I don’t know about you, but among my friends and family, wedding season seems to be in full swing! To make sure I’m ready before busy summer travel plans take over, I’ve been whipping up a few wedding cards lately to have on hand. This one features the “Sweet William” stamps and dies by Sheena Douglass.
Since these dies cut right up to the edge of the stamped image, they may seem more difficult to use, but here’s a tip: cut with your die first. Then, turn your stamp so that the rubber is facing up, ink it up, and carefully line up and place the die-cut onto the upside-down stamp, pressing over the entire thing with your fingers.
Once die-cut and stamped, I colored the images with my Spectrum Noir markers and shaped the leaves and flowers with my fingers or an ball-tipped stylus. Liquid adhesive and foam tabs were used to give the flowers tons of dimension.
The background was created by layering a brick wall die-cut over a card base made from White Pearl Shimmering Cardstock. That perfect wedding sentiment (from the “Phrases” set) was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.
Are you ready for wedding season?
