MCS Challenge - Wedding Theme

Good morning! Today is the beginning of a new challenge at My Craft Spot - and our theme this week is Weddings! I decided to try something a little creative with my stamps - and this is the result:

So...for this card, I started off by cutting a heart out of some vellum to use as a stencil. I just folded it in half, and cut it - like we probably all used to do as kids, right? Then I taped that over some white cardstock, and used the "LOVE" word from Postage Stamps stamp set to fill it in. I inked it up with black ink, then stamped it 3 times before re-inking to give a gradient effect to the words. Once I filled it in, I removed the mask, and had a text heart! Next, I heat embossed my sentiment from Happily Ever After on vellum, and attached that over the top, adding some silver glitter washi tape to the top and bottom. Added a few Caribbean sequins, some white enamel dots, some pattern paper from MME, and some silver thread tied around and in a bow to finish it all off!

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you will join us and play along this week!

  2. Neat touch with the vellum, but I think the sequins add a pop of color.
