Card A Day Blog Post: Wedding

Hello everyone, it's time for another Card A Day Blog Post. This week's theme is, Wedding.  Here is the card I made for the occasion.

To make my card, I started off with a 5.5" x 4.25" white card base. I looked through my stash of stamps, and came across this sentiment stamp that I thought would be great for a wedding card. I stamped it on a piece of white card stock, using my Memento, Red Rose, ink pad, then set it aside for later.

I wanted to make a window to put my sentiment in, so I looked through my collection of Spellbinders dies for something that would make and interesting cut out. I ended up using one of the dies from the Floral Doily Accent set. I thought it made a pretty frame, and was just the right size. I cut the shape out in the middle of a piece of white card stock, cut to 5.25" x 4", using my Cuddlebug, then embossed it with Darice's, Scrolls Background embossing folder. I inked the embossed scrolls with the same ink I used on my sentiment, using a makeup sponge. I also inked the edges, and the die cut section as well, which was no easy!

I added adhesive to my sentiment, then holding my embossed piece, I placed the sentiment where it would show through the window. I then added dimensional tape to the back of the embossed piece, and placed it on top of the card front, so that the sentiment showed through the window.

To finish off the card, I made a bow using my Bow Easy using a dark pink organza ribbon. I looped it around 3 times to make a bow that had three loops on each side. I placed a little pink heart metalic stud in the middle of the bow, then adhered it to the lower left corner of the window.

I really love how this card turned out, and I hope you did too. I think this one could not only be used for a wedding card, but for Valentine's Day, or a general  I love you card for any time of the year. I would really love to hear what you think, so if you have the chance, please leave me a comment.
