When DH & I got married the minister said, “For Richer or for Poorer” then he said “for poorer” AGAIN!! 😛 Well, maybe that minister saw my craft hobby approaching. LOL!
You may remember seeing this card when it was naked. That was a sad time for the card. All of it’s other friends got dressed, but I couldn’t make a decision about how I wanted to dress this one. That was back in July (here it is naked). Just to show you that sometimes these unfinished cards do get finished, I decided to finally get this one dressed. 😀
That beautiful silhouette and heart behind it came from the Cricut Love Struck Seasonal Cartridge. It was a PAIN to cut out. I cut it right at 3″ and my best advice to you is to cut slow, but with a lot of pressure and high blade depth. That’s what finally worked for me using a pretty thick cardstock. After I cut it out, I used Tsukineko’s Essential Glue Pad to put glue all over the pink silhouette cut. Then I covered the gluey parts with Sparkle Embossing Powder, sort of like this one. Using my Heat Gun, I melted the embossing powder creating that pretty sparkly effect on the silhouette. I ran the other heart through my Sizzix Big Shot using the Cuttlebug Meadow Lark folder. (I bought that on HSN.) Then I used Colorbox Pigment Cat’s Eye Inkpads in Gold and in Frost White and ran them over the raised image. Pretty! I put the heart cuts on the card using Stamping Dimensionals from Stampin’ Up (pop dots are basically the same thing).
The circles were cut using a 1 1/4″ Circle punch and the sentiment “Mr. & Mrs. Forever” (from Stampin’ Up Fundamental Phrases) is stamped on paper I cut with a Stampin’ Up word window punch. Wow, this is sounds more complicated that it is!! I embossed and inked the circles the same way I did the background heart. I inked the pink word windows with the gold Cat’s eye inkpad. Man, I’m almost out of breath discussing all this. LOL
I also used Zip Dry Paper Glue to glue the circles and the sentiments to the card. Whew! Is that it?! I think so!! To find out how I made the first parts of the card you’ll have to get in this little time machine here (time machine to past post) and travel back to July. Wear shorts, it was hot that day.
Alright, it’s the weekend. Go make something!! 😉
