Here it is! My first challenge card!

Hello all you fabulous readers! HAPPY CANADA DAY!

I hope that your week has been going great.  Wow what a super challenge over at Just A Scrappin'!

This weeks challenge was "Weddings". Make a card, layout, or project, using any colours we wanted.  

Here is the card I came up with! I was a little strapped for time on this one, so it didn't get as fancy as I was hoping, but I still think it turned out great. :)

~ The card is 7"x5 1/4"

~ Base cardstock is "Midnight Shimmer"

~ Background cardstock is "White Shimmer". (6.5" x 4.75") Both are from Creative Memories it was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I can't seem to find the name of it.

~ Sentiment is a title sticker from the "Divine" collection by Creative Memories. It is on non-embossed "White Shimmer" again. It is attached with one layer of pop dots on each corner.

~ The bride and groom are cut from the "Stretch Your Imagination" Cricut cartridge at 3". The black backing behind them is a tone on tone accent paper, also from the Creative Memories "Divine" collection. This was given a double pop dot on three corners and only one pop dot on the upper left hand corner.
On the inside I cut a plain white cardstock mat to use for writing on (6.5" x 4.75")

~ Paper trim on the top is an accent paper ("Divine" collection.)
~ Floral embellishment ("Divine" collection)

This card was fun and easy to make and I think it shares the emotions and elegance of the day quite well. :-)

Thanks for popping by! :-)


  1. Really love the inside of the card too!

  2. Thanks Pat! I think the inside is just as important as the outside. I will have many more cards posted in the weeks to come! :)
