Well, another busy weekend is coming to a close. Valentine's weekend at that...I gave my sweety his matchbox frame, and he really liked it..thought it was very clever (and that is saying a lot for him! A huge compliment!)
I also got a lot of scrapping and card making done this weekend...not to mention a FULL container of weeds pulled from the backyard...tiring, but very rewarding!
One of the cards I finished is for Caardvark's Get Published contest...(isn't Caardvarks just the cutest name for a blog about making cards!...Some people are so witty!) So here is my submission for the contest, a wedding card:
I tried to make something a little different for me...no distressing! I used three shades of cardstock (black, light gray and dark gray) for the background and used my Silhouette to cut the title and Chinese character, both of which I coated with Glossy Accents. The velvet ribbon is recycled from a package I received and the rhinestone swirl is from a company called Want2scrap.com. I used a Martha Stewart edge punch for the lacy edge on the dark gray cardstock...love this punch (especially since I have finally learned the quirky way you need to press in order for the punch to work!)
Pretty simple card, but I am really pleased with how it turned out!
Wish me luck!
