Hello! I'm back with a wedding card for my buddy's brother and his new wife. I know it's a little unconventional for a wedding card, but I think it's perfect, especially for a couple with a sense of humor. I don't know this particular couple all that well, but I do know the rest of the family extremely well, and I think this card will be just fine ;D
This set is by Bombshell Stamps and it is my absolute favorite Bombshell Stamps set OF. ALL. TIME! It is called 'Til Death. The image is fabulous and that sentiment...need I say more?! This set just screams crazy cool! Okay, must calm down. That's better.
I colored the image with my Copics, then added glitter glue to various parts of the banner. Next, I coated the heart and the diamond with a generous amount of dimensional lacquer. I distressed the oval die cut that everything is sitting on, by leaving the die cut in the die, and sponging Antique Linen and Vintage Photo around the edge until it looked nice and old. I finished off the die cut with a little bit of glitter glue around the edge. I added all of this to some lovely Basic Grey papers I picked up yesterday. I believe they are part of the Curio line. Lots of foam tape helps create even more depth (and heft...lol). I hope the happy couple likes it ;D
Before I go, one more thing...in a much earlier blog post (months ago), I confessed that I had to buy a pair of readers for up close tasks. Well, today I had an appointment with the eye doctor and guess what she talked me into...that's right...BIFOCALS! So, I guess it's official, I'm old! My youth has forsaken me and instead left in it's place a pudgy, middle aged, caricature of the person I used to be. Today's escapade was truly a "wake up and smell the Geritol" type of moment. Oh well, what's a girl to do, but embrace middle age right around it's expanding belly.
Until next time, stay crafty ;D
