Mojo Monday - Wedding Card
My friend Linda needed a wedding card and flattered me by saying she'd rather have one made by me than a store-bought card. So after the swelling of my head went down, I got to it.
This week's Mojo Monday Sketch 190 served as a nice place to start. Here's the sketch...
Great sketch Debbie! (Debbie Carriere is on the Mojo Monday design team and is also a Close To My Heart consultant, and one very talented stamper!)
And here is the wedding card for Linda...
I used CTMH's Bliss papers and the "Simple Memories" and "Precious Love" stamp sets. The flower was inspired by Tamra Pope's creation using a doily stamp from Simple Memories. I stamped several of them, snipping a little from each one to create the nested flower look. The cake is stamped and embossed with silver then painted in here and there with a touch of Pearl Paint mixed with Parchment re-inker. This gave the flowers and the frosting a little color and shimmer. The pearl inside the flower is from Tim Holtz Idea-ology.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great Wednesday!
