Hi all - had lots of company for the holiday weekend but still managed to finish this card for the current Lily Pad Cards digital challenge. The wonderful Shari Carroll is the guest designer over there so check it out! I used the polaroid frame from the LPC free digi file - soooo cute.
My friend's daughter, Julia, will marry Benjamin later this month so this is what I came up with for their wedding celebration. I used Hero Arts Warmest Wedding Wishes for the cake and rings. Behind the LPC frame, I used vellum embossed with Cuttlebug dots.
I borrowed an idea from my sister Kari who was visiting yesterday. Here she is with the first card she ever made! Kari, my sister-in-law Donna, and I played a game of Scrabble while my mom played Solitaire & "the boys" watched the Indy 500 - they love their races! When done with our game, I asked if anyone wanted to make a card and Kari did. She needed a wedding card so I pulled out my HA wedding stamp set and off she went. I showed her how to use the materials but she came up with her own design. Crafting accident of getting ink on the top of the card base prompted us to add what Kari called the valance on her card - I don't think it looks bad at all. Kari resisted all of Donna's attempts to have her wedding cake be vertical on the card - Kari is a rebel! At first she didn't have the initials and then said she'd like to add some. I cut them from my Silhouette - can't remember which font as she rejected two others! Here she is:
