Another Wedding Card



Here is another wedding card I made for my grandson's wedding yesterday. This one was for my daughter to give. I really need to teach her to stamp! *Ü*

I used "The Happy Couple" stamp set from Close to my Heart.  The paper is retired "La Belle Vie".

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. 


Other Challenges with this card:
Fussy and Fancy - Bingo- Flower, free, die cut
Aud Sentiments - Anything but Birthday
Paper Crafting Journey - Vintage/Distressed

This month we are highlighting NEW Products from the CTMH Fall/Winter Idea Book. 

I wanted to use a Center Step card for my club this month, so I decided to use my club card for this blog hop. 

The NEW paper pack I used is called Frosted and is matted with Twilight cardstock. My focal point image is called Bright All Night and is one of the stamps that you may purchase with some of your Hostess credits. Can you believe it's only $4.00. But, you must be a hostess in order to buy this stamp.

The snowflakes are cut from the Silver Glitter Cardstock. Actually the glitter snowflake is backed with a twilight snowflake layered just slightly askew. I just thought is showed up better this way.

The snowflakes stamped down the sides are from the Polar Bear Holiday stamp set
