Best of Brides & Babies


I hope you are having a relaxing weekend!  I have been playing in my craft room as much as possible and wanted to show you a card for a very sweet friend of mine, who is about to get married!  Wedding cards are not ones that I get a lot of practice with, but the “Best of” stamp set for Brides and Babies had just the right stamps.  The layout was just layered enough to make the dry embossing stand out nicely.  The wedding bell stamp, which was heat embossed and fussy-cut was a pretty embellishment to counteract the little flower and ribbon.  It really came together quickly because I always wait till the last minute to do my gifts for some reason!  I really don’t know why but there is nothing like a little panic to boost your creativity!

  1. Very elegant. It reminds me of the old fashioned cards that were so antique looking and gorgeous! You don’t find many of those any more. Just gorgous….the colors are so pretty together.

    We are having a furnace put in on the other side of our house so I can have some heat and stay warm now when I paper craft. Yay! I am getting there. I need to get some more supplies; markers, InColor ink pads and markers and paper yet and some more odds and ends. I’m almost there! And, I need to really organize everything yet too! Yay!

    Thanks so much for sharing with us! Love your talent!

  2. Beautiful elegant wedding card. Love the inspiration I get from your creativity here.
