First Wedding Card

Today was yard and lawn work. The fall clean-up is not nearly as much fun as the spring planting. Every summer goes by quicker than the last one. I remember when my youngest daughter was going into grade 11, I think, and about a week before school started she said, “I can’t believe school starts next week. The summer has flown by……OH MY GOD, I sound like you. Am I old now?” Funny kid.

Before I started in on the yard work I made a quick trip to the library and stopped at our local scrapbooking store, The Paper Pickle, to see if they had any tiny adhesive pearls…..the dollar store only had large ones. They did have them but they also had some embossing folders on sale for $3.00 each so I quickly grabbed 3 of them… my embossing folders. Then I spotted some glimmer paper perfect for wedding cards so they were added. $20 later I left….after ordering two more Spellbinder dies….(big sigh)…oh well, at least I don’t drink or smoke! Gotta spend my money on something ‘cus you can’t take it with you.

This is one of the wedding cards that I made this week.

This background paper was in a pack that I picked up at the thrift store and thought it would be perfect for wedding cards. It has a faint printed background with just a hint of light blue here and there. So, first I ran it through an embossing folder to get some texture on just one side. Light blue ink was randomly sponged on over the embossed area.
“Congratulations” was stamped in blue ink right onto the white ribbon. It’s prettier in real life. Then I glued on the matching white bow. The butterflies were all die cut with two different Memory Box dies and glued on. Then I added the pearl drops by using Rangers Pearl Stickles. This is when I decided I really needed to buy some real small pearls. These ones turned out alright but it is a pain to get them the same size.

That’s all for a lovely summer day….oh wait, it’s September isn’t it!


ps: Jinxxxygirl, I need your new email and address if you are so inclined to send it to me. Thanks.

Oh YES i'am 'so inclined to send it to you:) Infact you almost had it when you typed jinxxxygirl.... lol its :) Sorry about that Violet... We are getting a taste of Fall this weekend... Fri/Sat/Sun the high is in the 70's and at night we even get a taste of the high 40's! Yeah!!! I'm so so ready... Ready to have windows open and long sleeves... have the leaves change color... Right now the deer still have felt on their horns and the hummingbirds are still hanging around... the humidity is so thick you can cut it with a knife...uuughhh.... BUT we had rain the last three days and more expected over night...So so need it...The fawns are losing their spots... and running around the yard kicking up their heels and chasing each other as the sun goes down.. ! Maybe they can taste Fall in the air too?!

I LOVE this first wedding card... I just love butterflies and the pearls are perfect... In the photo the stamped sentiment looks crooked? I can't wait to see what else you have up your sleeve... :) Hugs! deb
