Today I have just a short post to share a quick card I made with my CAMEO to send to my newly-married friends along with the Custom Etched Wedding Frame I shared last week. I wanted to continue with the nature theme and thought this Wedding Lace Papercut from the Design Store would be perfect.
The overlay itself was cut from some lighter weight (65#) canvas-textured cardstock using a fresh blade. I try not to cut intricate designs from too heavy of cardstock…the blade will tend to get caught up in tight corners when using many of the 100# and greater cardstocks. The pale blue base is cut from a sheet out of the Glitzy Glitter Stack from DCWV (you can find it at Joann Fabrics) using the settings for “Glitter Paper”.
After adhering the overlay to the glitter paper with Ranger Multi-Medium Matte (you’ll want to use a strong adhesive with glitter paper), I stamped a sentiment from the “Congratulations” stamp set by Simon Says Stamp and heat-embossed this using Liquid Platinum embossing powder from Ranger. To finish the card off, I added some pearls from my stash (that never seem to get used anymore!) to some of the flower centers and to give my birds “eyes”.
I hope you enjoyed this quick project and that you’ll try some super-intricate cuts with your CAMEO. Thanks for stopping by and I’d love to hear your comments!
