Embossed Wedding Bells

Embossed Wedding Bells

wwDSC_1252.jpg

Two embossing folders were used to create this CAS, 5 1/2 inch square wedding card.  The bells were from the Sizzix Textured Impressions “Together Forever” set (#661488).  The background was made with the “Dotty Floral” folder by Apple Blossom Designs (#EFOB0056).  This folder is large – 6 x 6 inches.  (I trimmed my panel down to 5 x 5 inches for this card.)  The embossing effect on these folders is very strong, and so it is recommend that thick card in excess of 250gsm be used.  However, the card stock I wanted to use was light weight, so I lightly spritzed the card stock with water before running it through my machine which seemed to prevent it from cracking.  I used my Big Kick with the multi-purpose platform ( no shims/tabs) and 2 cutting plates.

The background card stock is from the Recollections Shimmer Silver & Champagne pack and has a beautiful, subtle shimmer to it (which you can see a bit better below).  I love this paper for “elegant” card designs.

I embossed the wedding bells on water color paper (I love the texture!) and added a few pearls to finish it off.

Sealed With A Kiss Anniversary Card

Sealed With A Kiss Anniversary Card

(inside: In all you dream and in all you do, may the love you share bring joy to you…)

This amusing, kissing couple image is from a stamp set called “Sealed with a Kiss” by Paper Pretties.  Sadly, the online store closed, but I contacted the owner who actually still had the stamp set, and I was able to purchase it from her.  Yay!!

I used a die from the Spellbinders Labels 2 set (S4-162) to create my focal panel on this z-fold card.  I sponged GKD Dark Chocolate ink over/around my stamped image while the die cut was still in the die.  To create the z-fold card base, I scored my 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch panel at 4 1/2 and 2 1/8 inches.

The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers (woman: B32, B34, RV02, E57, E47, E13; skin: E50, E13, E21; man: E44, E59, E55, E51, E57).

The greeting is unnamed (#97219) by Inkadinkado.  The sentiment inside is called “In All Your Dreams” from Print Words by Annette Allen Watkins.  (I masked off the “happy wedding day” part of this stamp.)

American Crafts (#320337) patterned paper was used along with Recollections kraft and white card stock.

Z-fold cards fold flat for mailing.

Hearts and Flourishes Anniversary Card

Hearts and Flourishes Anniversary Card

xDSC_7986.jpg

(inside:  Best wishes today & always!)

This CAS card features a die cut that was adapted from the cut file called “5×5 Hearts Flourish Card (design #116160)” by Daniela Angelova which I purchased from the Silhouette store.

The panel was cut from champagne shimmer card stock from the Recollections and was paired with gray and ivory both from the Recollections Coffee and Cream heavy weight card stock pack.

The greeting is from the Gina K Designs “The Wetlands” stamp set and was heat embossed with versamark ink and Recollections silver embossing powder.

You can see the greeting better with a little less light:

Perfect Together Anniversary Slider Card

Perfect Together Anniversary Slider Card

This interactive card has a cute couple inside that comes together for a kiss and hug when the card is opened  I made this card for my husband for our 30th wedding anniversary.

I had seen a card with a similar sliding element online a while ago and searched high and low for a video tutorial on how to make one.  I finally found one, but there seemed to be an error with the measurements because the pieces did not fit properly and the card would not open all the way.  (Maybe it was me!)  Anyway, I took the general concepts from the video and got to work trying to figure it out.  After going through quite a bit of paper, I came up with something that finally worked for me.  (HERE is a tutorial on how I made mine.)

The man and woman die cuts were adapted from an image I found online that I “traced” and cut with my Silhouette software and die cutting machine.  I cut several of each and layered them to make them thicker.

The black die cut frame on the card front was made with a silhouette file called “you and me” by Rhonna Farrer (design id #173722) that I purchased in the Silhouette store.  The file contains the words, and I sized and welded it to the frame I created.  The Love Word paper is by The Paper Studio.  I covered it with a piece of vellum so it wasn’t so dark and busy behind my die cut frame.  The “perfect together” on the inside was also created and cut with my silhouette.

The anniversary stamp was from the “Lacy Borders” set from Gina K Designs.

Once Upon A Time Anniversary Card

Once Upon A Time Anniversary Card

I recently posted Peek-A-Boo graduation cards for my kids, and here is another one I made for my parents’ 55th wedding anniversary.  When you open the card, the wedding day image from the front “transforms” into a photo of my mom and dad now.

I used Gina K Lovely Lavender and white card stock along with “Fancy Swirl Foiled – Silver” card stock from The Paper Studio.  The sentiment (inside and front) was computer generated.  To create the frames and openings, I used a die from the Spellbinders “Artist Trading Cards” set (S3-208) and a We R Memory Keepers Frame Punch Board.

There is lots of shine on this card!

HERE is a video tutorial from You Tube that shows how to create this type of card.
