Tropical Wedding

Hey there!

Long time no see!!  :) I'm moving in 3 weeks, so i've been spending a lot of time packing and organizing. I have also been making cards!! Lots of projects for friends and design team!! So to kick off what i have been making i have 2 wedding cards i made for friends at work.

One card was used for the wedding shower and the other for the whole office to sign and give to the bride to be. The theme for the wedding shower was pink, orange and tropical. So for one i went with a little more tropical, the other, same colors but a little bit more elegant.

The first one i used a flower stamp, that was the closet i had to a tropical flower. I found some cardstock in pink and orange, and stamped the flower and embossed it in white. I cut them out and added some embellishment to the centers. I also used markers to darken some of the flowers.

Next i made by cardbase, then inked up a background stamp in pink and orange. I stamped it off once on scrap paper then stamped it again on the card base. I added the sentiment Happily Ever After in a dark tan color.

Last i added the flowers, die cut leaves and twine to the card front.

For the second card i die cut fabric with PTIs card base-ics die and stamped the background with pink and orange ink. I did the same thing with mat stack 1, but i didn;t ink the background.

I used a heart die and cut out hearts from pink, orange and white cardstock. I pieced together the hearts to make it look like the hearts coming together at the white part. I adhered the heart to mat stack 1.

I adhered mat stack 1 to the card base-ic along with wrapping twine around the card base-ic. I stamped the sentiment along the bottom and then adhered the card base-ic the cardbase. Then last i rounded the corners.

Thanks for stopping by!
