Wedding Day



Another chance to use my Spellbinders Curved Borders Two. I must have had them for 2 months or more. I just love them and this is only my second time to use them, on my last card and this one. This one uses two of six in the set.

I love this image by Heartfelt Creations/Bella Rose Heart and as I was making the card, I was wishing I had bought the die.  Now, that I'm posting and looked at HFC's website, I realized I did buy the die. Oh, crazy me. Well, too late this time but I'll have it for the next one. This is another image I've had a while and never used so it is new to me. I'm thinking it has been retired. Hope not but I didn't find it tonight on their site. The sentiment is Inspired by Stamping/Flowers Bloom.

I colored the image with Copics , G20, E00, and E02.

If you need something to adhere your intricate dies with, such as the Memory Box Elegant Scroll Work die I used at the bottom of my card, I used Elmer's Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. I recommend it.

I've also used a Martha Stewart eyelet lace punch and the embossing folder is by Anna Griffin, Acanthus. Also, I've added the clear rhinestones which took a quite a while to place.


I'm entering my card into these challenges:

 Penny Black and More Challenge-January challenge-Love is in the Air-Mine is a wedding card

A Creative Romance-Something New-My heart image and curved borders are new

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge-Something New (heart image and curved borders)

The monthly fan club theme at SCS is It's a Beate-ful Life where we are honoring Beate as she retires. She has given us wonderful tutorials for 10 years. She did a tent topper tutorial and I decided
to do one in her honor.

I'm waking up to 5 degrees. Ouch!!! Won't get out of the teens again today. Too cold down south!

We've got 5 degrees this morning too! It's really weird that you would get it that cold where you live. Crazy, crazy weather.

What a gorgeous wedding card. Wow! And it cracked me up that you didn't realize you had the die for the heart. I forget about stuff I have too (I'm guessing it means I have too much, but I don't care!).

Love white on white cards and you did a fabulous job with the punches and dies! Love that curvy bit!

Cathy said...

This card is elegant, and beautiful!
It is easy to forget what supplies we have! I can't seem to organize properly! I see beautiful craft rooms on Pinterest and dream! Benzi our weather in Ohio is so cold -40 wind chill last night! Brrrr

jimlynn said...

I'll have to get some of the Elmer's spray adhesive! Those type of things are always so hard to get on without glue showing everywhere! Thanks for the tip on that!

TOO cold!! Hope y'all warm up soon up that way!

Love your card! That curved border die is just beautiful and so is your card! Love the pretty image. A very elegant and beautiful card.

Fancy, oh so fancy, and elegant! You did a great job with your fussy cutting and got some great hand exercises. Just think if you had used that die you would have missed that opportunity...lol

After the game my son said "I'm transferring". He was so disappointed. It was an awesome game!

Hope you faired well with this artic freeze. Some of my pipes froze but all is well now.

Maria said...

Oh WOW! This really is such an awesome elegant & feminine card. Love those curved S/B dies - you hit this one outta the ballpark. Love the idea of the E's on your roses too...really pretty & unusual choice there. Thanks for the spray glue tip. Will check that out. Loved all the lace-iness on this beautiful image. It really is a wonderfully special Valentine card. TFS, Brrr to your temps, and hope today is warming up a bit. We are supposed to. Hugs
