Friday, July 7, 2017 Guest Designer Wedding Card

This week I have the privilege of being a Guest Designer for!
***Special Note: the Cropstop website is down because of technical issues and hopes to be back up and going very soon!*** Yes, they're back!
My hubby and I recently attended the wedding of a young relative so, of course, I had to make a special card! I really enjoy making wedding cards because I have the perfect excuse for frills and flowers and elegance! ( I actually kept this one kinda tame.)


To create this card I chose some pale pastel card stock called "Boogie Board" from Bazzill Basics Paper and I punched the Martha Stewart "Doily Lace" borders from both the pale blue and the ivory. The embossed layer was created using a Cuttlebug folder called "Poppy" by Anna Griffin (one of my very favorites!) The sentiment, a Bildmalarna stamp, is stamped in Memento "London Fog" dye ink and die cut using the Spellbinders "Labels 20" die. The flowers and leaves are a combination of four punches: McGill "Birch Leaf" and "Star Flower", and Martha Stewart "Flower" and "Frond". I like to "cup" the flowers a bit so I used my McGill shaping tools and mat. The final "tweaks" are the Ranger Stickles "Star Dust", Doodlebug Designs "Sprinkles" glitter dots, and lightly sponged color on the die cut. For that I used one of my many Tsukineko sponge daubers (another favorite!). Many of these products are available at the CropStop shop! And please check out their blog to see all of the DT's lovely cards this week!
