I had a fun day today as I am demoing at a local paper crafts show this weekend, today was the first day of the show and it was fun catching up on people who read my blog regularly. Thank you to all those who came up and said hi ... it is great to know someone reads this :).
I needed an engagement card for my daughter and her partner in a couple of weeks time and I had taken the stamp out this morning and put on my desk to remind me to make it ... when I saw Beate's weekend sketch for this week I decided it was just the right sketch for the image I wanted to use.
I stamped the image onto white card using black ink ... the dress for the girl was stamped on Papertrey Inks new patterned paper and paper pieced over her dress .... I used my paper piercing mat & tool to pierce the top corners of this card and then layered it to my rectangle nestabilities. I did have to join my scallop rectangle to get the size I needed for this image.
I used my swiss dots cuttlebug embossing folder for the background of my base card ... I have a feeling this embossing folder is going to get a lot of use ... it has to be one of my favorites.
I didn't have the sentiment in the size I needed to so used my computer to generate the sentiment and printed it out. .. after layering it to my card I added 2 blue pearls that I purchased today at the show to the top corners of the sentiment.
