Wedding Card - FSS Hearts & Roses
Today was my Grandson Jarett's Wedding. So hard to believe I have a married Grandson already.
So, here is the wedding card I made. I combined several ellements from Close to my Heart and some4 from Fred She Said.
I finally got around to playing with the new CTMH exclusive Cricut Cartridge "Artbooking". This cartridge is loaded with things for scrapbooking and mini books, however, with the magic of the cricut craft room, I was able to take a scrapbook overlay and make it to fit my 5 x 7 card. In order for it to show up, I cut it out of white CS and layered it onto a Colonial White Card base.
The Heart and Roses are pre-colored images from Fred She Said. I typed in the sentiment and date onto the heart. I cut out extra roses and layered them with foam tape on top of the original ones. The upper corner looked a little bare, so I stamped the bride & groom in black from the CTMH "The Happy Couple" Stamp Set. Then I added some small pearls around the heart.
Using a Spellbinders Die, I cut out CS to fit the Sentiment "Congratulation", also from the CTMH "The Happy Couple" Stamp Set. I Fussy cut another two sets of roses and added to the top of the sentiment. Also, layering more roses with foam tape on top of the originals.
I took some off white ribbon from my stash ans layered it across the middle of the card and lined it with big pearls. Then made an off white bow.
