Mr and Mrs Wedding Card

My friend Gloria recently swapped stamps, dies and embossing folders with me.  It's nice to try something new and also fun to see what you have when pulling everything out for your friend to choose. :-)

Last week my husband asked me to make a wedding card for one of the guys at work.  I thought I would put Gloria's Cheery Lynn - Border Die - Lace Rose and Flourish to work.  Whenever, I cut a fine detail die I always add a layer of baking paper just to help the cut come out.  I loved the look of the cut baking paper I decided to use it as a shadow.  

Now I have a love hate relationship with this card.  As in the photo above I see a hot mess.  In the photo below I like the end result. :-)

I also tried out my first ever alphabet dies, they are from Impression Obsession (IO).  They cut beautifully.  Originally, I was going to put Congratulations along the bottom of the card.  Who knew that word was so long....   :-)

In the end this is not the card that my husband selected....that card follows later in the week.

Thanks for visiting.

  3. That is very elegant and so pretty with the lovely die cuts.Thanks for your comments on my blog - I really miss your posts everyday but it's obvious now that you had a big plan- to get the house renovated before you went back to work - I'm sure it's so much easier to look after- as for the work thing I guess it's good to have a bit more money .things are a bit grim at this end -my husband lost his job this week as the company went bust -no pay for the last two weeks and no holiday pay either - I hope will get lots of jobs done when he is at home all day. hugs.
