A wedding!

A friend of mine, an absolutely gorgeous person both inside and out, just got married to someone who is actually good enough for her! I was absolutely thrilled for her, and so very happy to be able to make it to her wedding! Here's the card...

I used mostly SU! supplies, but the stamped images are from Whiff of Joy. I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Copics, and Neenah paper (I think) for the images. And one very sharp X-acto blade!

The card is an easel card, and the directions for making this type of card can be found here. There's a video tutorial there, as well as instruction for making any size card in this style. It's a lot easier than I expected it to be!

I'm hoping to post more details once I get home...wait for it!

Happy Birthday, Saumya!

I finished this card just in time for a wonderful friend's birthday celebration.


All paper (CS and DSP) is SU!
Henry Mouse is a stamp from Whiff of Joy.

The sentiment stamp is from SU!

Colouring was done with Copics...

and SU! inkpads with a blender pen. Ink was either SU! or Memento Tuxedo black.

The pretty eyelet ribbon is from SU!

The circle die is from Nestabilities, and the glitter glue is from Stickles.

And here's the actual card...

The card design is taken from a Mojo Monday challenge which you can find here, along with many other samples of this design.
