Memory Box Floral Cluster Wedding Card

Today I have a wedding card for you. These are ones that I do not make very often. This is for very good friends of my sons. He actually married them. It sounded like a very nice wedding and reception with some friends of theirs and my sons who came from out of state. I also made a card for my son to give them and you will see how different the two are. I will add to this post a bit later.

The guys in the wedding party wore dark blue suits. I am not sure what all the girls wore. I have not seen to many photos yet.

Papertrey Ink Harlequin Cover Plate Die

I chose to go the more formal route with the card from my husband and me. It is hard to tell in the photo but the background is dark blue.

I used a die to cut out the white background pattern.

The flower cluster is die cut from Tim Holtz Gold Metallic Kraft-Stock along with the sentiment. Since there is all the texture on the background I was thinking it might be a good idea to back the gold die cuts with thick cardstock next time on this type of card.

Entered over at the Love Handmade Cards challenge in Flickr for the June challenge.

Supplies:

  • Papertrey Ink Cover Plate Harlequin Die
  • Memory Box Floral Cluster Die
  • Lawn Fawn Scripty Congrats Die
  • Tim Holtz Metallic Kraft-Stock – Gold

Bo Bunny Christmas Card Die with Alcohol Ink

Here I am today with a shiny Christmas card. I have made a couple Christmas cards so far this year but I need to make some more per month to avoid the last minute rush. Been there done that.

 

Alcohol Ink

For the background I was trying a few things that Tim Holtz showed on his product release video recently. I used alcohol inks, blending solution and some 91 percent alcohol. I bought a blower thing that you use with cameras awhile back. I cut more of the tip off trying to make a bigger hole so I wanted to try using it. I made a couple of panels that are this pretty blue. As we know taking photos of shiny stuff is difficult so I will just say this looks much prettier in person.

All the silver parts were cut out with a die set and I used the Tim Holtz metallic paper.

Supplies:

  • Ranger Alcohol Ink – a couple blue colors
  • Bo Bunny Christmas Card Dies set
  • Tim Holtz Metallic Paper
