A friend of mine asked me in May to make two wedding cards for her. I agreed and knew I had a couple of months to get them done. So in June when I was double checking what I needed to do, I discovered that I had missed the first wedding. Yikes! I felt bad and made sure that I got the card done for the second wedding.
I spotted THIS card on the Sunday Stamps challenge site that Shannon Jaramillo made and I knew that I would have to CASE it. So this is my version. I started off with white cardstock that I ran thru the linen impression plate. Then I stamped the image in versamark and used SU! melon mambo embossing powder. The stamp is from Awesomely Artistic and I had previously used it on THIS card.
I stamped the sentiment on white, embossed it in melon mambo and used the new SU! washi label punch. LOVE this punch!! I backed the card front on melon mambo and adhered it directly to the card base. The sentiment I popped up a bit. Simple but elegant.
Then, I decided that I liked Shannon’s version better, so I pulled the sentiment off and silver embossed the dress image (from SU! love and laughter) and then fussy cut it. I popped the dress up and bent the sentiment a bit to give it a wavy feel and then added it to the card. I added a few random pearls to the dress and the card front. Thank you Shannon for such a lovely inspiration and CASE!!
I actually like both versions the more I look at them but the most importantly, I wanted my friend to love the card I gave her to use – and she did!
Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to pop in tomorrow!!
