Wedding Card

Hello once again! This is my second post for the day so scroll down if you wanna see my first post.

This card is another requested card by one of the youth members of our church, the lovely Louise. She asked me 2 weeks ago to make a wedding card for her friend and my mind was so blank to put together a wedding card (for the past few days) that's why I just finished this one few hours ago. My Mojo seems to be somewhere else lately..good thing it came back right on time. LOL!

She didn't give me any particular colours so I called the shot for this one. Here it is:

My card base is a white cs, then I matted this shimmery dp from Grant Archival with a black cs and adhered it to the card base. I used my ticket corner punch on the four sides of the dp so I can put on some tiny pearls on it.

Originally, the image and the sentiment (which is a rub on) were stamped and rubbed on together and was die cut using Labels One. But when I did my sponging, I didn't like the way it turned out. So I cut half of the Labels 1 and just took the part where I rubbed on the sentiment. I then stamp the hearts image again and embossd it using clear ep, cut it with my circle Nesties and adhered it to my scalloped Nesties.

To hide the edge of the cut Labels 1, I then adhered black grosgrain ribbon then put another organdy ribbon on top of it. The rest is self explanatory. I hope she likes this one when I hand this to her tomorrow.

How about you? What do you think of this card?

Thanks for looking.



Red and White Birthday

Hello!!! Whew! It's been a week since I last posted here. Been quite busy around the house and making requested cards as well. Hope you're all doing very well wherever you are.

This card was actually requested to me by a friend to be given to another friend. :D It's for an 18th birthday and she wanted the colours to be just red and white. I have actually been having problems with my guillotine (the cut is going slanted) and been eyeing for the Making Memories trimmer (as per the product review, it works very well). I believe the paper trimmer/cutter is every cardmakers' best friend. Do you agree with me?? Well, it's because our activity when making cards is mostly cutting...from the card base up to mattings and so on. So, it has to be something really reliable. I was still able to use my guillotine but I bought a pre-cut card bases just to make sure. :D

Okay, here's my card and let me know what you think..

Yes! I already have the white embossing powder!! I've been looking for this but it's always sold out. Good thing when I went to our LSS yesterday, they have these newly-delivered embossing powders and luckily, I found a white one. This ep is from Hero Arts.
I stamped my ODBD Scripture Collection 2 bible verse with Versamark and heat-embossed with white ep. The dp is Breeze by Prima from their Harmony Collection while the red cs is from Bazzill. The flowers were made using Shapeabilities Daisy Heads and ran through my Cuttlebug Textile embossing folder. I finished off the card by putting pearls on its center and to the 2 corners of the card.

I have just finished another card but will post it in a little while so stay tuned.

Thanks for visiting and have a lovely day!

God bless!
