shaped ribbon (need more of this — any clues where to buy it?) mini prima flower.

The difference in the cards is the use of the SU bird punch..I used an embossing folder and ran white confetti cardstock through it, then punched the bird and inked the top of the bird,  added a green rhinestone for an eye.  I also inked the cage in bronze for more depth.   I wanted a subtle inside, so I used the tone on tone bird punch as an accent for the greeting.  “From the Heart” is a SU Watercolor Trio stamp.
